Handbooks & Forms-School of Architecture - Carnegie Mellon University

The School of Architecture Handbook is a guide to SoArch rules, policies, and procedures. It is designed to give answers to common questions about the school, its curriculum, the university, and your role as a student in the Bachelors, Masters, or Doctoral degree program.

For additional information or clarification, you may consult with SoArch staff, faculty, and other university personnel.

We ask that all students familiarize themselves with the contents of the handbook. A new edition is issued every year to ensure accuracy. Changes to any policies will be communicated to all students as they occur. For this reason, it is mandatory that students regularly check the weekly SoArch newsletter, their CMU email accounts, and individual mailboxes located in CFA 200. Students must also be familiar with the policies laid out in the CMU Student Handbook, The Word.

All handbooks are subject to change. New handbooks become effective on the start date of the fall semester. The 2014-2015 graduate student handbook will be available soon.
