Current UConn Students
Are you a UConn student — not currently enrolled in the School of Engineering — looking to apply into the School of Engineering? A current School of Engineering student looking to apply for a major change within the school?
OUR ONLINE APPLICATION
If your application is denied — and you have additional questions — you are welcome to contact the Undergraduate Office directly to inquire. Admission into any SoE program is competitive. Space constrained majors (Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Computer Science and Engineering, Computer Engineering and Biomedical Engineering) are most competitive for admission. Decisions are based on GPA and engineering-related coursework, and you will be evaluated against all of the other students who applied to the same major during the same review period as your submission.
Admission is based on space availability in the desired major and your academic performance as indicated by your cumulative grade point average (cGPA). 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.
You will be notified of your admission status through your UConn email address. You may only have one active application in our PPC 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 Criteria (for all majors except MEM):
Minimum Criteria for MEM Admission:
Note: AP credits and transfer credits are not taken into consideration during the admission review. ECE credits will be considered once non-degree decisions have been added to a student's account (spring semester).
Minimum Eligibility Criteria for Current SoE Students: Be in good academic standing with the School of Engineering for admission to non-space limited programs. Space limited programs will review requests based on space availability in the major and academic performance. Multidisciplinary Engineering applicants must consult with Shoshana Armington (firstname.lastname@example.org) about intended concentration. Admission guaranteed to MEM during first semester only.
