Transfer Students Seeking Credit for Previous Architecture Courses

Admission Requirements  > General and Freshman Requirements > Transfer Students Seeking Credit for Previous Architecture Courses

Enrollment in studio courses is restricted to students admitted to the college. Applicants must first meet general university admission requirements (listed in this catalog) in order to be considered by the College of Architecture and Design.

Placement level in design studios is based on an evaluation of transcripts and portfolios. Applicants must submit a portfolio of academic design work which should contain examples of class work accomplished for credit and must be presented in an 8.5 x 11 inch format and contained in a binder, clearly marked with the applicant’s name and contact information. Do not send original work, only reproductions. The portfolio should be received well in advance of the semester applied for to allow time for evaluation. Applicants not submitting portfolios will not be given advanced placement, and if accepted, must begin with the Freshman Design Studio I, ARCH 1500 .

Portfolios should be sent to:
