All prospective students are required to submit application materials directly through the University of Arizona web-based application portals, and we're ready to assist. Applicants may access their applications as many times as necessary to refine and complete them before formal submission.
Applications are due by May 1 of each year for students who wish to begin their studies in the fall semester of that year and by November 1 for those who wish to begin in the spring of the following calendar year. No portfolio of work is required for our undergraduate degrees in Architecture, Landscape Architecture and Sustainable Built Environments.
Most graduate students begin their studies at CAPLA in the fall semester, although we accept applications throughout the year and will, on occasion, admit students for the spring semester. The application deadline for priority consideration is January 1; review of all applications submitted after this date will occur on a rolling basis. Portfolios of work are a required element of the application materials for the Master of Architecture, Master of Science in Architecture and the Master of Landscape Architecture but not for the Master of Real Estate Development and Master of Science in Urban Planning.
