Undergraduate Admissions

Becoming an Undergraduate Student

In the School of Architecture at UT Arlington, we offer two undergraduate programs: 

Admissions into our program is in the Fall semester only.

If you apply to UT Arlington for any other semester (i.e. Spring), you would not have the option for architecture nor interior design, you would need to change your application to a Fall semester.

Both of our undergraduate programs take a minimum of 8 semesters (4 years) to complete for both incoming freshmen and transfer students.

Admissions requirements

All of the admissions requirements are handled through the Office of Admissions; we do not have a separate admissions process.
