TRANSFER ADMISSION

Transfer students who plan to pursue a major in architecture, city and regional planning or landscape architecture should apply directly to The Ohio State University. Visit the Undergraduate Admissions website for specific information about admissions criteria, application requirements and application deadlines. http://apply.osu.edu, http://undergrad.osu.edu

University Admissions will review coursework and GPA(s) from all previous post-secondary institutions attended. A minimum GPA of 2.5 or higher from previous institutions is required to enter the Knowlton School as a transfer student. (Students who do not meet the 2.5 GPA requirement will enter the university through University Exploration, but may still enroll in prerequisite courses and can still apply to one of Knowlton’s majors. http://exploration.osu.edu)

Architecture or Landscape Architecture

Students with an intended major of Architecture or Landscape Architecture typically enter as pre-majors. Please note that the curriculum for these degrees is sequenced. Students should expect a minimum of 3.5-4 years to complete a degree in Architecture or Landscape Architecture depending on the term of entry and Math placement levels.

Students who begin as pre-majors will complete prerequisite coursework prior to applying to the major. The core sequence of major curriculum begins each autumn semester, but prerequisite courses (ARCH/LARCH 2300 and ARCH/LARCH 2310) are offered every semester including summer. Please contact Angela Beer at 614-247-7244 to discuss the best term of admission for your transfer. Many students find that transferring for Summer semester can save them several semesters of time.

Admitted transfer students who were preivously enrolled in an undergraduate architecture or landscape architecure major at a peer institution may petition to be considered for advanced placement into the major sequence. Petitions require submission of a personal statement, course syllabi, transcript, and portfolio. Please review our transfer petition for advanced placement guidelines.

City and Regional Planning

Students with an intended major of City and Regional Planning will enter the major directly.

TRANSFER CREDIT

Please do NOT send official transcript to the Knowlton School. All official transcripts for the purposes of admission to Ohio State should be sent directly to Undergraduate Admissions according to the step-by-step directions listed online.

Transfer credit is not pre-evaluated prior to enrollment. If you are planning to transfer core coursework toward the major, it will need to be evaluated for equivalency to Ohio State courses and for consistency with our program’s curriculum. Please retain syllabi from your previous institution(s). Technical credit from two-year institutions will typically count toward general electives hours only. All Ohio institutions and many other schools utilize transferology.com.
