Bachelor of Architecture Admission Requirements

All students admitted to the undergraduate architecture program first enter the Bachelor of Science in Architecture Technology (B.S.A.T.) program, and undertake a two-year common core curriculum. This curriculum includes design studios and architectural history courses, as well as liberal arts courses such as English composition, math, physics, behavioral science, economics, fine arts, and social science. After successful completion of this program, students may:

  1. Continue with the four-year B.S.A.T. program
  2. Apply for admission into the five-year B.Arch. program*
  3. Opt for a B.S.A.T. with a concentration in energy management or business
  4. Undertake a combined B.S.A.T./M.S. in energy management degree

*Admission to the B.Arch. program requires the submission of a representative portfolio of individual student design work, called the Foundation Portfolio, which is reviewed by a committee of faculty members. Following the acceptance of the Foundation Portfolio by the review committee, the student candidate may apply for admission to the Bachelor of Architecture program. At the time of application, the student must demonstrate a cumulative grade average of 2.75 for all courses undertaken at NYIT or 3.0 for courses in architecture exclusively. Candidates for admission into the B.Arch. program must submit their Foundation Portfolios for review prior to enrollment in Design V or Architecture 401. Candidates must complete the application process and gain admission into the B.Arch. program prior to enrolling in Design VI or Architecture 402.
