Transfer – Architecture
You may apply for transfer to The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture if:
|STEP 1||Submit the first part of your application online by January 9, 2017.|
|STEP 2||You will receive a confirmation email.|
|STEP 3||You will have to prepare and submit by January 17, 2017:
Send all materials to the Office of Admissions, 30 Cooper Square, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10003.
*Under certain circumstances, we will waive the SAT/ACT requirement. Generally, only transfer students and/or non-traditional students' requests to waive the standardized testing requirement are considered. You must be able to prove you have had at least one year of college-level math and college-level English to apply for the waiver. The Admissions staff will then consider your request and notify you if you can waive the SAT/ACT requirement. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
You will receive a studio test in late January which you must complete and submit by the deadline provided (approximately 3-4 weeks later).
The studio test will be sent to all applicants via email on the same day in late January after the application deadline.
The studio test will include portfolio requirements for transfers. All portfolio work should be sent with the studio test.
You will receive an admission decision by the beginning of April.
If admitted, transfer students are offered admission into a specific year of the five-year design sequence. Placement in the design sequence is a condition of the offer of admission and not subject to further review or appeal. By accepting the offer of admission, the transfer student agrees to this placement and acknowledges his/her anticipated graduation date. **
*Applicants whose native language is not English and who have not graduated from a secondary school in a country with English as the official medium of instruction are required to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and submit official scores to the Office of Admissions. Click here for more information regarding International Applicants.
** It will be necessary for the matriculating transfer student to successfully complete the design studio to which he/she is admitted, as well as all subsequent studios, as part of his or her degree requirements. There is no opportunity for transfer students to accelerate through the required design sequence. Transfer applicants from programs other than accredited architecture programs will likely be placed in the first-year design studio (Architectonics). The official academic transcript of a transfer student will be reviewed prior to the student’s first registration. This review will determine what, if any, additional coursework may be eligible for transfer credit. (See page 37 for more information on transfer credit evaluation by the School of Architecture.)
Deferral of an Offer of Admission: Due to the small size of the programs, the deferral of an offer of admission to the B.Arch. (undergraduate) and/or Master of Architecture II (graduate) program is not permitted.
