Entrance Requirements and Recommendations

Requirements

Automatic Admission is granted to high school graduates entering as freshmen and transfer students with less than 24 semester hours of transferable credit, whose ACT and GPA scores correspond with our Admission Chart. In addition, you must meet the high school core requirements - English (4 units), Math (3 units of Algebra I or above), Lab Science (3 units), Social Studies (3 units).

Admission Chart
ACT & SAT Score Range H.S. GPA Range
18-36 ACT / 860-1600 SAT 3.50 " 4.00
19-36 ACT / 900-1600 SAT 3.00 " 4.00
20-36 ACT / 940-1600 SAT 2.75 " 4.00
21-36 ACT / 980-1600 SAT 2.50 " 4.00
22-36 ACT / 1020-1600 SAT 2.25 " 4.00

SAT and ACT scores considered for UND admission, consist only of the math and verbal sections. The writing section is not measured on either test.

You should still apply for admission even if your GPA or ACT don't meet automatic admission standards. Your application will be reviewed by a committee that will look at all relevant information to make their admission decision.

Students over 25 aren't required to submit an ACT or SAT score.

Recommendations

Below is the least of courses at the secondary level which are
required for admission:
• Four units of English, including the development of written and oral skills;
• Three units of Mathematics, including Algebra I and above;
• Three units of Laboratory Science, including at least one unit each
in two or more of the following courses: biology, chemistry, physics,
or physical science;
• Three units of Social Studies, excluding consumer education, cooperative
marketing, orientation to social science, and marriage and family.
The Student Academic Standards Committee may deny applicants
who meet the core curriculum requirements but are evaluated to
be high risk candidates for success at UND due to a low ACT
composite score or a low SAT combined score, and/or a low
grade point average.

topic simply follow campus admission policies.
A student is admitted to a professional engineering degree program
through a formal admission process conducted when the student
is completing the second year of engineering study and prior to
being allowed to take upper division engineering courses. Only students
admitted to a professional engineering degree program will be
eligible to receive engineering degrees.
Engineering Degree Program Admission Standards. All of
the professional engineering degree programs require that the following
conditions be met prior to admission:
(1) A minimum grade of C must be earned in each of the following
foundation courses:

Calculus 12 Math 165 and 166 and 265
General Physics 8 Phys 251 and 252
(calculus-based)
An additional science course which may be prescribed by each
admitting department.
At least four engineering science courses or acceptable equivalents
prescribed by each admitting department.
(2) A GPA of at least 2.00 must be maintained in all engineering
courses taken to date.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

International students applying for undergraduate admission
and all students whose first language is not English are required to
earn a score of at least 195 computer-based, 525 written-based, or 71

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Admission Requirements
a) Bachelor of Science degree in an ABET accredited engineering program in Environmental, Chemical, Civil, or Geological Engineering.
b) Students holding a B.S. degree in other engineering disciplines or in a science field may be admitted to Qualified Status with an obligation to acquire background undergraduate engineering knowledge. The exact requirements will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
c) Graduate Record Examination General Test for applicants from non-ABET accredited programs.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Applicants with strong academic backgrounds who possess four-year bachelor's degrees from accredited U.S. institutions or equivalent from a recognized foreign institution may apply for admission.

It is strongly recommended that the application be completed three months prior to the term in which the applicant wishes to matriculate.

In general, the following guidelines indicate the level of preparation expected of all applicants for admission to UND:

India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal: 1st Class Bachelor's degree in engineering or medicine with a minimum of four years of study; master's degree in all other fields
Other Asian countries: Bachelor's degree requiring a minimum of four years of study
British or British-patterned education: Bachelor's degree with honours with a minimum of four years of study
French or French-patterned education: Diplome with a minimum of four years of post-baccalaureate study
Other European, Latin American, Middle Eastern countries or Canada: University degree requiring a minimum of four years of study
Three-year Bologna degrees from countries within the European Union will be considered on an individual basis. Three-year degrees from other countries may also be considered. Applicants may be requested to provide a World Education Services transcript evaluation in addition to official transcripts from their university.

International students are required to submit a certification of finances to the Graduate School after an offer of admission has been made. Approximately $24,000 annually is required for educational and living expenses.

Applicants admitted to a graduate program will be issued an I-20 Form after all required documentation has been submitted.

You may be accepted into a doctoral program at the University of North Dakota only if you have received your master's degree from an accredited U.S. college or university (or equivalent in Canada). Exceptions to this rule apply to departmental programs which offer direct admission into a Doctoral program, such as Anatomy, Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, Counseling Psychology, Pharmacology/ Physiology, and Physics.

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.
