Candidates can apply for direct admission to the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, or to departments within the school. Students from secondary schools (high schools) must have completed mathematics through trigonometry, and should have completed biology, chemistry, physics and other higher-level courses. High school grades, class standing, Regents exam scores, and either Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Testing (ACT) scores are considered in the admission process.
For detailed information about freshman and transfer admission, go to the University's undergraduate admission web site.
Note for transfer students: students must satisfy a residency requirement that stipulates that a maximum of four courses from another school may be used as substitutes for required (14 total) and elective (2 total) CE courses. CBE places no limits (beyond those already imposed by the University) on the number of BIO, CHE, MTH, PHY, EAS, general technical electives, and general education courses that are applied to the B.S. degree requirements.
