Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

All new engineering students are first admitted to the Pre-Professional school program regardless of the number of credit hours completed.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

A minimum acceptable level of competence for the purpose of admission to Professional School is required. The majority of academic units specify a minimum GPA requirement for technical courses, coursework completed at OSU and technical coursework completed at OSU. Specific requirements for admission to each Professional School vary across academic units and are defined in the university catalog.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

International students are required to meet academic performance standards which are equivalent to those established for all domestic applicants; however, freshman students are not required to participate in the ACT or SAT. All new applicants for undergraduate study for whom English is a second language are required to present either a minimum paper-based score of 500, a minimum computer-based score of 173 or a minimum Internet-based score of 61 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), or a minimum score of 6.0 on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), taken within the last two years.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Non-resident students must meet the same criteria as residents of Oklahoma for admission to OSU.

Residency Requirements

Students must earn at least 30 semester credit hours at OSU. At least 15 of the final 30 hours applied toward the degree or at least fifty percent of the upper-division hours required by OSU in the major field must be satisfactorily completed at OSU. Prior approval by the academic dean is required.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

For the purpose of determining admission to OSU, a transfer student is one who has earned a minimum of seven or more semester hours of college-level credit after graduation from high school. Transfer admission requirements are as follows: 1) Students who have earned between 7-23 hours of college credit must satisfy both freshman admission requirements and achieve a minimum transfer GPA of 2.25 or higher in all college-level course work attempted. 2) Students who have earned 24-59 hours of college credit must achieve a minimum transfer GPA of 2.25 or higher in all college-level course work attempted. 3) Students who have earned 60 or more hours of college credit must achieve a minimum transfer GPA of 2.00 or higher in all college-level course work attempted. Students are admitted to pre-professional school until they meet the requirements for admission to one of the professional schools.

A two-year community junior college where they were full-time students: 138
A four-year college or university where they were full-time students: 53
