Students who have completed acceptable architecture course work prior to entering the M.Arch. Program may apply for advanced standing credit or course waivers in nonstudio courses. No requests for advanced standing credit are considered until official copies of relevant transcripts have been submitted to the Office of Admissions.
There are two situations in which one may receive advanced standing in the M.Arch. Program: (1) a student who is admitted into the second year of the M.Arch. Program may receive advanced standing for the first-year courses including the two design studios (potentially 36 points); (2) a student admitted into the first year with an undergraduate degree in architecture may receive credit for some courses; credit will be evaluated on an individual basis (maximum 9 points).
