Admission requirements

Admission to the Ph.D. program in civil and environmental engineering requires that the student's overall GPA be 3.3 or greater, and 3.4 over the final two years. Students who do not satisfy these minimum requirements will not be considered for admission to the program unless they have completed an M.S. degree in civil and environmental engineering with an HPA in courses taken for graduate credit which is not less than 3.5 (or equivalent). Admission requires an undergraduate engineering degree from an institution accredited by ABET or from a comparable foreign institution. International applicants are required to submit a WES Evaluation. Only regular admission may be granted to the Ph.D. program.

If a student is admitted to the Ph.D. program directly after completing a B.S. degree and ultimately fails to meet all subsequent requirements for the Ph.D., he/she may transfer appropriate credits toward the M.S. degree program in civil and environmental engineering.

Admission to the M.S. or Ph.D. program is contingent upon admission to the Graduate School.

For admission and full funding consideration, please have your application completed by March 1st. Most decisions will be released by April 1st.
