$400 for one week of HiArch

$600 for Week 1 and the Week 2 Model-Making Workshop

The registration fee covers all materials required for projects as well as lunch each day. The School of Architecture does not provide transportation or residency options. 

Week 1 activities will include digital drafting. Students can either bring a personal laptop to use each day during Week 1, or elect to borrow a University computer for program activities. Required hardware information for personal computers is outlined here, and software instructions will be sent out with the Info Packets.

At the end of the program, HiArch participants receive a personalized evaluation from faculty. Participants gain new skills in formal composition and making as well as exposure to architecture practices in Chicago and beyond. HiArch provides a sense of the demands and opportunities unique to an undergraduate architectural education, and participants leave the program with visual work that can be used to supplement college applications.
