Other Requirements

Admission to Professional School (required)

  • Refer to the OSU Catalog corresponding to your matriculation date for detailed admissions requirements.

Graduation Requirements

  1. A minimum GPA of 2.00 is required in Professional School coursework (right hand column).
  2. A ‘C’ or better is required in each course that is a prerequisite for a CIVE course.
  3. The major engineering design experience, capstone course, is satisfied by CIVE 4043 Senior Design. If “B” or higher is not earned in ENGL 1113 Composition I, then ENGL 1213 Composition II must be completed.

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 2025.
