MLA Application Requirements

All MLA applicants are expected to apply under the “prospective candidate for a degree” admission category. All admitted students enter in the fall semester.

All applicants are required to submit the following by December 31:

Applicants from foreign countries where English is not the native language are required in addition to submit TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) scores or the IELTS.

Applicants with prior training or experience in landscape architecture or another design field must submit a design portfolio. There are no restrictions on portfolio format; we request only that material be neat and easy to read. Slides and digital portfoilios are discouraged. If you wish us to return the portfolio by mail, you must enclose an appropriately stamped, self-addressed envelope.

Application forms, instructions, and fee payment are found at the Graduate School admissions website. As part of the online application, you will need to furnish complete email address information for recommenders for three letters of recommendation.  The link for the form will be electronically sent to your recommender while completing the online application.

Official transcripts from all institutions, and test scores are sent to:
