Admissions

The Kansas State University Carl R. Ice College of Engineering provides a student-centered experience and customized education. Our student body is a diverse group of individuals who challenge each other to persevere, accelerate their goals and impact the world through innovation.

Unique to K-State engineering is no cap on the numbers in any of our degree programs. If a student is undecided about which discipline of engineering to pursue, the option is available to start out in the general engineering program. We want all students to be academically successful while pursuing their career goals.

The following criteria must be met for admission to the Kansas State University Carl R. Ice College of Engineering. For undergraduate students starting in fall 2021, standardized test scores (ACT/SAT) will no longer be required.

First-year students

A first-year student is someone who has not enrolled at another college or university within one year of graduating from high school.

To be admitted directly into one of our 12 degree programs or engineering undecided, a student must meet the following criteria:

  • 3.50 high school GPA

Note: It is expected a student has completed a minimum of three years of math in high school, through college algebra/trigonometry, and be ready to enroll in the first calculus course in the math sequence for a specific program.

To be admitted into our first-year general engineering, or construction science and management program, a student must meet the following criteria:

  • 3.25 high school GPA

Note: The preference is that a student has completed high school math through college algebra or equivalent.

Students who do not meet the engineering GPA requirements but meet the K-State standardized test score requirements for admission (21 ACT or 1060 SAT) will be reviewed individually for admission.

Students who do not meet the engineering GPA requirements or the K-State standardized test score requirements for admission will be reviewed individually and may be admitted into the Engineering Pathways program in the College of Arts and Sciences.

Transfer students

A transfer student is someone who has enrolled at another college or university since graduating from high school.

To be admitted directly into one of our 12 degree programs or engineering undecided, a student must meet the following criteria:

  • 2.75 cumulative GPA on all transfer coursework (Credit from high school does not count toward the cumulative GPA.)

Note: The preference is that students be eligible to enroll in or have completed the first calculus course in the math sequence for a specific program.

Internal transfer students

An internal transfer is a student who is currently attending K-State as an admitted student and would like to transfer into the Carl R. Ice College of Engineering.

To be admitted directly into one of our 12 degree programs or engineering undecided, a student must meet the following criteria:

  • Completed a minimum of 12 K-State credit hours
  • 2.50 K-State GPA
  • Completed the first calculus course in the math sequence for a specific degree program earning a “C” or better

Military-connected and non-traditional students

A holistic review of each application will be conducted for students with a military background or who have a non-traditional background (graduated from high school more than one year ago and have not enrolled at another college/university). 

International students

For information on international admissions, please contact the Office of International Programs.

 


Important: Offers of admission are contingent on students completing their academic file with final official transcripts. If a qualifying grade point average is not maintained, the Carl R. Ice College of Engineering reserves the right to rescind admission. University admission and enrollment may still occur.
