General Admissions

Entrance Requirements and Recommendations

Requirements

To be admitted as a first-time freshman, the applicant must present a transcript showing graduation from high school or GED, and the score and percentile achieved on the ACT or SAT. Home schooled students will be admitted using the same criteria. However, home schooled students seeking Federal Financial Aid will be required to sumbit an officially recognized high school diploma or equivalent.

To be admitted on regular freshman status, an applicant must have scored at or above 20 on the ACT or 950 SAT test, have a high school cumulative grade-point average at or above 2.5 (excluding remedial course work). In addition to the academic criteria outlined above, an applicant must submit two references: one from a high school counselor or teacher, the other from a church leader (pastor, youth pastor, or Sunday School teacher).

Recommendations

The Admissions Office is responsible for determining the overall "fit" of an applicant with the University. Academic, social, and spiritual factors are considered. It is helpful for the applicant to provide as much relevant information as possible in determining whether there is a good match between the applicant and the University.

Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

The Engineering design experience consists of five objectives designed so the graduate will have experienced the extension of the theoretical aspects of engineering to practical applications through laboratory and computer work and appropriate design activities; Be able to design a system, component, or process to meet desired specifictions; Be able to function on multi-disciplinary teams; Be socially responsible, concerned with public safety, health, and the general well-being of humanity; Be able to communicate effectively. The junior design lab gives the experience of a complete design cycle in a team context. In both senior design courses the student is responsible for the design project from start to completion. Faculty members and industry engineers are available for sugggestions and counsel, but the student must shoulder the responsibility for the results. These capstone course are an excellent transition sequence from the academic environment to the workplace.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The mission of the Division of Engineering and Construction Management is to provide a university education integrating general studies and disciplinary studies to equip students to excel in their chosen field of engineering or construction management.
The faculty of the Division seeks to educate the student in the methods of carefully and logically understanding problems and of designing solutions for those problems. Education within the Division is in the context that �All truth is God�s truth�; therefore, a biblical world- and life-view is the basis for problem-solving procedures. �The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.� (Proverbs 1:7) A low student-faculty ratio within the Division assures interaction between faculty and students on these and other issues.
The curriculum and the co-curriculum prepare the Division graduate to function effectively in advanced technical positions, or to enter graduate studies.

(3) Essay, written by the applicant, explaining the reasons for wanting to attend JBU. (4)Letter of recommendation from the following:(a) Principal (headmaster) of high school, (b) Dean of Students at previous university, (c) Pastor or church leader. (5) Official transcripts of academic records at secondary school or university. (6)For regular freshman status, an applicant must present an examination report of an internationally recognized, standardized test that will be evaluated by the International Admissions Office. (7) Immunization record including date of measles/rubella vaccination. (8) Official documents showing ability to pay college costs, or an Affidavit of Support completed by a US sponsor for $23,500.00 (one year's costs). (9) The International Programs Office is responsible for determining the overall "fit" of an applicant with the university. Academic, social and spiritual factors will be considered. It is helpful for the applicant to provide as much relevant information as possible to determine whether there is a good match between the applicant and JBU.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

TRANSFER STUDENT � To be admitted as a transfer student, the applicant must have been enrolled in college as a full-time student for at least one semester following high school graduation. Each college must send an official transcript directly to John Brown University. A high school transcript and standardized test scores may also be required. Transcripts for all transfer students are subject to academic review prior to acceptance.
