School of Architecture

Transfer Requirements   The School of Architecture welcomes properly qualified transfer students from other colleges and universities. An applicant for transfer admission must be in good academic and social standing at his or her present college, and must be eligible to return there.

To be competitive for admission, it is recommended that a transfer student have a cumulative grade point average of B+ or better in all college work attempted and have completed courses in the following areas: English, mathematics (calculus), natural science (physics is recommended), social science, and humanities. Evidence of interest in the profession is also considered. Also see the section entitled Requirements in chapter 7.

A minimum academic residence of two years is required for a degree in the School of Architecture. Also, summer session study at the University is sometimes required of transfer applicants.

Transfer Credit   Credit toward a degree is allowed for comparable work to courses offered at the University if such work has been completed in an accredited college. Credit is not granted for work completed elsewhere with a grade less than C or its equivalent. The Dean of the School of Architecture governs the awarding of transfer credit. In no case are more than 66 transfer credits applied to an undergraduate degree for the School of Architecture.
