Admission into the undergraduate programs in the School of Architecture is only available in the fall semesters. Students must complete the admissions process before the June 1st deadline. We will accept the first 300 students to have completed their admissions and enrollment (First time enrollment does not occur until orientation). Students should apply through the Office of Admissions and list Architecture or Interior Design as their major of choice; there is not a separate admission process into the School of Architecture.
