Individualized Study Courses & Pre-Authorization

If you need to register for an individualized study course that requires pre-authorization (research, reading, special problems), please refer to the pre-authorization form and related instructions on the current student website.

Mandatory Hardware and Software Requirements

Digital tools are necessary for all landscape architects. The department requires all students to have unlimited access to their own personal computer. Because of the professional application of complex graphic programs and large data files for most coursework, the department’s computer requirements exceed the average user’s computing needs. See the Student Computer Purchasing Guide on the College of Design Technology Services blog for recommended specifications and departmental requirements. In addition to hardware requirements, please note the department’s specific software requirements and recommendations.

College of Design Student Services

The College of Design Student Services office offers general education advising, career services, job and internship assistance, scholarship information, and referrals to student groups so that you can explore, engage, and connect through classes, internships, and events.
