Detailed information pertaining to admission to the University and the Engineering College is provided in the Undergraduate Catalog. Generally, freshmen entering the EE Department (Pre-EE) must have been graduated from high school with an appropriate math and science background and received a minimum SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) score of 1200 or the equivalent ACT (American College Test) score of 28. An SAT score of less than 1200 or ACT score less than 28 allows entrance to a general engineering program, with potential to transfer into EE.
Transfer students include those from other departments within UTA as well as those from other educational institutions. All transfer students must have a minimum 2.50 GPA on all courses applicable to the Pre-EE program in order to be accepted into Pre-EE. UTA students wishing to transfer into Pre-EE and who have completed eight (8) credit hours of applicable Pre-EE courses should come to the Advising Office and complete a Change of Major Worksheet, which will be submitted to the Undergraduate Advisor for approval. UTA does not accept transfer credit of engineering courses from technology schools. However, some courses listed as technology courses transfer from other colleges. Even though these courses transfer into UTA, most of them do not apply to the EE Degree Plan. A decision on the applicability of such courses will be made by the Undergraduate Advisor.
