Admissions Criteria

The Benjamin M. Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources accepts students into one of three bachelor's degree tracks, which are based primarily on math preparation. The purpose for having three engineering tracks is to provide a curriculum that is tailored to the level of academic preparation of each student. This maximizes each student's chance for a successful first-year experience.

The Statler College is now offering a bachelor's degree program in biomedical engineering. Enrollment in this program is currently limited to approximately 40 students each year. Enrollment will be based on a number of factors, including college-level GPA. Options for students not admitted to the program include a major in chemical engineering, with completion of the biomedical engineering minor.

Engineering Track 1/Computer Science

The Engineering Track 1/Computer Science track is for students who are ready for college level calculus. Students who start on this track can typically graduate in 4 years.

High School GPA  Math ACT/SAT

3.0

ACT: 28
or
SAT Pre-March 2016: 630
or
SAT March 2016 or later: 650

Engineering Track 2

This track is for students who place into a pre-calculus course. Students who start out on this track can typically graduate in 4 or 4.5 years.

High School GPA  Math ACT/SAT

2.75

ACT: 26
or
SAT Pre-March 2016: 580
or
SAT March 2016 or later: 600

Engineering Track 3

This track is designed for students who place into algebra or pre-algebra and can typically graduate in 5 years.

High School GPA  Math ACT/SAT

2.50

ACT: 22
or
SAT Pre-March 2016: 540
or
SAT March 2016 or later: 570

Admissions will be based on the highest math sub-score submitted (ACT or SAT).

Transfer, dual enrollment, and AP credit may decrease time to graduation.

Admission into a specific engineering discipline after the first year is competitive and dependent on available space in the program.

Transfer Admissions

The Statler College admits transfer students on a case-by-case basis depending on space availability in our programs. While many factors are used in the evaluation process, transfer students must have a 2.50 minimum college-level GPA (cumulative from all institutions), with placement into at least Calculus I.

The College's new program in biomedical engineering is not accepting transfer or second degree students at this time. First-time students are still encouraged to apply.
