Entrance Requirements and Recommendations

Requirements

We utilize a comprehensive review that has been developed by our faculty that combines the academic variables deemed important and relevant to our curriculum, and other non-cognitive variables that have been guided under the auspices of Title 5, trustee policy, federal, state laws and the campus to screen, score and select students for admissions.

New student admission is then determined by the number of predicted openings by level and by major, and these vary from year to year. With almost 50,000 annual applicants and less than 5000 spaces, this requires us to tactically manage our enrollment down to the major and program level.

The info brief titled "Fall 2015 Fact Book" located at http://ir.calpoly.edu/content/publications_reports/factbook/index provides the published criteria on admissions.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Engineering and computer science at Cal Poly are strongly oriented toward preparing students for immediate entry into professional practice upon graduation from one of the bachelor's degree programs. Each student selects a major at entrance and generally takes at least one course in that major each quarter. This early introduction increases motivation to master the mathematics, basic science, and engineering science or computer science which constitute a very important foundation for each curriculum.

A leader in engineering education, the College of Engineering promotes "project-based learning" to link theory with hands-on practice. Graduates are well prepared to enter graduate school or the engineering profession. In fact, Cal Poly engineers are highly sought by industry because they are known to "have two feet on the ground and two hands on the problem." Thus, our 'learn by doing' philosophy is emphasized in the curricula by the large number of design-centered laboratories, integrating design throughout the curricula, and the senior project capstone design experience.

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

We utilize a comprehensive review that has been developed by our faculty that combines the academic variables deemed important and relevant to our curriculum, and other non-cognitive variables that have been guided under the auspices of Title 5, trustee policy, federal, state laws and the campus to screen, score and select students for admissions.

New student admission is then determined by the number of predicted openings by level and by major, and these vary from year to year. With over 55,000 annual applicants and less than 5000 spaces, this requires us to tactically manage our enrollment down to the major and program level.

The info brief titled "Fall 2015 Fact Book" located at http://ir.calpoly.edu/content/publications_reports/factbook/index provides the published criteria on admissions.

Evidence demonstrating intent may vary from case to case but will include, and is not limited to, the absence of residential ties to any other state, California voter registration and voting in California elections, maintaining California registration and driver's license, maintaining active California bank accounts, filing California income tax returns and listing a California address on federal tax returns, owning residential property or occupying or renting an apartment where permanent belongings are kept, maintaining active memberships in California professional or social organizations, and maintaining a permanent military address and home of record in California.

The general rule is that a student must have been a California resident for at least one year immediately preceding the residence determination date in order to qualify as a 'resident student' for tuition purposes. A residence determination date is set for each academic term and are as follows: Fall - September 20, Winter - January 5, Spring - April 1, Summer - July 1. Non-resident students pay fees PLUS $248 per unit non-resident tuition.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
