The Department of Architecture has completed its review of student candidates for entry into the second year professional portion of the architecture program. It is my pleasure to inform you that after a review of your cumulative GPA and progress with prerequisites you have been granted provisional admission to the professional program in architecture. Please register for Arch 253 as soon as possible. Your final admission will be considered after a review of your GPA, portfolio, and academic progress next year. Portfolios will be due May 18, 2007.
You are required to have your own laptop computer for studio courses this year. The department will provide some of the required software. (Please refer to the enclosed letter from Brian C. which explains software options and the CAA website which outlines specifications for computer hardware and software.)
Looking further ahead, you will be applying to the College of Graduate Studies before Feb. 1 of your fourth year studio and you must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 in order to be accepted into the M.Arch program.
Congratulations! The Faculty, staff and I wish you great success in your architecture studies.
