College of Engineering Technology Admissions Criteria

Admission is open to high school graduates who demonstrate the academic preparedness, maturity, and seriousness of purpose with backgrounds
appropriate to their chosen program of studies. The admission criteria for FTIACs (first time in any college) are as follows:

(1) Meet program standard of minimum ACT composite score of 18 or SAT 950 and high school GPA of 2.75 (2.5 " 2.74 to be reviewed at the college level). See program requirements below.

OR

(2) Meet the program standard of a minimum ACT composite score of 17 or SAT 910 and a minimum high school GPA of 2.50.

AND (3) or (4), below

(3) Meet department admissions standards as outlined on this criteria sheet to be admitted to a specific degree program.

(4) Be admitted as a program pre-technical student until the program specific requirements of (3) above are met, at which time admission to the degree program will be granted.

Internal and external University transfer applicants for AAS programs who meet math level requirements, but have less than a program specific GPA Requirement, are to be referred to the College Dean’s Office.
