Courses at The GSAPP
Some courses at The Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, & Preservation (GSAPP) are open to undergraduate students. Typically, these courses are only recommended for students at an advanced level within the architecture major.
If you are interested in taking a course at The GSAPP, you may follow the instructions below.
Instructions for Registration:
1. The week before the semester starts, check the GSAPP's list of courses available for cross registration (i.e. courses that are potentially open to undergraduate students). Please note that this list typically isn't published until the week before classes begin.
2. After you have selected a course from that list, email the GSAPP instructor and ask them to confirm that they are willing to accommodate an undergraduate student in their class. When you reach out, please request a copy of the syllabus so that you can show it to your architecture major advisor when you meet with them.
3. Make an office hours appointment with your architecture major advisor and request their permission to take the course. Come prepared with a copy of the syllabus so that your advisor can assess how it might count towards your architecture major requirements (if at all).
4. After you have completed steps 1-3, you may proceed with asking to register for the course using the GSAPP's Office of Student Affairs Add/Drop Form.
N.B. If you are a Barnard College student, you should follow up with the Barnard Office of the Registrar after completing steps 1-4 to confirm that you have been successfully enrolled in the course.
If any questions arise, you are welcome to contact your major advisor or The GSAPP Office of Students Affairs directly (firstname.lastname@example.org).
