Budget and Enrollment Survey

Architecture School Budgets Increase for 2017-18 

Budgets in architecture schools are showing signs of stabilty, according to the results from ACSA’s 2017-18 Budget and Enrollment Survey. Applications and enrollment for architecture programs also appeared stable but vary by degree type.

Survey responses from 71 ACSA member schools in the United States and Canada showed that budgets for travel and discretionary spending were static at most programs. However, schools reported  a decrease in total budgets, the number of schools reporting an increase of more than 6% this year was the second to lowest percentage in the history of the survey. 

Applications and enrollment showed stability across programs. Most notable is the increase in both applications and enrollment for 4-year pre-professional programs for the second year in a row.

The annual survey, now in its eight year, asks schools to identify changes in budgets, enrollment, and applications over the previous year. ACSA members comprise both public and private institutions, primarily in the United States and Canada.


Complete survey results are available here.
