At the end of the sophomore year, students apply for the Professional Program in their major. Minimum GPA to apply is 2.3 in engineering/math/science courses. However, there is not always room for all applicants in a requested department.

Applicants with at least a 2.0 GPA and fewer than 60 transfer credits may be admitted into the Associate Degree Program.
