- A minimum 2.0 Technical GPA. The Technical GPA is calculated from all BAE prefixes or substitutions to BAE courses.
- A grade of "C" or better is required in following courses: BAE 2013, BAE 3013, BAE 3023, BAE 3033, BAE 3213, ENSC 2113, ENSC 2143, ENSC 2213, ENSC 2613, ENSC 3233.
- Students are required to complete the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam prior to graduation.
- A minimum of 40 semester credit hours and 100 grade points must be earned in courses numbered 3000 or above.
- A 2.00 GPA or higher in upper-division hours.
Additional State/OSU Requirements
- At least: 60 hours at a four-year institution; 30 hours completed at OSU; 15 of the final 30 or 50% of the upper-division hours in the major field completed at OSU.
- Limit of: one-half of major course requirements as transfer work; one-fourth of hours earned by correspondence; 8 transfer correspondence hours.
- Students will be held responsible for degree requirements in effect at the time of matriculation and any changes that are made, so long as these changes do not result in semester credit hours being added or do not delay graduation.
- Degrees that follow this plan must be completed by the end of Summer 2027.
