Transcript Evaluation & Advising

Transcript evaluations will be completed in the late summer after a student has officially accepted our offer of admission and paid their deposit. The results of the transfer evaluations and additional academic advising, elective course options, etc., will be reviewed when you attend the orientation program in the fall. This is where you will sit down with an advisor and review the course content together to make a determination of the exact courses that you should take. We will be emailing select students with our initial assessments (over the Summer) if it is determined that previous course work does not match our core curriculum requirements for the degree.

Once you have reviewed the transcript evaluation and completed your advising session at the orientation, if you feel there are discrepancies you should bring copies of the syllabi from your course work that you feel meets our requirements to an individually requested advising appointment. To make an appointment with an architecture advisor, please email
