Change to Engineering Pre-Major

The college is implementing an admit to major process that will utilize one application for all engineering programs. This new process goes beyond the traditional grade metric and incorporates a multi-factor review through which the voices and stories of all of our aspiring engineering students can be told. Only students enrolled within the College of Engineering are permitted to participate in this admission to major process.

Those students interested in engineering and enrolled in programs outside of the College of Engineering are encouraged to change into the college as soon as they meet the criteria.

Note: Students currently enrolled outside of the college and are wishing to complete a dual degree will still want to complete this request. Students can indicate this intention on the request form. If their request is approved, the student will be added to a engineering pre-major on a second degree program.

Students who meet the following four criteria will be permitted to change into the College of Engineering pre-major program:

  1. have a 2.5 or better cumulative OSU GPA
  2. have earned 12 hours or more of graded OSU credit (excluding terms of enrollment through post-secondary enrollment programs such as Academy)
  3. have completed Calculus II (Math 1172 or 1152); or direct equivalent transfer or EM credit for Math 1152 or higher
  4. have credit for one of Chemistry 1210, Chemistry 1250, or Physics 1250
