Admissions Criteria

In order to be minimally qualified to pursue admission through the Graduate School of Engineering, a candidate must have successfully completed or is in the process of completing an undergraduate bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited U.S. college or university, or its equivalent from a foreign college or university. Any offer of admission is contingent upon a candidate’s successful completion of an undergraduate bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited U.S. college or university, or its equivalent from a foreign college or university.

The applicant will also submit:

  1. Completed online application form. (Paper applications are not accepted.)
  2. Application fee of USD $75 to be paid online by credit card, electronic check, or by money order.
  3. Two confidential letters of recommendation from individuals familiar with technical, professional, and personal qualifications submitted through the online application system.
  4. Transcripts. Applicants should (a) acquire official or unofficial copies of their transcripts from each college or university that they have attended (if they do not already have such copies), (b) create scanned versions of same in PDF format (up to 500 KB in size), and (c) when prompted to do so in the application, upload and attach them to the online application. Ensure that the scanned documents are readable and include all courses, grades, (i.e. marks, scores, etc.) and credits completed to date. The scanned documents should also include information pertaining to the institution’s grading scale. Typically such grading scale information is on the backside of the documents or is on a separate page. This is particularly important for institutions outside of the U.S. If such information is not readily available, please do not be concerned. Also note for institutions outside of the U.S. that only English versions of transcripts are required; and if transcripts are not in English, please arrange to have official English translations made. Translations provided by applicants themselves are not acceptable. Last, note that foreign credential evaluations of transcripts are not required or needed. Note that only above described scanned copies of transcripts attached to the application are needed initially during the admissions review process. Applicants may arrange to mail final, official transcripts to the Graduate School of Engineering after they are admitted, if they are admitted.

  6. Resumé. The resumé is submitted through the online application system.
