Undergraduate

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

In addition the usual preparatory work, applicants to the College of Engineering are expected to have at least two years of algebra, one year of geometry, and one semester of trigonometry or pre-calculus.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

New and transfer students begin their first semester as Pre-Engineering majors in an entering students program within the college. During the semester in which they are enrolled in calculus I (or higher-level math), they petition for change of major to the engineering discipline of their choice.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

The University welcomes applications from qualified international students whose academic backgrounds indicate a high probability of success in desired academic programs. First-year applicants must complete high school preparation, or its equivalent, that would qualify them for admission to recognized universities in their home country.
All admission credentials will be evaluated on the basis of the admission requirements described below. Students who have attended other colleges or universities in the United States or abroad should also refer to the Transfer Admission section of this catalog for additional information about the transferability of credit.

Documents Required. The University must receive complete, official, or school-certified transcript of high school and university work sent directly from each institution attended. If the original documents are in the student’s possession, copies certified by the school, college, university, or U.S. Consulate can be submitted initially, and the originals should be presented to the Office of Admissions and Recruitment for validation when students arrive on campus. All transcripts in languages other than English must be accompanied by certified English translations.

International applicants must submit the following documents to be considered for admission to UTEP:

Application for Admission found at www.applytexas.org
$65.00 application fee paid in U.S. dollars
Satisfactory SAT, ACT, PAA, or TOEFL scores.
Complete, official high school transcript
Complete, official transcripts from EACH college or university attended (for transfer applicants).
International students who have been admitted and wish to apply for a student visa must submit the following documents in order to meet financial certification requirements as set by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services regulations to receive an I-20 Certificate of Eligibility for Non-Immigrant Student Status:

Signed and completed Certification of Financial Resources form
Appropriate documentation verifying source and availability of funds. Acceptable documents include but are not limited to bank statements, scholarship award letters, educational benefits certification from an employer, etc.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

The Office of Admissions and Recruitment is responsible for determining residency status of students for tuition purposes. The Office is guided by the Texas Education Code, the Rules and Regulations for Determining Residence Status of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and University regulations. Under the State of Texas statutes and regulations, a student or prospective student is classified as a resident of Texas, a non-resident, or a foreign student.

.A non-resident student is a citizen, a national or permanent resident of the U.S., or an alien who has been permitted by Congress to adopt the U.S. as his or her domicile while in this country and who has not met the State of Texas requirement for establishing residency for tuition purposes.

While these State of Texas requirements for establishing residency are complex and should be referred to in each particular circumstance, they generally require that an independent individual (18 years of age or older) establish a domicile in Texas and reside in Texas for a period of 12 months prior to the census date of the academic term in which she or he is enrolled. For minors and dependents, the parents or court-appointed legal guardian must have established a domicile and meet the residency requirements. The minor or dependent must be eligible to be claimed by the parent or court-appointed legal guardian on the parents’ or legal guardian’s federal income tax. In accordance with title 19, Texas Administrative Code §21.25, to initially establish residency status students will be required to submit a completed set of Core Residency Questions or supporting documentation, as directed.

An individual can also be classified as a Texas resident if the individual (1) graduated from a public or private high school or received the equivalent of a high school diploma in Texas; (2) resided in Texas for at least three years after graduation from high school or receiving the equivalent of a high school diploma; and (3) continuously resided in Texas for one year prior to the census date of the academic term of enrollment at UTEP. An individual is classified as a Texas resident until he or she establishes a residence outside of the state of Texas.

The following visa holders are eligible to establish a domicile in the United States and have the same privilege of qualifying for Texas residency as U.S. citizens: A-1, A-2, A-3, E-1, E-2, G-1, G-2, G-3, G-4, G-5, H-1B, H-4, dependents of H-1B, I, K-1, K-2, K-3, K-4, L1a, L1b, L-2, NATO 1-7, O-1, O-2, O-3; dependents of O-1, R-1, R-2, V, OP-1, I-551, or I-688/A/B visas that have not expired. For these cardholders to be eligible for resident tuition, residency must be established.

An individual who is classified as a non-resident or foreign student can qualify, under certain exceptions, for resident tuition rates and other charges while continuing to be classified as a non-resident or a foreign student.

Residency Requirements

In general, an individual who is 18 years of age and older who is gainfully employed in Texas for a 12-month term immediately preceding registration is considered a Texas resident. The residence of a minor or dependent is usually that of the parent with whom the individual resides.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer applicants must indicate all institutions attended on the admission application and must submit a complete, official transcript from EACH school attended, regardless of the amount of work completed or the intent to have the credit transferred. Credit earned at institutions not declared on the admissions application cannot be used toward a degree at UTEP. Failure to provide complete information will be considered grounds for denial of admission, denial of transfer credit, cancellation of registration, or appropriate disciplinary action.

The University honors suspension periods imposed by other colleges and universities. An applicant who is ineligible to return to any school previously attended because of suspension or dismissal or whose official records will not be released is not eligible for admission to UTEP until eligible for readmission to the previous institutions or until the official documents have been released. Information regarding the transferability of credit can be found in the ACADEMIC REGULATIONS section of this catalog under "Transfer Credit". Students who have questions concerning UTEP's evaluation of transfer credit should refer to the "Resolution of Transfer Disputes" in that same section.

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

The following documents must be submitted to the Graduate School for consideration for admission into a graduate degree program:
1.Completed application for admission.
2.Application/processing fee.
Note: Application fees are subject to change because of legislative and/or institution action and become effective when enacted.
3.An official transcript, with the four-year baccalaureate degree posted, from the degree-granting institution and copies of transcripts for all other relevant upper-division and graduate work at accredited U.S. institutions or equivalent work and degrees at foreign institutions. The application process can begin with copies of transcripts. Individual programs might have additional requirements. Successful applicants generally have an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher. Programs may have more stringent requirements. Students who apply to receive educational benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs should, in addition to the above requirements, submit copies of transcripts from all other colleges and universities previously attended.
4.For graduates of institutions outside the United States where English is not the first language, a minimum score of 213 (550 on the paper-based exam) on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or a minimum score of 6.5 on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Particular programs might have different minimum score requirements, and in some cases, alternative assessments of English language competency can be considered. Applicants should note that appointment to a graduate assistantship usually requires a score of 250 (600 on the paper"based exam). Official test scores must be sent directly from the testing agency to the Graduate School.
5.Evidence of satisfactory academic achievement and potential. This will usually be assessed by review of performance in upper-division (junior- and senior-level) courses as well as any graduate-level courses completed. Many programs require other evidence of academic performance and promise including interviews, personal statements, and letters of recommendation.
6.Most programs consider results on standardized tests, including the GRE, GMAT, and Miller Analogies Test in making recommendations for admission. Official test scores must be sent directly from the testing agency to the Graduate School. As described in the General Admission Factor section above, programs that consider results on standardized tests will also consider other information regarding the applicant's background.
7.Evidence of adequate subject preparation for the proposed graduate major.
8.Certain programs require students to submit to and satisfactorily complete a background check review as a condition of admission to and/or participation in education experiences. Students who refuse to submit to a background check or who do not pass the background check can be dismissed from the program.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

The Graduate Studies Committee of the proposed graduate major will recommend to the Graduate School acceptance, conditional acceptance, or rejection of the application after all required documents have been received and reviewed by the Graduate School. The Graduate School approves these recommendations and notifies the applicant of the final decision.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

1.Diploma, Provisional Certificate, Carta de Pasante, or Título.
2.One official transcript with final marks or relación de estudios.
3.Statement of adequate financial support is needed to prepare an I-20 non-immigrant visa certification form and a copy of your passport, if applicable, to ensure accuracy of your I-20 documents.
4.Many programs require standardized tests, including GRE and GMAT. Most programs require the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) with a 213 (computer) and 550 (paper-based) score or higher, the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam with a score of 6.5 (For more information on the IELTS exam please click here), or the Pearson Test of English (PTE) exam (For more information on the PTE exam click here). Official test scores must be submitted directly from the testing agency. The University's institutional test code is 6829.
5.In order to take the GMAT, students have to register for it online or by phone by going to the GMAT website at www.MBA.com.
6.Statement of purpose, interviews and letters of recommendation may be required. Refer to the specific program link for requirements and deadlines that pertain to the academic program you have selected.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

The Office of Admissions and Recruitment is responsible for determining residency status of students for tuition purposes. The Office is guided by the Texas Education Code, the Rules and Regulations for Determining Residence Status of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and University regulations. Under the State of Texas statutes and regulations, a student or prospective student is classified as a resident of Texas, a non-resident, or a foreign student.

.A non-resident student is a citizen, a national or permanent resident of the U.S., or an alien who has been permitted by Congress to adopt the U.S. as his or her domicile while in this country and who has not met the State of Texas requirement for establishing residency for tuition purposes.

While these State of Texas requirements for establishing residency are complex and should be referred to in each particular circumstance, they generally require that an independent individual (18 years of age or older) establish a domicile in Texas and reside in Texas for a period of 12 months prior to the census date of the academic term in which she or he is enrolled. For minors and dependents, the parents or court-appointed legal guardian must have established a domicile and meet the residency requirements. The minor or dependent must be eligible to be claimed by the parent or court-appointed legal guardian on the parents’ or legal guardian’s federal income tax. In accordance with title 19, Texas Administrative Code §21.25, to initially establish residency status students will be required to submit a completed set of Core Residency Questions or supporting documentation, as directed.

An individual can also be classified as a Texas resident if the individual (1) graduated from a public or private high school or received the equivalent of a high school diploma in Texas; (2) resided in Texas for at least three years after graduation from high school or receiving the equivalent of a high school diploma; and (3) continuously resided in Texas for one year prior to the census date of the academic term of enrollment at UTEP. An individual is classified as a Texas resident until he or she establishes a residence outside of the state of Texas.

The following visa holders are eligible to establish a domicile in the United States and have the same privilege of qualifying for Texas residency as U.S. citizens: A-1, A-2, A-3, E-1, E-2, G-1, G-2, G-3, G-4, G-5, H-1B, H-4, dependents of H-1B, I, K-1, K-2, K-3, K-4, L1a, L1b, L-2, NATO 1-7, O-1, O-2, O-3; dependents of O-1, R-1, R-2, V, OP-1, I-551, or I-688/A/B visas that have not expired. For these cardholders to be eligible for resident tuition, residency must be established.

An individual who is classified as a non-resident or foreign student can qualify, under certain exceptions, for resident tuition rates and other charges while continuing to be classified as a non-resident or a foreign student.
In general, an individual who is 18 years of age and older who is gainfully employed in Texas for a 12-month term immediately preceding registration is considered a Texas resident. The residence of a minor or dependent is usually that of the parent with whom the individual resides.

Residency Requirements

The Office of Admissions and Recruitment is responsible for determining residency status of students for tuition purposes. The Office is guided by the Texas Education Code, the Rules and Regulations for Determining Residence Status of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and University regulations. Under the state statutes and regulations, a student or prospective student is classified as a resident of Texas, non-resident, or foreign student.

◾A resident is an individual who is either a U.S. citizen, national, permanent resident alien, or an alien who has been permitted by Congress to adopt the U.S. as his or her domicile while in the United States and who has otherwise met the State requirements for establishing residency for tuition purposes.
◾A non-resident is a citizen, national, or permanent resident of the U.S. or an alien who has been permitted by Congress to adopt the U.S. as his or her domicile while in this country and who has not met the State’s requirement for establishing residency for tuition purposes.
◾A foreign student is an alien who is not a permanent resident of the U.S. or has not been permitted by Congress to adopt the U.S. as his/her domicile.


While these State requirements for establishing residency are complex and should be referred to in each particular circumstance, they generally require that an independent individual (18 years of age or older) establish a domicile in Texas and reside in the State for a period of 12 months prior to the census date of the academic term in which the person is enrolled. For minors and dependents, the parents or court-appointed legal guardian must have established a domicile and meet the residency requirements. The minor or dependent must be eligible to be claimed by the parent or court-appointed legal guardian on their federal income tax.

An individual may also be classified as a Texas resident if the individual (1) graduated from a public or private high school or received the equivalent of a high school diploma in Texas; and (2) resided in Texas for at least three years as of the date the person graduated from high school or received the equivalent of a high school diploma; and (3) continuously resided in Texas for one year prior to the census date of the academic term in which the person is enrolled. An individual is classified as a Texas resident until the individual establishes a residence outside of the state of Texas.

The following visa holders are eligible to establish a domicile in the United States and have the same privilege of qualifying for Texas residency as U.S. citizens: A-1, A-2, A-3, E-1, E-2, G-1, G-2, G-3, G-4, G-5, H-1B, H-4, dependents of H-1B, I, K-1, K-2, K-3, K-4, L1a, L1b, L-2, NATO 1-7, O-1, O-2, O-3; dependents of O-1, R-1, R-2, V, OP-1, I-551, or I-688/A/B visas that have not expired. In order for these cardholders to be eligible for resident tuition, residency must be established.

An individual who is classified as a non-resident or foreign student may qualify, under certain exceptions, for resident tuition rates and other charges while continuing to be classified as a non-resident or a foreign student.



Military

Certain military personnel, spouse and dependent children, are eligible to pay resident tuition rates as provided through Texas Education Code Section 54.058 (b)-(c). These provisions provide for nonresident members of the U.S. Armed Forces, members of Texas units of the Army or Air National Guard, or Commissioned Officers of the Public Health Service who are assigned to duty in Texas to pay the resident tuition rate for themselves, their spouses and dependent children. To qualify, the student must submit once a year a statement from an authorized officer in the services, certifying that he or she (or a parent or court-appointed legal guardian) will be assigned to duty in Texas at the time of enrollment and is not a member of the National Guard or Reserves who will be in Texas only to attend training with Texas units.

In addition, Texas Education Code Section 54.058 (d) also provides resident tuition rates for a spouse or dependent child of a member of the Armed Forces of the United States, who is not assigned to duty in Texas but who has previously resided in Texas for a 6 month period if the member has provided at least one year preceding the first day of the term or semester a document with the applicable military service that is in effect on the first day of the semester. The document must indicate the member’s permanent residence address in Texas and designates Texas as the member’s place of legal residence for the purpose of income tax purposes. In addition, the member provides documentation that he or she has been registered to vote in Texas for the entire year preceding the first day of the semester and satisfies at least one of the following requirements: 1) has owned real property in Texas for the entire year preceding the first day of the semester and 2) has had an automobile registered in Texas for the entire year preceding the first day of the semester or at least one year preceding the first day of the semester executed a will that has not been revoked or superseded indicating that the member is a resident of Texas and deposited the will with the county clerk of the county of the member’s residence under Section 71, Texas Probate Code.





Other Exceptions

Waivers of non-resident tuition for non-residents and foreign students are available for
◾Participants in the Academic Common Market
◾Residents of the eight New Mexico counties that border on Texas
◾Recipients of competitive University scholarships of $1,000 or more
◾Students whose families transferred to Texas as part of the State’s plan for economic development

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Except for shared/co-operative programs, the majority of credit for a graduate degree must be taken at the University. For a master's degree, up to fourteen (14) semester hours of graduate work can be transferred from another accredited institution with the approval of the program. Doctoral students are advised to consult their respective doctoral program for information on transfer of credit. All coursework transferred from other accredited institutions requires both the approval of the committee on graduate studies in the student's major area and the Dean of the Graduate School. When such transfer is approved, the student must still meet the residence requirements of two full semesters or the equivalent, and coursework must fall within the six-year time period.
•Only credit hours transfer; grade points earned at other institutions do not transfer.
•Only graduate-level courses can be transferred for credit.
•Only earned credit hours transfer; institutional grade point average does not transfer.
•Courses used to fulfill other degree requirements cannot be transferred.
•Courses for which a grade of C or lower was earned cannot be transferred.
•Correspondence courses are not accepted for graduate credit.

All documents submitted to the University for transfer purposes become part of the official files of the University and cannot be released or returned to the student or to another institution.

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.
