Summer 2021 – Fall 2021 Update

Important notice to freshmen and transfer freshmen applicants to the Architecture Program.

Students who did not have test scores (ACT or SAT) meeting Kennesaw State’s Architecture Degree Program requirements listed below will need a minimum of 3.0 GPA as calculated by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions in order to be considered for admission to the program.

New admissions to the B.ARCH Program are limited and admission is at the discretion of the Department of Architecture. Students who do not meet the gateway requirements to be accepted into the B.ARCH program, but meet admission requirements for KSU in general should either declare a new major or focus area. Those students who still wish to pursue the B.ARCH major may request a change of major in spring 2021 for entry in fall 2021. Students pursuing this option should declare the STEM focus area and pursue their Georgia Core courses. To be eligible to change majors into the B.ARCH program, students should have taken Math 1113 and Physics 1111 (Lecture and Lab) and have maintained a KSU GPA of 2.5 or higher.

For a select few, they may opt to apply for admission into the Accelerated Track of the B.ARCH program after having completed 36 credits, maintained a KSU GPA of 2.5 and have completed both Math and Physics (lecture and lab). This track is an acceleration of the first two years of the B.ARCH. Students choosing this option must enroll for fall 2020, spring 2021 and summer 2021 semesters.
