Admission Guidelines for Current UConn Students

 

 

Your admission to the School of Engineering is based on space availability in the desired major and your academic performance as indicated by your cumulative grade point average (cGPA) during the time of review. Your application will be reviewed in comparison to others who apply, to your targeted major, in the same semester as you.

Applications are only accepted online. The site is: request.engr.uconn.edu. Applications are only reviewed twice a year – in January and June.

  • To be considered for spring admission, you must enter your application in the request system by December 25th.
  • To be considered for fall admission, you must enter your application in the request system by May 25th.

You will be notified of your admission status through your UConn email address. You may only have one active application in our system at a time, but you can reapply for future admissions reviews if originally denied admissions to your desired major. You are able to include a first and second choice major request in one application.

MINIMUM ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR NON-SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING STUDENTS (for all majors except Management & Engineering for Manufacturing: MEM)

  • Enrollment in, or completion of a Lab Science related to major (Example: CHEM 1127Q) and MATH 1131Q or beyond at UCONN
  • Grade of a C or better in most recent STEM classes
  • 2.7 cGPA
  • Full time status at time of application (12 credits or more) or a minimum of two part time semesters
  • Course withdrawals in the semester applying can negatively impact the chance for admissions that semester
  • CS/CSE/CompE applicants must be enrolled in, or completed CSE 1010

 Note: AP credits and transfer credits are not taken into consideration during the admission review.

  • Have completed one of the following: ACCT 2001, ECON 1200, ECON 1201, ECON 1202, STAT 1000Q, STAT 1100Q.

 

Note: AP credits and transfer credits are not taken into consideration during the admission review.

MINIMUM ELGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR CURRENT SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING STUDENTS

To be considered for a major change, you must be in good academic standing for the School of Engineering. Admission will still be based on space availability in your desired major, in the semester you apply.

MORE DESIRED ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE FOR SPACE CONSTRAINED MAJORS   

(The following varies by semester and are not a guarantee of admission. You are encouraged to apply if you meet the above stated minimums.)

  • Computing Majors (CS/CSE/CompE): Previous semester review standard was an average 3.4 cGPA, ideally B’s or better in CSE and Math coursework, CSE 1010 required.
  • Mechanical Engineering: Previous semester review standard was a minimum 3.3 cGPA, ideally B’s or better in STEM coursework, and no STEM grades lower than a C.
  • MEM: Previous semester review standard was a minimum 2.79 cGPA plus other minimum requirements noted on mem.uconn.edu.
