Advanced Placement and Course Waivers

The School reviews students on an individual basis and makes an effort to honor completed courses that have sufficient equivalency in learning outcomes with courses required to earn a Master of Architecture degree.

The following steps explain the process behind course waivers and credit transfers:

  1. Students with non-accredited architecture degrees are placed in the MArch III track (Bachelor of Arts in Architecture, Bachelor of Fine Arts in Architecture as well as other non-architecture majors).
  2. Students with a background in architecture, but do not hold a Bachelor of Science in Architecture or the five-year Bachelor of Architecture, may submit a portfolio presenting mastery of orthographics and physical model making skills in order to waive the introductory design tools course (ARPL 500) required during the summer prior to the start of courses. Further studio waivers are based on transcript, syllabus and portfolio.
  3. The credits earned in an equivalent course in which a student achieved a C or better is the basis for a course waiver. 
  4. Courses are reviewed by topic faculty for equivalency and approved or denied based on course content and learning outcomes.
  5. One year of advanced placement (~36 credits) is the maximum number of credit hours waived. Additional equivalencies that a student may have earned satisfy required course topics, but not required credits.
