Provisional Admission

In rare cases, provisional admission may be granted to applicants without undergraduate engineering degrees who are deficient in undergraduate coursework considered essential for study in the Department of Bioengineering. Coursework requirements for conversion from provisional to full graduate standing will be determined at the time of provisional admission. Graduate credit will not be given for coursework taken to satisfy provisional admission deficiencies. All coursework deficiencies must be completed before full graduate standing will be granted. Students must achieve a minimum of 3.0/4.0 GPA in all provisional coursework. In addition, during the provisional period, a minimum of 3.0/4.0 must be achieved in any graduate coursework being applied to the graduate degree. Conversion from provisional standing to full graduate standing is subject to review and approval by the Graduate Committee. All requirements must be met within the time line established at the time of provisional admission. Courses required for students admitted provisionally include, but are not limited to, those given in Table 1 below.

Table 1: Undergraduate Courses for Students Granted Provisional Admission.All provisional students must take the core courses, or have received a 3.0/4.0 GPA or better in a suitable equivalent. Courses within one of the options categories are selected as appropriate and will be determined at the time of provisional admission.
