Intending and Pre Majors

Students entering the university direct from high school and who meet the Direct Admit Criteria* are admitted as Pre majors in our college. All students including Pre and those Intending an Engineering or Computer Science major must meet the college major admission requirements appropriate to their program as shown below in order to become fully admitted to the college and to their major program of study.

Intending Engineering and Computer Science (IECS) students should contact the Student Success Center in 280 Joshi, at (937) 775-5272 to make an advising appointment. All IECS students have mandatory advising, so they must meet with their advisor prior to registration each term. Once an IECS student has met the college major admission requirements, they will be transitioned to their departmental advisor.
