Admission Requirements

First Year Students Applying to Engineering Technology Programs

To be directly admitted to one of the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology programs or information technology program (Computer Science and Engineering Technology, Construction Engineering Technology, Electrical Engineering Technology, Information Technology, and Mechanical Engineering Technology) first year, full-time students need a minimum cumulative high school GPA of 2.5 or GED average standard score of 480 in the 2002 format or 700 in the 2014 format with a Mathematical Reasoning sub-score of 180. A minimum ACT composite score of 21 or SAT combined score of 1070 and a minimum ACT math score of 20 or SAT math score of 510 are also required. In 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, The University of Toledo implemented test-optional admission.  Students without standardized test scores require a minimum high school GPA of 3.0 and a B- grade or higher in algebra. 

Any students who do not meet the minimum requirements for Engineering Technology programs listed above will be admitted to the Pre- Major Program in the University College’s Exploratory Studies Program.  This program is designed to provide students with additional services and programs that will assist them in fulfilling their educational goals. Academic Advisors identify the students’ goals at orientation and ensure that Pre-major students register for courses that will align with their desired engineering program at UToledo.

Transfer students are students with college credit (including credit from The University of Toledo) taken the fall semester of the year they graduated from high school or later. To transfer to The University of Toledo from another institution, students must have a minimum higher education GPA of 2.0 for all college-level work. To transfer into the Information Technology program, students must have a minimum higher education GPA of 2.25 for all college-level work. Transfer students with a minimum higher education GPA of 2.0 (the University standard) who do not meet the IT program admission requirements of 2.25 will be admitted to the UT Learning Collaborative Transition Program.
