If you are currently in ACES (Academic Center for Exploratory Students) or another major, you will need a minimum to apply:

  1. Complete CHEM 1127Q or another lab science and MATH 1131Q (or Math 1125Q and 1126Q) with a C or better during a full-time semester (12 credits or above).
  2. Have at least a 2.7 GPA or higher. (Biomedical, Mechanical and Computer Science/Computer Science & Engineering will admit on a space availability basis and GPA requirement will fluctuate).
  3. Apply online by the end of each semester (Dec 31st or May 31st. Decisions will be made in January and June.

The School of Engineering no longer has a rolling admissions policy and your application will be processed in January and June each year.

Avery Point and Waterbury campus students in an engineering major will be required to stay for two years or four semesters (unless an exception is made by the regional campus). All other regional campus students that are accepted to an Engineering major routinely spend the first two semesters at the regional campus and then change to the Storrs campus to start the second year engineering curriculum.
