Engineering Technology

Admission Requirements

The University's minimum admission requirements include a cumulative high school GPA of 2.0 and an ACT score of 19 (SAT combined score of 910). More selective admission criteria can be established by each college. To be considered for admission to one of the five Bachelor of Science programs in the Engineering Technology Department, including IT, new direct-from-high-school (DHS) students need a minimum cumulative high school GPA of 2.40 (effective fall 2017) and a minimum ACT composite score of 21 (or SAT combined score of 980).

New students may apply for admission. Online applications are automatically reviewed by computer software using the appropriate criteria. If an applicant is denied admission and asks for reconsideration, the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies in the College of Engineering, Dr. Scott Molitor, reviews the application in consultation with the department.

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.

Students that are new to The University of Toledo are required to participate in an orientation program known as Rocket Launch for direct-from-high-school students or Rocket Transition for transfer students. This is a one day program that orients students to the University's policies and procedures. Students may take placement tests for mathematics, English and chemistry (if appropriate to their program of study) sometime prior to the morning of their orientation program (e.g., the day before). During the afternoon they meet with their advisor, in a computer lab, where they receive help registering for classes for their initial semester at UT.
