Admission Requirements for the Chemical Engineering Master of Science Degree Program
Admission to the Master of Science in Chemical Engineering degree program with full standing requires that the applicant meet the following requirements:
- A bachelor's degree in chemical engineering from an ABET-accredited institution.
- An undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or above for the last 60 hours of courses taken.
The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is waived for candidates holding a bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering from an ABET-accredited institution. The GRE is required for all other candidates.
Students not meeting these requirements may be considered if they can demonstrate equivalent evidence of an appropriate background. Students with degrees from foreign institutions may be required to take the TOEFL exam.
The application and admission process takes two to three months to complete. Distance students should plan to apply within that timeframe or earlier before the semester in which they wish to start their program. Application review will not begin until all transcripts, application fees and other supporting documents are received.
