Special Notes:
1) No PDACC ENGR transfer student for fall should be moved / deferred until spring. Deferrals require dean’s
review.
2) If AP math is indicated for Math 140, the College of Engineering assumes that the AP scores will be added
to the student’s record because it is an entrance-to-major requirement. Request unofficial email scores from
applicants to expedite the review. OFFER shouldn’t be made until official scores are on record.
3) 3/2 is a special program/contract with other schools for majors that are not under enrollment control.
