Admission Application Review and Decisions

Each application is reviewed as follows:

  • After the application due date, the SFSC BSEE Committee reviews all applications that have met the minimum requirements for acceptance.
  • The top 26 applications who have the highest GPAs and meet all admission requirements are admitted into the next cohort of the BSEE program, pending clean background checks.
  • For candidates who are equally weighed in the admission process, the cumulative GPA of all prerequisite courses will be reviewed.
  • Applicants who are not in the top 26 slots are placed on a waiting list. If they are not admitted into the BSEE before the next starting date, they are required to reapply for the next cohort.

Students who are admitted into the program using the 10 percent waiver provision will be monitored throughout the first academic term to ensure they complete the requirements to remain in the program. The advisor will meet with these students throughout the term to report their progress and status to the lead instructor.
