Why study Architecture BS at UB? https://catalog.buffalo.edu/academicprograms/architecture_bs.html University at Buffalo Architecture's undergraduate preprofessional Bachelor of Science in Architecture (BS Arch) is formulated around a studio-based curriculum that emphasizes thinking through making. University at Buffalo Architecture boasts one of the largest material shops for an architecture and urban planning school that includes conventional and digital fabrication technologies. Students work directly with materials and tools, producing models that help them connect the formal basis of architecture with its physical construction. In addition, the design studios are supported by lectures and seminars in history, theory and building technologies of architecture. These courses help students understand that architecture is a multi-disciplinary profession that combines knowledge from the humanities, the applied arts and engineering technology. The pre-professional Bachelor of Science in Architecture (BS Arch) is the foundation for our accredited professional Master of Architecture.

Learning Outcomes Upon successful completion of all requirements, the student will have knowledge of: • •

Understanding issues and methods of architectural design, representation and construction Becoming culturally aware, technically competent and environmentally responsible

ap-advising@buffalo.edu |4


• • • •

Freshman studio sequence: basic literacy in design principles and fundamentals using two- and threedimensional media, and to become familiar with the tools, materials, techniques and values that enable an architectural design proposition Sophomore studio sequence: the basic knowledge of historical precedents, site planning and analyzing context and expands the range of design methods Junior studio sequence: students are introduced to a variety of performative criteria that govern the workings of buildings to understand how dynamic forces contribute to the constructional, functional and spatial formation of architecture Senior fall semester studio: students synthesize the social needs of collective domesticity with the real world constraints of site, climate and program

The Learning Environment University at Buffalo Architecture prepares students to see the implications of what architecture does for the built environment by proposing future forms of habitation that are innovative in their aesthetic and cultural contribution and can inspire the social imagination. Students learn as architects, they have a critical role to play in the progress of society. Their work will be the future built environment that will condition how people live, work and socialize. Students need to approach the task of design with great skill, vision and confidence knowing that the pressing questions of architecture have yet to find appropriate answers. The undergraduate studios develop design thinking and craft skills, allowing students to communicate their ideas in professional ways. University at Buffalo Architecture prides itself on a design curriculum that teaches students how to effectively connect the art of design with the science of building.

Becoming an Architecture BS Student https://catalog.buffalo.edu/academicprograms/architecture_bs_applying.html The University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning has an admission policy that actively encourages applicants from protected groups and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or veteran status. Admission is competitive, and applicants are reviewed according to the admission criteria. Acceptance of students in the pre-professional, professional, and advanced graduate programs is determined on the basis of the applicants' qualifications and experience. However, since the school's size is limited, the programs may exercise discretionary powers of selection. Courses and programs offered by the University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning may include an instructional support services fee. Visit the School of Architecture and Planning Undergraduate Education's program page for additional information and academic advisement. National Architectural Accreditation Board Statement on Accreditation: In the United States, most state registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit professional degree programs in architecture offered by institutions with U.S. regional accreditation, recognizes three types of degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture, the Master of Architecture, and the Doctor of Architecture. A program may be granted a(n) 8-year, 3-year, or 2-year term of accreditation, depending on the extent of its conformance with established educational standards. Doctor of Architecture and Master of Architecture degree programs may require a pre-professional undergraduate degree in architecture for admission. However, the pre-professional degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree. The University at Buffalo is the only campus in the State University of New York system to offer the accredited professional master of architecture (MArch) degree. The University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning offers the following NAAB-accredited degree programs: • •

MArch 2-Year (pre-professional undergraduate degree + 64 graduate credits) MArch 3.5-Year (non-pre-professional undergraduate degree + 112 graduate credit)

Next accreditation visit for all programs: 2023 Visit the NAAB Accreditation website for more information on University at Buffalo Architecture NAAB Statement on Accreditation - http://ap.buffalo.edu/academics/Architecture/naab-accreditation.html. Studio Culture Policy Statement. The Department of Architecture in the School of Architecture and Planning at the University at Buffalo acts in accordance with the National Architectural Accreditation Board (NAAB) studio policy requirement. Therefore, all studio faculty and/or departmental administrators agree to: • • • • • • •

Provide students with a syllabus that complies with the University at Buffalo syllabus guidelines, and includes a studio description, objectives, evaluation methods, and grading policies. Encourage students to lead balanced lives. This includes regular sleep and exercise, healthy eating habits, and breaks for non-architecture related endeavors. Assist students in developing effective time management strategies. Integrate knowledge and information acquired in other architecture courses in studio, when possible. Integrate knowledge and information acquired in other disciplines in studio, when possible. Encourage collaboration both within the studio, and, when appropriate, outside of the studio. Provide guidance to new instructors on studio curriculum development.

a p - a d v i s i n g @ b u f f a l o . e d u | 21


• •

In addition to existing guidance and grievance procedures, the department will establish an ombudsman group, comprised of University at Buffalo architecture alumni, to act on behalf of students who are having difficulty with studio culture. All concerns expressed to this group will be kept in confidence unless otherwise expressed by the student. Foster a constructive atmosphere in design reviews that promotes critical dialogue between students and reviewers. Promote theories, research, and experiences that increase students' awareness of multi-cultural issues.

Approved by the voting faculty of the University at Buffalo Department of Architecture: 4/2005.

The Thematic Pathway courses should cover 2 different UB Areas than those covered by the Global Pathway. Thus, students need to complete at least 4 different UB Areas via their Pathways courses. Use the Architecture BS and Environmental Design BA Pathways Worksheets as the guide for organizing your Pathways. Students must use the Path Finder - https://myub.buffalo.edu/path_finder/ - to select their Pathway courses. Students are encouraged to do so early in their careers in consultation with their Academic Advisor. If a student selects a particular Pathway via the Path Finder but then fulfills a different series of courses, s/he must update his/her selection in the Path Finder. Transfer students may use transfer coursework that fulfills a UB area. Transfer students will be able to view such coursework in their Path Finder.

UB Capstone https://catalog.buffalo.edu/policies/ubcurriculum.html#capstone Complete UBC 399. All other UB Curriculum components must be complete or in progress in order to enroll in the UB Capstone. UB Seminar is a prerequisite to UBC 399 and therefore cannot be taken concurrently. The Capstone will require reflection on all components of the UB Curriculum. Any student enrolled in UBC 399 who does not meet the enrollment requirements will be dropped from the course.

General Education Policies Students entering prior to fall 2016 should reference the General Education Requirements in the Undergraduate Catalog from the year of their matriculation at the University at Buffalo. Students who entered UB’s Singapore Institute of Management prior to fall 2017 will adhere to the General Education Requirements in the 2015-2016 Undergraduate Catalog.

a p - a d v i s i n g @ b u f f a l o . e d u | 29


Students entering or reentering UB who have previously earned a bachelor’s degree from an accredited US college or recognized foreign institution will not be required to complete the UB Curriculum when earning their subsequent degree.

Reentering Students Reentering students may be allowed to graduate under the general education program in effect during their previous enrollment at UB if one of the two following conditions has been met. They may do so by submitting a General Education and UB Curriculum Petition Form (PDF). • •

If a student’s previous catalog year is 2002-2015, and his/her course requirements for the UB General Education program that was in place at the time of his/her previous entry have already been completed, he or she may graduate with the original General Education requirements. If a student’s previous catalog year was 2002-2015, and s/he was within 3 courses of completion of the previous general education course requirements when s/he was last enrolled at UB, s/he may complete the remaining courses and graduate with the previous general education program.

Reentering students whose initial catalog year pre-dates 2002 will adhere to the general education program that is active at the time of their reentry regardless of the number of courses completed prior to their break in attendance. Students should review their previous coursework with an academic advisor for potential application to the UB Curriculum via course substitution. A UB Curriculum Petition Form for Pre-2002 Reentering Students (PDF) should be submitted for these requests.

Course Applicability • • •

With the exception of the Diversity Learning requirement, a given course may be applied toward only one UB Curriculum requirement. Courses in which the student opts for S/U grading may not be used to satisfy UB Curriculum requirements. Internship, independent study, undergraduate teaching, experiential learning, and other courses not based on classroom experiences may not be used to meet UB Curriculum requirements.

Transfer Coursework and Test Credit Transfer courses from accredited institutions and other alternative credits that articulate directly to the specified courses listed for each respective UB Curriculum requirement may be used to fulfill that particular requirement. SUNY has established minimum General Education requirements for campuses across the SUNY system. Students should understand that meeting SUNY General Education requirements at other campuses does not mean that they have completed the UB Curriculum. A SUNY General Education Transcript Addendum (GETA) will be accepted as meeting the relevant UBC requirement, regardless of the direct course it articulates to at UB, if the GETA is earned prior to matriculation (for new students) or re-matriculation (for reentering students) at the University at Buffalo. For such students, SUNY GETAs will apply to the UB Curriculum as follows: • •

Basic Communication will fulfill the Communication Literacy 1 requirement. Mathematics will fulfill the Math and Quantitative Reasoning requirement.

a p - a d v i s i n g @ b u f f a l o . e d u | 30


• •

Natural Sciences will fulfill one lecture course of the Scientific Literacy and Inquiry requirement. (Articulated courses may be used to fulfill the remainder of this requirement.) American History, Arts, Foreign Language, Humanities, Other World Civilizations, Social Sciences, and Western Civilization may be used to fulfill 2 of the 3 courses required for the Thematic or Global Pathway. (Articulated courses may be used to fulfill the remainder of this requirement.)

When courses are taken elsewhere while a student is matriculated at UB, only the direct course articulation will apply to the UBC/General Education requirement. GETAs earned by UB students during their matriculation at UB will not be applied. This includes (but is not limited to) GETAs earned at other institutions via cross registration, while on Leave of Absence, or during summer or winter sessions of an academic year during which the student is an active UB student. UB students transferring to other SUNY schools will be awarded a SUNY GETA as follows: • • • •

Communication Literacy 1 fulfills Basic Communication. Math and Quantitative Reasoning fulfills Mathematics. The first lecture course for Scientific Literacy and Inquiry fulfills Natural Sciences. Pathways and Diversity Learning courses fulfill American History, Arts, Foreign Language, Humanities, Other World Civilizations, Social Sciences, and/or Western Civilization.

University at Buffalo Financial Responsibility Statement A student accepts financial obligation when he or she enrolls for classes at the University at Buffalo. Ensuring that students understand the financial commitment they are making when they register for courses is an important component of a student’s financial literacy. Method of Billing The University at Buffalo uses electronic billing (eBill) as its official billing method, and therefore the student is responsible for viewing and paying the student account eBill by the scheduled due date. Failure to review the eBill does not constitute a valid reason for not paying the bill on time. Learn More About Billing Billing Errors Administrative, clerical or technical billing errors do not absolve the student of the financial responsibility to pay the correct amount of tuition, fees and other associated financial obligations assessed as a result of registration at the University at Buffalo. Payment of Fees Registration for any class at the University at Buffalo incurs full responsibility to pay all tuition, fees and other associated costs assessed as a result of registration. Students must drop any courses before the semester starts or during the first week of classes to remove all tuition liability. Non-attendance in classes will not remove financial liability. Dropping or Withdrawing From Courses Students may be responsible for partial or full tuition and fee liability when dropping courses. If a student wishes to drop a course, or formally withdraw from the University, he or she must login to the MyUB student portal and drop their course(s) and follow all withdrawal procedures. Non-attendance of course(s) for which the student is registered does not constitute a withdrawal from the course(s). Enrollment changes may impact the student’s financial aid. Online information is available regarding the tuition liability schedule and withdrawal procedures and financial aid information.

Financial Hold If the student fails to pay their student account bill or any monies due to the University at Buffalo by the scheduled due date, the University at Buffalo will place a financial hold (BIL) on the student account, preventing registration for future classes, requesting transcripts, or receiving a diploma. Late Payment Charge If the student fails to pay the student account bill or any monies due to the University at Buffalo by the scheduled due date, the University at Buffalo will assess an administrative and/or late payment fee per billing cycle on the past due portion of the student account until the past due account is paid in full. Returned Payments If a payment made to the student account is returned by the bank for any reason, the student must repay the original amount of the payment. The student account will be assessed a returned check/credit card fee of $20.00 in addition to a late payment fee. Loss of Anticipated Aid If the student becomes ineligible for an award and he/she no longer has actual or estimated anticipated aid on their student account, the outstanding charges become immediately due. Do not wait for a revised eBill as failure to pay may result in late payment fees and registration holds. The student must view their current account activity in his/her HUB Student Center via MyUB. In the Student Center under the Finances section, click on the ‘Payment Options’ link, then click on the ‘View Accounts’ menu option. Returned Financial Aid Students are responsible for repaying the university any funds that were returned on their behalf to the financial aid program(s) for which they may have lost eligibility. There are various reasons that this might occur, particularly with federal regulations surrounding attendance, academic progress, overpayment, or withdrawal. Collection Policy and Fees Students with an unpaid balance on the student account at the end of the semester could be subject to additional collection activity. The University may refer the delinquent account to a a p - a d v i s i n g @ b u f f a l o . e d u | 43


collection agency and/or the New York State Attorney General’s Office. Students are responsible for paying the collection agency fee of up to 22% and the assessment of additional interest and fees that may be added to the outstanding account balances referred to collection. IRS Form 1098-T Tuition Statement Students are to provide a Social Security number (SSN) or taxpayer identification number (ITIN) to the University at Buffalo upon request as required by Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations for Form 1098-T reporting purposes. Failure to provide the SSN or ITIN could result in the student being responsible for payment of any and all IRS fines assessed as a result of the missing SSN-ITIN. University at Buffalo Student Financial Agreement I understand that when I register, or a university-designee who registers on my behalf, for any class at the University at Buffalo or receive any service from the University at Buffalo, I accept full responsibility to pay all tuition, fees and other associated costs assessed as a result of my registration and/or receipt of services. I further understand and agree that my registration and acceptance of these terms constitutes a promise to pay for all assessed tuition, fees and other associated costs by the published or assigned due date. I understand that administrative, clerical or technical billing errors do not absolve me of my financial responsibility to pay the correct amount of tuition, fees and other associated financial obligations assessed as a result of my registration at the University at Buffalo

University at Buffalo Student Responsibility Statement The university is committed to the ideal of flexibility and diversity in the educational experience. Certain regulatory procedures are necessary, however, to ensure that the complex needs of a large student body in search of diverse educational goals are met efficiently and smoothly. Students are advised to familiarize themselves with the following details in order to avoid any difficulties along their chosen path to the baccalaureate degree. By accepting responsibility for their education, students enhance the development of their academic, social and career goals. As a condition of enrollment, students are responsible for reviewing, understanding, and abiding by the university’s regulations, procedures, requirements and deadlines as described in official publications, including the university’s undergraduate catalog, UB websites, and official university email communications.
