Undergraduate Admissions

Admission to the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture and Design is a two-stage process. First, applicants must be admitted to the University of Houston. Second, applicants who indicate Architecture, Interior Architecture, or Industrial Design as their first choice major will then be considered for admission into the College of Architecture and Design. Once applicants are admitted to the University of Houston, all applicants are strongly encouraged to submit a portfolio, including a statement of interest. No additional application is required. 

Official transcripts must be sent directly to the University of Houston Office of Admissions.

There are four categories of applicants:
