Dual Degree Applicants
All School of Architecture programs have sequenced curricula that begin in August so only accepts applications the Fall semester each year. Applicants are responsible to make sure that all of their materials have been submitted by the application deadlines. Applications cannot be reviewed until all required parts are received. It is critical that applicants check their online application frequently after submitting the required materials to ensure everything has been received. If the online record indicates a "referred status" then the application is complete and our Admissions Committee will begin the review process.
January 15th is the Priority Deadline for applications to all graduate programs in the School of Architecture. Applications received by this deadline will be reviewed and considered for assistantships. Applications received after this date are unlikely to receive assistantship offers and will only be considered if space is available.

Applications received between January and May will be considered only if space remains available in these programs. Because space is limited, students are advised to complete their application well in advance of this date.
