General Admissions

Entrance Requirements and Recommendations

Requirements

A student must be admitted to both the University and the College of Engineering. For University admission, one must be a graduate of a recognized high school. Graduates of non-recognized high schools may be admitted by an entrance examination. A student who has not completed high school may be considered for admission by completing the GED test. New freshmen are considered for admission on the basis of a combination of class rank and test scores (ACT). In addition, students entering the University are required to have completed selected high school courses to qualify for unconditional admission.

Subsequent admission to the College of Engineering is selective and competitive, and it is based on an individual review of each application; emphasis is placed on ACT composite scores and math sub-scores, class ranking, and course work and test scores in mathematics. Criteria used for admission to the College of Engineering may be above and beyond the University's standards for general admission. These criteria recognize that SIUC engineering and technology students are an exceptional and committed group. Success in College programs demands academic dedication, personal discipline, and sufficient preparation at the high-school level.

Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Freshman admission to the University can be granted in one of three ways:
1. ACT composite score (or equivalent SAT score) at the 66th percentile, or above, and class rank in the top three quarters, or
2. ACT composite score (or equivalent SAT score) at the 50th percentile, or above, and class rank in the top half, or
3. ACT composite score (or equivalent SAT score) at the 33rd percentile, or above, and class rank in the top quarter.
All other applicants who meet the course pattern requirements will be reviewed to determine potential admissibility.

Subsequent admission to the College of Engineering is selective and competitive, and it is based on an individual review of each application; emphasis is placed on ACT composite scores and math sub-scores, class ranking, and course work and test scores in mathematics. Criteria used for admission to the College of Engineering may be above and beyond the University's standards for general admission. These criteria recognize that SIUC engineering and technology students are an exceptional and committed group. Success in College programs demands academic dedication, personal discipline, and sufficient preparation at the high-school level.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Admission to a department is the same as that for College admission.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

In general, international students must meet the same academic standards for admission as those required of domestic students. As there is considerable variation between educational systems throughout the world, precise comparative standards are not always available. Therefore, international students are considered for admission on the basis of their former academic work, English proficiency, and evidence of adequate financial resources.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Entrance requirements for non-resident students are the same as those for resident students.

Residency Requirements

Each student must complete the residence requirement by taking the last year, defined as 30 semester hours, or by having three years of credit, defined as 90 semester hours, at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Requirements for Admission for Transfer Students:
1. Graduation from a recognized high school or satisfactory completion of the General Educational Development Test.
2. An overall C average from all post-secondary institutions.
3. Eligible to continue enrollment at the last post-secondary institution attended.

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.

Other Student Support Programs

Engineering Residential College: The College reserves three residence halls for engineering students only. Faculty Associates and undergraduate peer mentors work with students at these halls to enhance academic performance. These students are also blocked in common course sections to encourage more cohesive study groups.

Supplemental Instruction Program: Students in engineering designated sections of math classes are provided with the opportunity to stay in the classroom after lectures to form study groups and work on problems related to lecture. The passing rates and grades of participants are higher than those of non-participating students.

Freshmen Orientation Program: In this three-day program, first-year students receive information about various engineering disciplines, resources available, and classroom expectations. Students also are provided with tips for studying and other key recommendations for success.

Tutoring Program: Advanced undergraduate students provide tutoring to freshmen and sophomore students four nights per week in a area central to the residence halls.

Summer Bridge Program: This program prepares freshmen to face the academic rigors of the engineering major and allows time to improve mathematics skills. Students enroll in two summer workshops and live on campus.

Admissions/Transfers

Admission to Engineering Technology College

Freshman admission to the University can be granted in one of three ways:
1. ACT composite score (or equivalent SAT score) at the 66th percentile, or above, and class rank in the top three quarters, or
2. ACT composite score (or equivalent SAT score) at the 50th percentile, or above, and class rank in the top half, or
3. ACT composite score (or equivalent SAT score) at the 33rd percentile, or above, and class rank in the top quarter.

Subsequent admission to the College of Engineering is selective and competitive, and it is based on an individual review of each application; emphasis is placed on ACT composite scores and math sub-scores, class ranking, and course work and test scores in mathematics. Criteria used for admission to the College of Engineering may be above and beyond the University's standards for general admission. These criteria recognize that SIUC engineering and technology students are an exceptional and committed group. Success in College programs demands academic dedication, personal discipline, and sufficient preparation at the high-school level.

Admission to an Engineering Technology Department

Admission to the Department is the same as that for the College.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

In general, international students must meet the same academic standards for admission as those required of native students. As there is considerable variation between educational systems throughout the world, precise comparative standards are not always available. Therefore, international students are considered for admission on the basis of their former academic work, English proficiency, and evidence of adequate financial resources.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Entrance requirements for non-resident students are the same as those for resident students.

Residency Requirements

Each student must complete the residence requirement by taking the last year, defined as 30 semester hours, or by having three years of credit, defined as 90 semester hours at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Requirements for Admission for Transfer Students:
1. Graduation from a recognized high school or satisfactory completion of the General Educational Development Test.
2. An overall C average from all post-secondary institutions.
3. Eligibile to continue enrollment at the last post-secondary institution attended.

Number of Transfer Students from:

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