Bachelor of Architecture Admissions & Cost
Who will design innovative spaces and places that endure? You will.
While prospective students are required to submit application materials through University of Arizona Undergraduate Admissions, our goal is to help you through the process.
All students applying for Fall 2021 admission to the Bachelor of Architecture must meet the general admissions requirements of the University of Arizona and hold at least a 3.3 PGA (on a 4.0 scale) to enter the program. Students who fall below this criteria and hold at least a 2.9 GPA are still encouraged to apply, as they may be accepted into the program after a comprehensive review of the student's last 30 units' grade average, course rigor and subject relativity to the field of architecture.
Annual Two-Semester Cost
In-state tuition and fees:
$12,828 tuition + $1,397 fees
Out-of-state tuition and fees:
$36,856 + $1,397 fees
Subject to change. Fees vary by year in program.

Students interested in transferring into the Bachelor of Architecture (B Arch) from community colleges or non-NAAB accredited majors must complete all five years of the B Arch program due to its accredited curriculum. In most cases, prospective B Arch students who are planning to begin their studies at a community college or other local university should focus on taking general education courses, including math and English. Ideally, they will transfer after no more than one or two semesters elsewhere.
Students seeking to transfer from another NAAB-accredited B Arch program may apply for advanced standing starting at second year. To do so, they must submit 1) unofficial transcripts, 2) a portfolio of work and 3) syllabi for all architecture-related major courses, including studios. All materials will be reviewed by School of Architecture faculty members. Students are not granted advanced standing without the prior approval of Architecture faculty. Materials should be sent to Recruitment and Outreach Coordinator Luis Zozaya at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CAPLA’s facilities include dedicated studio space, world-class materials and model-building laboratories, unique spaces inside and outside for students to showcase their work or just hang out and much more. Take a virtual tour.Tour the College »
