New! Early Admissions applications accepted for Autumn 2013
To be considered for early admission, applicants must be currently enrolled at the UW and must have a minimum of 15 credits taken in residence at the UW. Prerequisites for early admission are listed below. A minimum grade of 2.0 is required in each prerequisite course and an overall cumulative GPA of 2.5 is required to apply. As admission is competitive, meeting minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. All prerequisite courses must be completed by the July 1 application deadline.
- Fifteen credits of mathematics at the level of MATH 124, 125, & 126 (Calculus I, II, III) or equivalent.
- At least 10 credits of physical science courses plus accompanying lab selected from PHYS 121, 122, 123 (calculus-based physics) or CHEM 142, 152 (General Chemistry I, III)
- Five credits of English composition
Applications for autumn admission to the undergraduate program will be accepted starting in mid-June with the application deadline of July 1. The online application opens approximately two weeks prior to the July 1 application deadline. After 5 p.m. on July 1, the engineering application will close until the next available admission period.
Getting ready for the CEE Program
- Learn more about the CEE program by attending an information session, attending College of Engineering informational events, and/or meeting with a pre-engineering or CEE advisor.
- Start on engineering prerequisite courses right away. There are many and courses are sequenced. Prerequisite and Recommended courses
- Be sure that your major status is Pre-Engineering (check MyUW). Pre-engineering status is required for priority registration for many prerequisite engineering courses.
- Understand the engineering application procedures before the application period begins in mid-June. You should prepare your personal statement and gather information necessary to complete the application early, prior to the application deadline.
- Take CEE 100: “21st Century Civil and Environmental Engineering” (offered winter quarter). CEE 100 is a one-credit (Credit/No Credit) course that provides an overview of the modern field of civil/environmental engineering and its various sub-areas through an array of faculty and industry presenters.
