Comprehensive Review

The undergraduate architecture program has two components: general architecture and pre-professional architecture. Admission to the general architecture program is open to all students admitted into the university. Admission into the pre-professional program in the second-year is competitive and based on a comprehensive review of the student's written essay exam, portfolio, statement of intent, and institutional grade point average. In order to be reviewed, students must successfully complete the following courses with a minimum grade of "C". ARCH 1301, ARCH 1101, ARCH 1302, ARCH 1102, and ARCH 1311.

Transfer students who have taken Architecture classes at other institutions and wish to have their work reviewed for placement in the pre-professional program should contact Ms. Sarah Hatley for information on how to apply.
