Advanced Standing

In order to enroll in 300- or 400-level courses in the College of Engineering, students must be granted advanced standing. Meeting the advanced standing requirements helps to ensure that you are prepared to take rigorous junior and senior engineering classes.

When you achieve permanent advanced standing, you will be charged the differential tuition for upper-division College of Engineering students.

You must meet with your major adviser, Danielle Embry, to fill out the advanced standing application form.


To qualify for advanced standing, students must meet the following criteria:
