Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Freshmen admitted to the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, are eligible to enroll in the College of Engineering. The freshman curriculum stresses a basic foundation in mathematics, physics, and chemistry, which will be required in later years. The sophomore, junior, and senior years are spent in a strong concentration on the student’s chosen field, with emphasis on industrial applications of classroom and laboratory work. By the selection of electives, a student can concentrate in depth in a particular subject, have the flexibility to study several subjects, and minor in an area of interest. Provisions are made for electives in the humanities and social sciences as a means of providing a well-rounded education.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Before being admitted all computer engineering applicants must submit a Test of Spoken English (TSE) score of at least 5.0, or a 7.0 on the spoken section of the IELTS, and an ACT score of 25 (or SAT score of 1140(R)) or above, to be eligible for admission. University admission requirements are used by all other engineering departments.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer Admission Requirements
Applicants who have attended other colleges or universities after high school graduation are considered transfer students. Applicants must submit official transcripts of all previous college courses attempted, whether or not credit was earned and regardless of whether the applicant wishes to transfer any credit to the University of Arkansas. Transcripts from each institution attended should be sent directly to the Office of the Registrar. All transfer students must meet the following requirements:
1. Have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.00 on all course work attempted;
2. Be eligible to return to the last institution attended. Grade-point average is calculated on all coursework attempted.
Students who have completed fewer than 24 transferable semester hours must, in addition to the above requirements, meet all requirements for freshman admission (see Admission of Entering Freshmen). Test scores and transcripts are also evaluated to determine whether State of Arkansas requirements for developmental course placement have been met. (See Registration.) For policies regarding transfer of credit from other institutions, see Academic Regulations.
