Students who do not meet the criteria to be directly admitted into the College of Engineering can go through the pre-engineering program.
During the program
- Students follow their major’s course of study and participate in all activities organized by the College.
- They interact closely with their assigned academic advisors.
- They enroll in coursework that will apply to engineering and help them keep their academic options flexible.
- This allows students to select best-fit majors, minors, undergraduate research areas and potential graduate programs.
Pre-engineering students are eligible to transfer into the College of Engineering when they:
- Complete 24 credit hours
- Have at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA
- Have at least a 2.0 GPA for their final semester as a pre-engineering student
- Receive a C- or better in Calculus I (Math 1500)
Once admitted to the College, students will work with a new academic adviser in their chosen program of study until they graduate.
