Dear Freshman, Transfer or Graduate Level Architecture Applicant:

Thank you for visiting the Department of Architecture at Florida International University’s College of Architecture + The Arts on Acceptd. At the Department of Architecture, what you learn inside and outside the classroom empowers you to think, create and act differently. Our talented students become extraordinary architects and designers, teachers and scholars by developing their minds, their talents and their vision. As an incoming architecture student, you’ll find the atmosphere abounds with creativity, innovation and inspiration. Our emphasis is on making the most of who you are and what you want to become. Your individual exploration and educational needs are our primary concern. Located in Miami, a global center for design and culture, our program takes full advantage of our amazing setting.

All freshman, transfer and graduate applicants are required to submit a portfolio of creative work. While you are asked to submit your required design portfolio file digitally via Acceptd, please note that all applicants to our program must also complete FIU’s application for admission. The link to the undergraduate application is available here, and the link to the graduate application is available here. Applicants who submit a portfolio file to Acceptd but who do not complete the FIU application process cannot be reviewed for admission by the department.

Before you begin the portfolio submission process and the FIU online application process, please make sure you carefully read the Department of Architecture’s portfolio submission requirements and application instructions, which can be found on our departmental admissions page. The portfolio content requirements differ for Freshman, Transfer and Graduate applicants. The departmental admissions page will give you all the information necessary for your specific program and entry point and for both the application process and the portfolio submission process.

While not required, we would like to invite you to tour our program and our excellent facilities and observe classes. Please call the Department Of Architecture Admissions/Advising Office at 305.348.4884 to schedule an appointment. Should you require additional information or have any specific questions about the admissions process, please call or write us at any time.

Again, we thank you for your interest and we look forward to meeting you in the near future.
