ADMISSION CRITERIA

  1. Admission is considered after completion of Pre-Engineering curricular requirements.
  2. Minimum overall GPA of 2.0. A 2.0 grade is necessary in all required Pre-Engineering courses. Courses vary with specialty, see WMU catalog.
  3. Permission to enroll in Engineering classes at the 300 level or above will not be granted until pre-engineering courses included in this guide are completed.

BASIC REQUIREMENTS

These requirements and recommendations will apply to Pre-Engineering requirements and other engineering courses at WMU; however, these courses will not satisfy the MACRAO agreement or NMC degree requirements. If students wish to receive NMC Associate degrees, they should consult with a Counselor or Advisor for appropriate course elections.
