Graduate Programs Admissions

College of Architecture and Planning


International applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their applications as soon as possible in order to receive a timely decision after the application deadline.

We do not offer spring admissions for any programs.


Admission is increasingly selective. Grades, scores (if required), samples of past accomplishments, letters of reference and personal statements are of primary importance.

All admission decisions are made after the application deadline. Most applicants typically receive a decision 4 to 6 weeks after the application deadline. We will communicate decisions as soon as they are available. We do not offer early decisions in any circumstance. 

Please see the individual program application instructions to begin your application. The links are above. Most of the application process can be completed online. Official transcripts are still to be mailed to the College of Architecture and Planning.

Mailing address for transcripts
All applicants should submit one official copy of their transcripts from each institution attended EXCEPT for study abroad experiences. Please note that your application will not be considered until all of your application materials are received. Send your supporting materials to:
