Other Requirements

Graduation Requirements

  1. A minimum 2.00 Technical GPA. The technical GPA is calculated from all courses counting in the curriculum with a prefix belonging to the degree program, or substitutions for these courses.
  2. If “B” or higher is not earned in ENGL 1113 Composition I, then ENGL 1213 Composition II must be completed.
  3. A "C" or better is required in all CIVE, ENSC, and Math prefixed courses required in the degree.
  4. The major engineering design experience, capstone course, is satisfied by CIVE 4043 Senior Design

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 2029.
