Find a University : Admissions

Application Process A complete application is usually comprised of an online application, official transcript of grades, official scores from recognized admissions exams, and recommendations from counselors, teachers, other mentors. An essay may also usually required. Most applications are completed online, and students should apply to more than one university. It's important to be realistic about the strength of an application, and apply to universities that are appropriate for the student's goals and prior experience levels. Some students will apply to a few schools that they consider a "stretch," a few that are likely to accept the student, and a few alternates. Most universities charge a fee to cover the cost of processing an application, which is usually nonrefundable. Additional university application facts are available on university websites, and from pre-university level counseling departments. For additional tips on applying to US schools, click here. Contact Admissions Departments TryEngineering lists the URL for the admissions department at most universities in our system. Because admissions procedures differ for each university, it is a good idea to check with the admissions staff for guidelines specific to each school of interest. Pre-University Student Opportunities Students of all ages can find opportunities to pursue their career and education in engineering. Find listings ranging from summer camps and competitions to internships and research positions.

Work Experience Programs For Pre-University Students Some businesses offer high school students an opportunity to work during the summer or after school to gain experience in engineering fields. These work experiences are highly valuable and can make a difference in the application process. Find out more through engineering societies and perhaps a local chamber of commerce.
