Admission requirements

The following is the step-by-step process:

  1. Student should apply for the Super Grad Track option in the junior year (completed at least 75 credit hours with GPA of 3.5 or higher).
  2. After the application is approved and have completed at least 90 credit hours, the students can start taking the graduate courses that are approved for Super Grad Track as EE electives for the BS degree requirement. For the graduate courses to be counted for the Ph.D. degree later, the student must meet the minimum grade requirements of the courses in the Ph.D. program.
  3. The student should apply to Toulouse Graduate School within the first semester of the senior year. The student needs to submit online application and all required documents for admission in the Ph.D. in EE program.
  4. The students must enroll in graduate school in the long semester after finishing his/her BS degree and should take the remaining graduate courses in the following year(s) to complete his/her Ph.D. degree. If the student did not enroll in graduate school in the long semester after finishing his/her BS degree, those graduate course credit hours will not be counted anymore for the Ph.D. degree even if the student comes back for graduate school in the future.
  5. Students in Grad Track program can apply to transfer to Super Grad Track program anytime with departmental approval.
  6. Once admitted to the Ph.D. program, the students will have higher priority for funding (research and teaching assistantships) to support Ph.D. study.
