Admission Requirements for International Students

In addition to meeting the Engineering for Professionals general admission requirements, and any program-specific requirements, all international students must complete the following application requirements:

International Credential Evaluation

  • Applicants who hold degrees or have earned credits from non-U.S. institutions are required to have their academic records evaluated by World Education Services (WES) before being considered as a special student* or gain admission to a degree or certificate program.
  • Applicants are required to use the International Credential Advantage Package (WES ICAP), which provides electronic delivery of verified academic transcripts along with credential evaluation reports. The WES requirement is also referred to as a Course-by-Course Evaluation in many instances throughout the application process. Engineering for Professionals will only accept WES evaluations submitted electronically from WES directly to our application system.

I enjoyed the courses, the course materials, topics, and more than anything, the hands on projects associated with the course. The Professors were all professional and approachable. I would absolutely recommend this program to anyone.
