Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Official transcripts and completion certificates (photocopies are not acceptable).

Some programs require letters of recommendation.

Specifically for Master's Programs:

A minimum of 2.75-3.00 undergraduate grade point average depending on the program.

The GRE General section is required if one or more of the following conditions is true:
- The undergraduate degree was awarded by a college or university outside of the United States or Canada (and Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, or the United Kingdom for admission in Chemical Engineering or Biomedical Engineering), or by a Canadian institution not accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers.
- An unaccredited college or university awarded the undergraduate degree.
- The student’s undergraduate cumulative grade-point average is below a minimum required by the program.
- The year of the baccalaureate degree precedes the date of application to the College of Graduate Studies by more than six years; however, in this case, the examination requirement may be waived, with program approval, if the applicant’s undergraduate grade-point average is below the minimum required by the program.

The minimum scores required for the Quantitative section and for the Analytical Writing section vary depending on the specific program.

Specifically for Doctoral Programs:

The applicant should hold a bachelor's or master's degree with at least one degree in engineering. In exceptional cases, applicants may be considered without an engineering degree if they have a strong foundation in math and science. Minimum grade-point averages of 3.00 at the bachelor's and 3.25 at the master's level are required.

The GRE General section is required of all applicants. Minimum scores at the 80th percentile on the Quantitative section and 3.5 on the Analytical Writing section are usually required depending on the specialization area.

Two letters of recommendation from individuals familiar with the student's previous academic work are required. Applicants are required to submit a two-page personal statement of their research interests.


If an English language proficiency examination is required, then a TOEFL score of at least 550 on the paper-based exam, 78 on the internet exam (including at least 20 in reading, 21 in listening, 17 in writing, and 20 in speaking), 6.0 on the IELTS exam, 5.0 on the iTEP exam, or 213 on the computer-based exam, is required. Students who do not satisfy these requirements but who do satisfy the University's TOEFL requirements, will be tested upon arrival at CSU by the English as a Second Language Program. Depending on test results, students may be required to take a writing (ESL 502) and/or speaking (ESL 503) course.

Please check with each Engineering program for specific admission requirements.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Official transcripts and official completion certificates; some programs require recommendation letters; GRE test scores required if department-specific conditions are not met; proof of having met at least one of the English language proficiency requirements as outlined by the University and the specific program.

For some Master's Programs: Completion of a Preparatory Program for students without the necessary undergraduate background in the specific discipline.

Please check with each Engineering program for specific admission requirements.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Students must meet all of the following minimum requirements:

Transcripts of academic work and degree certificates from each college/university attended. All school records should be submitted in the original language and should be accompanied by a certified English translation.

Proof of having met at least one of the English language proficiency requirements. CSU offers students the following choices to prove English language proficiency:

- Meet minimum test score requirements:
A TOEFL score of at least 550 on the paper-based exam, 78 on the internet exam (including at least 20 in reading, 21 in listening, 17 in writing, and 20 in speaking), 6.0 on the IELTS exam, 5.0 on the iTEP exam, or 213 on the computer-based exam, is required. Students who do not satisfy these requirements but who do satisfy the University's TOEFL requirements, will be tested upon arrival at CSU by the English as a Second Language Program. Depending on test results, students may be required to take a writing (ESL 502) and/or speaking (ESL 503) course.

- Successful completion of CSU's IELP (Intensive English Language Program) Advanced Level, with a grade of 80% or better (www.csuohio.edu/ce/ielp/).

- Completion of English language studies (Level 112) from any ELS Language Center (www.els.com).

- Graduated from a secondary school or accredited college/university in the US or from one of the TOEFL exempted countries.

Official score report of the GRE if required by your department. The academic program has the option of requiring additional test requirements from applicants. Please check your academic department's requirements.

Letters of recommendation are required for most programs, but not all. Please check your specific program's requirements by reviewing the minimum admissions requirements by program.

Meet financial verification requirements.

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.
