Transfer Applicants

Studio placement and transfer credits for architecture courses will be awarded based on portfolio evaluation. Submit 10-15 pieces of your best work including a range of coursework and/or personal projects. Submissions may be uploaded in multi-page PDFs, if necessary (10MB each).

Things to consider:

  1. Organize and label projects by course, sorted from earliest to most recent course taken.
  2. We need to see the specific work you did in each course.
  3. Don’t overemphasize hand drawing. Computer drafting/drawing is more important in determining transfer placements.
  4. Clearly identify group projects and identify the work you did in these group projects.
  5. Submit your portfolio early so that you can be considered for the Woodbury Prize.
