*Students who place into a course higher than College Algebra (MAT 1313) on the mathematics placement test may fulfill the University mathematics requirement with either Calculus I (MAT 1613) , Business Calculus I (MAT 1513), or Finite Mathematics (MAT 1333). By itself, Trigonometry (MAT 1323) does not meet this requirement.

The coursework above satisfies much of the general education requirements of the first year of the 5-year professional Bachelor of Architecture curriculum, with the exception of Design 1A (ARC 1536) and Design 1B Studio (ARC 1546) courses. Students must apply to the School of Architecture to complete the remaining years of the BArch degree, which will require 10 semesters of course work. A student may apply for Summer admission to MSU and the School of Architecture to complete the Design 1A and 1B Studio courses during the summer terms, leaving eight semesters of course work to be completed for the BArch. The School of Architecture at MSU offers the only NAAB-accredited professional degree in the state of Mississippi.

At MSU, acceptance of community college work is limited to one-half of the total degree hour requirements for graduation in a given curriculum.
