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 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.
