MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE
Candidates for admission to the Master of Architecture program must apply to both the M.Arch. program and the Graduate School of the University of Washington.
Admission to the M.Arch. Program is a highly competitive process. The Department of Architecture’s M.Arch. Admissions Committee gives priority to applicants whose apparent abilities will enable them to complete the program expeditiously and with a high level of achievement. In evaluating applicants, the committee considers the following materials:
The first step in the application process is to apply online to the Office of Graduate Admissions. This application will request the following documents:
In addition to the on-line application, the process requires that the following items are sent directly to the Department of Architecture (note: all other documents are submitted as part of the on-line process):
The application form and all supporting materials must be received at the following address on or before January 15:
University of Washington
Decisions will be mailed to applicants no later than April 15.
Applicant files will be retained for one year. Reapplication for the following year requires the submission of a new application to the Graduate School, along with the application fee. When reapplying, candidates should also consider updating the portfolio as well as transcripts or other application materials to reflect current activity or coursework.
Application materials are retained for one year. If you wish to reapply to the program, our department can reactivate the following items: transcripts, letters of recommendation and statement of purpose. The UW Graduate Admissions Application and the Department Application must be resubmitted new for each admissions cycle.
Reapplicants must also submit in writing to the department (by December 15) which items from your prior application to reactivate and which you will be replacing/updating. Students who were not previously accepted and wish to reapply are strongly encouraged to submit new application materials to strengthen their chance of admission.
Please contact the Graduate Program Adviser to confirm reapplication prior to January 15.
