In addition to the required coursework for their intended department below, students must also be in good academic standing in order to be accepted.
Admission is competitive and based on the capacity of the department.
If You Are an FYE or in Undeclared Status:
Students admitted to the College of Engineering as a First-Year Engineering (FYE) or Undeclared may apply to their intended degree program upon completion of the foundational curriculum (see “Required Coursework for Department Admission” below). Upon completion of intended department curriculum, students may apply for entrance to a degree program.
Required Coursework for Department Admission
Each department has specific required courses that must be completed before consideration for admission.
Admittance to Information Technology follows the standard MU admissions requirements.
60-Credit Hour Rule
To remain in the College of Engineering, students must be admitted to an Engineering degree program by the end of the semester when their total credit hours earned are equal to or greater than 60. Students not admitted by 60 credit hours will become ineligible to remain in the College of Engineering and must transfer to another MU school or college in order to remain a student at the University of Missouri. Transfer students who enter the College of Engineering with 60 or greater credit hours will be given one semester to gain admittance to a degree program. If not admitted to a degree program after one semester, they will become ineligible to remain in the College of Engineering. If more than one semester is needed to complete the courses required to enter a degree program, a waiver may be granted at the discretion of the college. If students are pre-enrolled for the following term at the time they become ineligible to remain in the College of Engineering, all Engineering courses will be administratively dropped.
