4+3Process

4-year pre-professional [120 credit] undergraduate degree plus a 3-year [90 credit] graduate level professional degree which concentrates most of the professional courses into the graduate level. The restructuring of the curriculum allows the program to provide student with an opportunity to earn an undergraduate degree after 4-years. This should improve graduation rates and time to graduation at both the pre-professional (undergraduate) and professional (graduate) levels.

Except for some pre-existing conditions, all students entering the D. Arch. Professional Program must possess an undergraduate degree. All applicants are reviewed for placement. Depending on their background, those with a pre-professional [120 credit] degree in architectural studies, or equivalent, will be able to complete the D.Arch. in 3 years [90 credits]. Students without a pre-professional degree must make up deficiencies which will usually require and additional semester or two [15-18 credits] to meet all professional criteria. The restructuring of the curriculum from a 7-year program to the 4+3 or 4+3 ½ complies with the National Architectural Accrediting Board standards for the professional D.Arch. degree.
