Program Admission

This is an updated program description that applies to all students admitted beginning Summer, 2010.

Students interested in pursuing a degree in engineering who have a minimum composite ACT score of 19 and Math ACT scores of 19-23 (SAT composite 900; Math 460 – 550), will be admitted into Pre-Engineering until all of the following minimum requirements are met:

  • Overall college Grade Point Average of 2.0
  • Completion of MTH 127/130 College Algebra (or equivalent) with a grade of C
  • MTH 132 Pre-Calculus (or equivalent) with a grade of C

In order to transfer into the engineering programs offered at Marshall, students must meet the Math ACT requirement or complete the requirements listed above for Pre-Engineering majors. This pertains to transfer students within Marshall or from another institution.

Once all requirements listed above have been met, students will be transferred to the desired engineering major.

Curriculum Plan

Students who are admitted to the Pre-Engineering program generally will require an additional calendar year to complete the requirements for the B.S.E. degree or engineering transfer.
Each student should meet with his/her faculty advisor early in the program to develop an individual Curriculum Plan since requirements will vary for different professional schools, desired major, and academic preparation.

This is an updated program description that applies to all students admitted beginning Summer, 2010.

This Curriculum Plan is based on an ACT Math score of 19-23 or SAT Math score of 460-550.
