Student From TAMU Departments Outside the College of Engineering

Fall Admission February 15th to May 1st
Spring Admission September 15th to December 15th

Students requesting transfer admission (change of curriculum) from another TAMU department outside the College will be evaluated only when they have:

  • completed at least one semester of course work at TAMU
  • completed a minimum of 12 SCH of CBK1) courses that include: MATH 151, PHYS 218, CHEM 107 and CHEM 117 or equivalents with a grade not less than “C”
  • earned a CBK GPR of 2.75 or better
  • earned a cumulative GPR of 2.75 or better
  • no history of repeating, dropping or withdrawing from courses
  • not made a grade less than “C” in any course in the previous semester

Only the “best” grade is used in computing the CBK GPR. However, in the case of “marginal” students, CBK courses taken at TAMU are viewed more favorably than those taken elsewhere. Students who have repeated a CBK course or courses, regardless of the reason, are not viewed as favorably as those who pass the course(s) on the first attempt. The Civil Engineering curriculum requires Foundations of Engineering I and II (ENGR 111 and ENGR 112).  A course equivalent to ENDG 105 and a course equivalent to CSCE 110 or 206 at A&M will be accepted for the ENGR 111 and ENGR 112 course requirements only if the approved courses were completed prior to spring 2015.

Applicants for the ocean engineering department should fill out the Change of Curriculum Form and submit it to Charlie Donaway or Anna Budvitis.
