Fall Quarter Design Studio 

  • All students register for ARCH 341 and ARCH 351 during 1st round registration rotation.
    • Enroll in ARCH 341 which will be the same section number as your chosen ARCH 351 Professor.
  • If you have last rotation and there are no seats available (all sections show “Closed”) then you may submit a Design Studio Request Form which can be found in the main page of the Architecture website at architecture.calpoly.edu.
    • The design request form is only for those who are unable to register for a design studio due to all sections being closed.
    • Any form submitted that is out of compliance will be denied.  Such as submitting form when there were open sections during your registration rotation and/or purposely not registering for ARCH 341/ARCH 351.
    • The department closely monitors all areas of your registration.
  • Be sure you have no holds on your student account.  This will hinder your ability to register into any course.
  • Prerequisite registration issues (if you do not meet the prerequisites for ARCH 341 or ARCH 351):

    • Email Arlene Gomez, agomez25@calpoly.edu with the subject line of NEED permission for ARCH 341/351 Prerequisite issue.  Please note that the permission number is only good for an open section at the time of your registration.  If the status of section is closed at the time you register, you will need to obtain another open permission number.

For registration assistance contact:  Arlene Gomez, Architecture Department, agomez25@calpoly.edu.

Winter/Spring Two Quarter Design Studio

Early Fall Quarter, students will be asked to rank their instructor preferences for the two-quarter 3rd year studio. Enrollment will be based on placement.
