Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

First-time college student applicants to the undergraduate program in electrical and computer engineering, civil or mechanical engineering will be admitted if they obtain:

An ACT mathematics score of at least 25 and
An ACT composite score of at least 24 or
a high school class rank in the upper 25 percent.
First-time college student applicants who do not meet the above criteria but do meet UMKC general admission requirements may be individually reviewed by a undergraduate program committee for admission to the School.
