    The University of Notre Dame, founded in 1842 by the Congregation of Holy Cross, is an independent, national Catholic university located in Notre Dame, Indiana. Any student admitted as an undergraduate to the University of Notre Dame may declare an architecture major. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions regulates all undergraduate admissions to the University. Freshmen are encouraged to enter the five-year program to begin the challenging curriculum as early as possible. The first year of the program is an introduction to architecture and drawing skills in addition to the universal first-year requirements.

     Typical first-semester schedule :

    1. Writing and Rhetoric or University Seminar
    2. MATH 
    3. PHYS 
    4. University Requirement/Elective
    5. Architecture 

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.


    Admissions must have all of the following before beginning the application review. Descriptions of these items are below.  

    1. A completed Common Application AND the Notre Dame supplement
    2. A completed International Student Certification of Finances plus financial documentation verifying the totals on the Certification of Finances
    3. An official transcript or record of academic achievement in secondary school
    4. Official results of the SAT I: Reasoning Test or the ACT Assessment
    5. Official results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) min score-100 or the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) min score- 7,5, if applicable
    6. A letter of evaluation from a teacher, headmaster, or counselor
    7. A $75 non-refundable application fee
    8. A copy of your passport
    9. A completed CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE if applying for need-based financial aid

    Need-Based Financial Aid

    Prospective first year students wishing to be considered for limited need-based financial assistance must first complete anInternational Student Certification of Finances along with the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE adapted for international students. Both documents are due at the time of application.International students seeking financial aid must apply during the admissions process. All international students that are admitted without financial aid are expected to fully fund their studies.  Financial aid is not available in later years. If you think that you will need financial aid at any point during your studies, you should apply for financial aid at the time of your application.
