Description of Gate

At the end of the first year of the architecture program students are required to apply for formal admission to the Environmental Design program. Acceptance into the program is based on a minimum GPA of 3.0 and a portfolio submission of work from the first year design studio courses. Ninety-one students are accepted each year into the second year of the Environmental Design program. Once admitted to the second year of the program, a student maintains the acceptance status through the remaining three years of the undergraduate program.
