Cal Poly Pomona's College of Environmental Design is looking for leaders and risk-takers who will create and shape the future of architecture, visual communication design, art history, landscape architecture, urban and regional planning, and regenerative studies. We want those who participate inside and outside of the classroom and aren't afraid to think differently.
By implementing a "learn-by-doing" philosophy, Cal Poly Pomona and the College of Environmental Design provide students with the opportunity to make an impact in their field as soon as they step on our beautiful campus in Los Angeles County. There are endless possibilities to take chances, be leaders, and hit the crowd running on your first day. What makes us different is the belief that the focus should solely be on your improvement everyday.
The College of Environmental Design and its departments do not admit undergraduate students directly. All applicants seeking to enroll in an undergraduate degree offered by the College must complete the process through Cal Poly Pomona's Office of Admissions.

Applicants to the Undergraduate program in Architecture
The B.Arch degree program is considered "impacted" -- that is, many more students apply than can be accommodated each year, and a supplementary admissions process is required by the University and the Department. All candidates must meet regular University admission standards as well as additional standards required by the Department of Architecture.
For further information about requirements for impacted programs, please refer to the University website regarding impacted majors.
Graduate admissions are decided by each of the departments. Requirements, deadlines and instructions may be different for each degree program, but generally it has two components: a main online application that is processed through the University, and a series of additional materials that are sent directly to appropriate department.
