Architectural education is unlike any type of education you’ve likely encountered to date. We highly encourage you to attend one of our architecture-specific information sessions online or in-person.

In-person visits

The School of Architecture will offer in-person, architecture-specific information sessions on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 11:00am ET. These sessions provide a general overview of our program and a walking tour of our facilities. We will not be hosting visitors Friday, September 10 due to a full school retreat. 

We encourage you to attend the architecture session as part of the full “Campus Visit” with the Office of Admissions at Syracuse University. For more information and to register click here. When you register, you’ll have the option to select a school or college information session. Our available 11:00 a.m. sessions will be listed on the form. 

Virtual Information sessions for prospective students

Sessions last 1.5 hours and include information on the educational path of an architect, our BArch program, studio culture, the application process, and portfolio submission.

As part of your application to the School of Architecture you must submit a portfolio. Be sure to review our portfolio requirements here. In addition, you have the opportunity for an optional portfolio interview with a member of our architecture admissions team. During this interview you will provide us with insight as to why you are interested in studying architecture, describe the portfolio work that you chose to include, and your interest in studying at our prestigious institution. This is not a critique of your work.

Interviews take place until December 15 with a member of the architecture admissions committee. Please note, if you are applying Early Decision (ED), the review would need to take place by November 15 to meet the ED application deadline. Your portfolio must be submitted in SlideRoom 24 hours prior to your review. 

All interviews will take place on Zoom. Click here to reserve your fifteen minute interview timeslot.*
