Applying to an Engineering Degree Program
Students admitted to the College of Engineering as Undeclared Engineering must apply to an engineering degree program. The application process is open in the fall and spring semesters (opens October 15 and March 1, respectively).
Students admitted to the College of Engineering in undeclared status will work to complete a foundational curriculum consisting of math, science, and engineering courses. Upon completion of the foundational curriculum students will apply for entrance to a degree program. The specific standards and capacity vary among the degree programs as necessary to align enrollments with educational resources.
Undeclared students should discuss course selection with the academic advisor each semester to keep options open among departmental curricula.
To change colleges or add a major (i.g. from Arts & Sciences to Engineering), complete a Transfer of Division request form.
To transfer from one engineering department to another, students must submit an application to the new department. Admittance to the new department will be based upon the student’s academic performance and departmental capacity. Students who transfer must satisfy the specific degree requirements of the new department.
For undeclared students admitted to the College of Engineering Summer 2014 or after, use this form to apply to a department (e.g. from undeclared to IMSE). Please note, students must be in good academic standing in order to be accepted into a department. Admission is competitive and based on the capacity of the department.
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.
