Undergraduate Admissions

At Cornell AAP, we teach and practice architecture, fine arts, and city and regional planning to build a more sustainable, just, and resilient world.

AAP's Office of Admissions helps prospective first-year students, transfer applicants, and their families explore programs in architecture, art, and planning. We provide information about the college, the undergraduate application process, admissions requirements, and deadlines.
