Admission Requirements and Information

Undergraduate Admissions

Admission to the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) at the University of Cincinnati is based on a holistic review of applicants’ grades, test scores, classes taken, extracurricular involvement and activities, letters of recommendation, and essay.

The CEAS has a direct admittance policy, which means that high school students apply directly to the program they are most interested in. If students are undecided or have several preferences, they can indicate up to three choices on their college application; or they can apply to the Freshman Engineering Program, an undecided engineering program that allows students to transition to a specific program after one to two semesters.
