SHM pre-major applications are accepted throughout the academic year. Major applications are accepted during spring quarter, and students officially start in the fall quarter. Admission to the program is based upon a review of completed prerequisite courses, and application materials. Please see the program application at www.cwu.edu/engineering.
Admission to any course requires a grade of C or higher in each prerequisite listed. Students who do not meet the prerequisite grade requirement will be dropped from the course.
A student is expected to complete each course used to fulfill a degree program requirement with a grade of C or higher. Students must complete all CWU basic and breadth requirements prior to beginning 400-level SHM coursework.
