General Information

In order to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering, you must normally be admitted to major status before registering for any upper level Biomedical Engineering classes. To be considered for admission to major status requires, as a minimum, completion of the courses listed below with a grade point average of 3.00 or better. You may repeat technical courses only once, and the second grade received will be counted for the requirement. Actual admission is based on the composite GPA as calculated on the application form. Students with a University cumulative GPA of 3.0 and a composite GPA of 3.35 or higher will be automatically admitted to major status at the time of submission; students with composite GPAs below 3.35 but equal to or above 3.0 will be placed on a wait list and admitted as space permits at the start of the spring semester. Students enter the program in time to start the spring semester.


To apply for admission to major status, submit an application form, a current DARS report and transcript of transfer credits (if applicable) to the Undergraduate Coordinator. Applications are received anytime, but to be accepted to the major for spring semester, students must turn in their application no later than December 31st.
