Undergraduate Programs

Apply for Undergraduate Programs

First-time applicants and transfer applicants will both use the Common Application.



Graduate Programs

Apply for Graduate Programs




The Admissions Committee will begin reviewing all Master degree programs applications on January 15 for acceptance, for scholarships and for advanced placement. Decisions on applications completed and submitted by the January 15 application deadline will be acted upon first.


While the committee will continue to accept applications for the Masters degree programs on a rolling basis until June 1, 2017, those applications would be considered late and are less likely to receive scholarships and advanced placement. The committee advises those applicants interested in scholarships or advanced placement to submit applications without delay.



Once an applicant is admitted by the University, the School of Architecture and Planning will be in contact with each admitted student to provide information opportunities for Advanced Standing, Scholarships, and Teaching Assistant and Residential Advisor positions.
