Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Entering students: (1) must meet University entrance requirements, (2) must have completed at least the prerequisites necessary to enroll in Calculus I (Math 1426) and General Technical Physics (PHYS 1443), (3) present an SAT score of 1200 or higher or a composite ACT score of 27 or higher. Credentials for students who do not qualify for automatic admission are reviewed and considered on individual merits.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Entering Freshmen are advised by the University College, transitioning to their desired department upon successful completion of departmental requirements.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

All prospective students from countries other than the United States who are not immigrants and have not been granted permanent residency must submit: 1) an International Student Application, 2) official transcripts of all previous academic work, 3) standardized test scores when required, 4) the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), 5) evidence of sufficient financial support while studying in this country, if on an F-1 (student) visa and 6) the application processing fee of U.S. $90, which is not refundable.

Residency Requirements

Each candidate for a degree must complete and receive credit in residence for: (a) 25% of the semester credit hours required for a degree, (b) at least 24 of the last 30 semester hours required for a bachelor's degree, (c) at least 18 semester hours of advanced (3000/4000 level) coursework, to include 12 hours of advanced courses in the major subject; successful completion of a course of study prescribed by the major department, including a minimum of 36 advanced hours; minimum overall grade point average of 2.0 (C average), in addition to a 2.0 in the major; no more than 30 of the semester hours required for any degree may be completed by correspondence and/or extension.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer students include those from other units within U.T. Arlington as well as those from other educational institutions. Transfer students from outside U.T. Arlington must furnish an official transcript to the Dean of Engineering and/or department to which they are applying to permit an evaluation of all college level work completed. Transfer students with less than 30 hours of transferable credit are admitted under the criteria for students entering directly from high school (as stated above). Transfer students with 30 hours or more of transferable credit must meet the following requirements: (1) must meet University admission requirements, (2) must have completed at least the prerequisites necessary to enroll in Calculus I (Math 1426) and General Technical Physics (PHYS 1443), and must have the following additional requirements: 1) Have a three-calculation GPA of 3.0 or above (*see note below), calculated on transfer credits which include at least 15 hours of math, science and engineering courses applicable to the degree they are seeking; 2) Comply with the C-grade rule [A grade of D in a freshman or sophomore course indicates unsatisfactory preparation for further engineering education. Any such course in which a D or lower is received must be repeated before enrolling in any course for which it is a prerequisite. This requirement is subject to the Three-Attempt Rule. A student unable to raise his/her grade to at least a C in a freshman or sophomore course within three enrollments (attempts) shall be required to change his/her major to a field outside of the College of Engineering.] Consequently, the student must be prepared to repeat any such courses until a grade of C or higher is obtained prior to enrolling in any course for which such courses are a prerequisite. *NOTE: The College of Engineering uses three GPA calculations to evaluate students for admission and continuation. These calculations employ only the grades received in courses that are applicable to the engineering degree being sought. Any references to a particular three-calculation GPA requirement mean that the student's GPA must meet or exceed the requirement in each of the following three catagories: a) all courses, b) all math, science, and engineering (MSE) courses, and c) all courses, if any, taken in the major subject.

Number of Transfer Students from:

A two-year community junior college where they were full-time students: 616
A four-year college or university where they were full-time students: 177

Official test score reports are those issued by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and sent by ETS directly to the Graduate School; 4) three letters of recommendation.

Residency Requirements

Under Texas state law, an applicant or enrolled student is classified either as a resident of Texas, a nonresident, or as an international student. Residency for admission and tuition purposes at a public college or university in Texas is different from residency for voting or tax purposes.

Introduction
from the Rules and Regulations for Determining Residence Status on the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board website.

An individual seeking information or advice on residence status should contact the residence determination official at the higher education institution of interest. The residence determination official usually can be found in the admissions office, registrar's office, business office, or another similar administrative office of the institution. The Residency Determination Official for UTA's Office can be reached via email (ugresidency@uta.edu) or phone (817.272.6287).

Under state statutes and Coordinating Board rules and regulations interpreting those statutes, a prospective student will be classified as a resident, nonresident, or foreign student. A person who has lived in the state under circumstances specified in these rules will be eligible for classification as a resident.

A citizen, a national, or a permanent resident of the United States who does not meet resident criteria will be classified as a nonresident. An alien who is not a permanent resident of the United States and has not been permitted by Congress to adopt the United States as his/her domicile while in this country will be classified as a foreign student.

An individual classified as a nonresident or foreign student may qualify to pay resident tuition rates and other charges while continuing to be classified as a nonresident or foreign student under certain exceptions specified in the statutes and rules.

Tuition exceptions are listed in catalog.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

No more than nine hours of equivalent course work completed at other institutions of recognized standing may be transferred to a master's degree program, and then only after evaluation and approval by the appropriate Committee on Graduate Studies and the Dean of Graduate Studies. Transfer work is not accepted in doctoral programs; however, formal graduate-level course work completed in the student's major area of doctoral study at other institutions granting doctoral degrees in the student's major may serve to establish the student's compentency in those subject areas and may provide a basis for waiving some U.T. Arlington course requirements. Such waivers must be shown on the Program of Work, recommended by the student's advisory committee, and approved by the Committee on Graduate Studies of the student's major and by the Dean of Graduate Studies.

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.
