Admission Requirements

Entering Freshmen

Tobe considered for admission to any Bachelor of Science program in Engineering, freshmen need at least a 2.75 cumulative high school grade point average AND a minimum ACT composite score of 20 (or SAT combined score of 960). Students also must successfully complete a minimum of four years of high school mathematics (with an emphasis in trigonometry or pre-calculus) and high school chemistry (physics is also strongly recommended). Students who do not meet the minimum requirements will be considered for admission to Engineering Technology or may choose another University program.

Transfer Students (Admission with Advanced Standing)

Students transferring into the College of Engineering from within the University or from other colleges and universities must have obtained a minimum cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0. Admission to the Bachelor of Science programs in Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Industrial Engineering and Mechanical Engineering requires a 2.75 GPA and college credit for calculus and chemistry. Students not admitted to an engineering program may not take engineering courses unless those courses are required for a degree program outside of engineering. Transfer to upper level Engineering Technology programs requires a 2.0 cumulative GPA.

Students transferring from other institutions must earn at least 32 hours of undergraduate credit in residence at The University of Toledo. At least 14 hours of these must be in the major area. The remainder are to be in engineering topics or other hours that satisfy degree requirements.

Full-time students must take their last semester in residence (part-time students must take their last 14 hours in residence) unless exceptional arrangements have been made in advance with the Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies in the College. Bachelor of Engineering Technology students must earn at least 30 hours at The University of Toledo, not including deficiencies.

Co-operative (Co-op) Education Program

Starting in Fall 1997, new entry-level students in the B.S. programs are required to complete a cooperative (Co-op) educational component. For Engineering Technology students, participation in the co-op program is optional. The purpose of the co-op program is to provide students with career-related experiences. The program also helps students defray the cost of their education and enhances employment opportunities upon graduation. To satisfy the requirement, a student will participate in at least three work experiences in which work and school alternate. The student pays a $200 fee upon completion of each of the work experiences. Successful completion of each work experience appears on the student's transcript. The college will assist students in finding co-op positions but cannot guarantee employment.

Honors Program

The Honors Program in the College of Engineering provides opportunities for challenging and individual study to undergraduate students of unusually high ability, motivation and initiative. For admission requirements, see Admission to the University Honors Program in the General Section of this catalog.


Currently enrolled University of Toledo students and transfer students may apply for admission to
the College Honors Program if they have completed at least 15, but not more than 60, graded semester hours with a UT grade point average of at least 3.5.


Toreceive the Honors Citation upon graduation from an engineering Bachelor's degree program, the following criteria must be met:

1.GPA: A cumulative GPA of at least 3.3.

2.Total Honors Hours: A total of 33 semester hours in Honors courses are required, 6 of which must be in the interdisciplinary Honors area (Readings Conference) and 10 of which must be in Honors courses offered by the UT College of Engineering.

3.Complete an Honors Thesis or Honors Project.
