Graduation Requirements

  1. A minimum average GPA of 2.00 is required in all courses with an engineering or engineering technology prefix.
  2. A grade of C or better is required in a 1000-3000-level GENT, EET, ENSC, or MET course in order to advance to a course for which the GENT, EET, ENSC, or MET course is prerequisite.
  3. Students will be held responsible for degree requirements in effect at the time of matriculation and any changes that are made so long as the changes do not delay graduation or result in semester hours being added.

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 2024.
