2017-2018 Admissions Requirements for the Fulton Schools

Admission requirements for many majors in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering are higher than university admission standards. Please review the Admissions Requirements (PDF) link for a complete list of degree programs requiring higher admission standards.

English Language Proficiency Requirement

Success at ASU begins with a strong comprehension of the English language. Because our rigorous courses are taught in English and move at a fast pace, fluency in the language is necessary for understanding concepts and expressing yourself effectively. Applicants whose native language is not English must provide evidence of English language proficiency by submitting test scores from one of the following: Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) International English Language Testing System (IELTS) Pearson Test of English (PTE)

Conditional Admission

ASU may offer conditional undergraduate admission to international applicants who meet the academic (aptitude) requirement but who are not proficient in English. Through conditional admission, students must first successfully complete the Advanced 2 level of the English language course at ASU’s American English and Culture Program or demonstrate English proficiency as stated above before being allowed to enroll in university courses.

Note: ASU reserves the right to independently test any student’s English proficiency upon arrival, including those who have met the English proficiency requirement, and may require support classes if the demonstrated level of English proficiency is not sufficient for academic success.

Change of Major

Students interested in changing their major to one of the majors within the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering must meet the admission requirements. Note that the GPA requirement for change of major is calculated using all coursework (ASU + transfer GPA). 

Students who were admitted as freshmen into the Fulton Schools of Engineering, with the exception of the Polytechnic School and Engineering Exploration, and have maintained continuous enrollment in any Fulton Schools major may choose to change to any other major within the Fulton Schools of Engineering provided they are in good academic standing. Students admitted to the Polytechnic School and Engineering Exploration must meet the transfer admission requirements in order to change to a Fulton Engineering major outside of the Polytechnic School.

Transfer students who have been admitted to the Fulton Schools of Engineering from a non-ASU institution or another college within ASU must meet the transfer admission requirements in order to change to any other major within the Fulton Schools of Engineering.

Additional Resources available at aztransfer.com This site is designed for use by students transferring within Arizona’s public institutions of higher education—community colleges, tribal colleges and state universities.

Change of major is not guaranteed, and students interested in changing majors are encouraged to make an appointment with an advisor in the program of interest to discuss the probability of success and to develop a plan of action to ensure successful advancement to upper-division courses.  For questions regarding admission to a program in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, please contact the Office of Academic and Student Affairs: 480-965-1726
