Upon initial admission to Mississippi State University, all students who indicate an interest in majoring in architecture will be assigned an “undeclared-architecture” major.

Architecture applications are evaluated based on a student’s academic, artistic, and personal qualifications. 

If accepted into the Mississippi State University School of Architecture, a student’s major will be updated to reflect acceptance into the Bachelor of Architecture degree program.

Students not initially accepted into the School of Architecture will remain “undeclared-architecture” majors and will be given the opportunity to reapply to the school (for fall or summer acceptance) after one academic year.
