Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

There are three ways to obtain admission to the School of Engineering:
1. For incoming freshmen, a minimum ACT math score of 20 (or SAT equivalent) is required for admission. Students unable to meet this requirement can take Math 125 or Math 121 & 123 in summer session, with a minimum grade of B in each, to be admitted.
2. New transfer students need to meet either the ACT requirement above, or have completed the math courses equivalent to Math 125 or higher with a minimum grade of B (or Math 261 or higher with a minimum grade of C) and a minimum 2.5 overall GPA, to be admitted. For applicant who already have completed a bachelor's or associate degree, the minimum GPA required for admission is 2.0.
3. Current University of Mississippi students may transfer into the School of Engineering with a 2.0 minimum GPA, but must also meet either the math score requirement (minimum ACT math score of 20 or the SAT equivalent) or must have completed Math 125 or Math 121 & 123 with a minimum B grade (or Math 261 or higher with a minimum grade of C).
Admitting Students with Conditions
1. Transfer students who do not meet the minimum overall 2.0 GPA requirement may petition and be admitted to the university and the School of Engineering on probation. The demonstrated performance and capabilities in mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering subject matter will be determining factors in the approval of their petition. To remove the probation status and be admitted in good standing, they must enroll in and complete at least 12 semester hours of course work with a 2.0 GPA during their first semester at the university.
2. International students who fail to achieve a TOEFL score of 550 (paper) or 80 (internet-based) may apply for admission to the University of Mississippi Intensive English Program. This program is designed for students at the intermediate and advanced levels of English proficiency and not for beginners. Applicants may be admitted to the Intensive English Program in one of the following categories: (1) Admission to an academic program with the provision that the Intensive English course first be successfully completed with acceptable TOEFL results. (2) Admission to the Intensive English Program (IEP) with a review of admission to the academic program after successful completion of English courses. Successful completion of IEP does not guarantee admission to the University of Mississippi.
Admission to Advanced Placement
1. Advanced placement for freshmen and 3 semester hours of credit are awarded in American history, art, biology, calculus, chemistry, classics, computer science, English (literature/composition), European history, French, German, mathematics, music, political science, physics, and Spanish to students who participate in the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) Advanced Placement Program offered through their high schools, and who earn scores of three or higher on the final examinations.
2. International undergraduates who have completed three or more GCE "A" levels in the academic subjects or 15 or more hours of university-level academic courses with a "B" average may be awarded transfer credit and will not be required to take the ACT or SAT.
3. The assistant dean of engineering and the respective engineering department chairs working in consultation are responsible for the evaluation and acceptance of course credit earned at either this institution or elsewhere by students transferring into programs in the School of Engineering. Information relative to course content is obtained from catalog descriptions, curriculum, and course syllabi, and personal interviews with transferring students. The director of international programs is consulted as to the quality and content of international programs in which students have participated. Particular scrutiny is given to the quality and content of engineering courses that students present for possible transfer.
Special Admission Requirements for Entry into the Upper Division
There are no special admission requirements for entry into the "upper division". A formal upper-division distinction for engineering programs is not made. Entry into individual engineering courses (lower- or upper-level) is based on satisfactory completion of prerequisite mathematics, physical science, and other foundation courses.
Admission of Transfer Students to the Engineering Program
1. An overall C average in course work taken at other approved colleges and universities is required for transfer into the School of Engineering. In unusual cases, the rule may be waived with the approval of the appropriate chair and dean of engineering.
2. International students transferring from other colleges and universities must have an overall C average or better in all courses taken.
3. Credits of students transferring from approved U.S. colleges are accepted at their original values for credit toward a degree in engineering, subject to the condition that the last grade received in each subject is C or better. The Office of Admissions and the Office of the Registrar provide each transfer student with an evaluation of the credits acceptable to the university. The dean of the School of Engineering informs the student the extent to which such credits apply toward the degree sought. Acceptance of junior college work is limited to one-half the total requirements for graduation in a given four-year curriculum. Course work completed at international schools, colleges, and universities is carefully evaluated as to its quality and content for equivalency to University of Mississippi courses. Credit is given and recorded on the student's academic record for such equivalent university courses with a grade of Z.
4. The School of Engineering works very closely with community/junior colleges in the state to ensure that articulation problems are eliminated so that students may transfer with a maximum of credit and that content of required courses taken is equivalent to University of Mississippi courses.
5. The School of Engineering currently has a Three-Two Transfer Program in effect with Tougaloo College.

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.
