B.S. Portion of the Program Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org

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.

Admission to the accelerated program is by application and requires a minimum GPA of 3.20. 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 Environmental Engineering.

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