Entry Requirements

  • Candidates must meet all university admission requirements. Students with a major GPA of 3.0 or higher are not required to take the GRE. All others must take the GRE General Test and obtained a combined score of 315 or higher in the Verbal and Quantitative sections, and 3.5 or higher in the Analytical Writing section. Students can be admitted in either classified or conditionally classified standing. To be admitted to classified standing, a student must possess a BS degree in biomedical engineering or its equivalent from an accredited institution with a grade point average of 2.75 or better in the last 60 semester units, have met the GRE requirement if their major GPA is below 3.0, and also have completed the Transition Courses with grades of B or better.
  • Students can be admitted to conditionally classified standing if they have a BS degree in an engineering discipline, chemistry, physics or biology from an accredited institution. Students with conditionally classified standing will take a series of Transition Courses. Once these are completed satisfactorily, students can petition for transfer to classified standing.
