Students admitted to the program normally will have a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from a chemical engineering department that is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.
There is no single criterion for admission, and consideration is given to all aspects of an applicant's academic and/or career history. A student is expected to have a minimum grade point average of 2.75 out of 4.0 in all undergraduate chemical engineering courses.
Applicants holding an undergraduate degree in chemistry from an accredited university with a minimum overall grade point average of 3.0 out of 4.0, who have completed all chemistry, physics, and mathematics courses required for a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering in our department may be admitted as non-degree students to pursue a special program of "course work only'' as preparation for transfer to the degree program of advanced level courses and research. Students in the "course work only'' non-degree program must earn a minimum GPA of 2.75 out of 4.0 in all chemical engineering courses. A student who accumulates less than a 2.75 average at any time in the non-degree program will be dropped from the program.
