WITC statistics show that 60% are right out of high school, 12% are reverse transfers and 28% are changing careers. The curriculum is very rigorous and demanding.
Students who succeed in this program have prepared themselves for the demanding rigor. They have also researched the program enough to know it's what they want to study. Students can do this by student or job shadowing, talking to others about careers in architecture, or visiting the campus during an open house.
Spending time to make sure financial resources are in place before entering college helps alleviate a little of the worry about paying for college and provides more time for learning. Taking classes like Algebra I & II, Geometry and Trigonometry will help with the math based classes in the program. Any CAD, drafting or construction classes and experience will be valuable as well, but not mandatory. Though students should have basic understanding of computers. Bottom line: be prepared to work hard to become successful in this field.
