In order to progress in your curriculum in the Gallogly College of Engineering, and as a specific graduation requirement, a grade of C or better is required in each course in the curriculum, including all prerequisite courses.

Two college-level courses in a single foreign language are required; this may be satisfied by successful completion of 2 years in a single foreign language in high school. Students who must take foreign language at the University will have an additional 6-10 hours of coursework.

In order to progress into 2nd year courses in AME, students must successfully complete (grade C or better) MATH 1914; MATH 2924; PHYS 2514 and CHEM 1315 with 3.0 Combined Retention GPA, and possess a minimum 3.0 Combined Retention GPA in 24 or more credit hours. AP credit is acceptable for any of these required courses.

Approval for admission to the accelerated BS/MS program must be initiated at the beginning of the second semester of the junior year. Students may enter the accelerated program based on the undergraduate degree pattern offered in the year they first enrolled in the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education or later.

Students are eligible for graduate status upon graduation with the Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering.
