College of Engineering and Computer Sciences
CECS minimum admission requirements for students in addition to Marshall general requirements at the freshman level are:
- All engineering programs, including the B.S in Biomedical Engineering, B.S in Civil Engineering, B.S in Electrical and Computer Engineering, B.S in Engineering, and B.S in Mechanical Engineering: a composite ACT of 21 with a math ACT of 24 are required (composite SAT of 1060 with a math SAT of 570)
- B.S in Computer science and B.S in Computer and Information Security: a composite ACT of 21 with a math ACT of 24 are required (composite SAT of 1060 with a math SAT of 570)
- B.S in Computer and Information Technology: a composite ACT of 21 with a math ACT of 24 are required (composite SAT of 1060 with a math SAT of 530)
- B.S. in Occupational Safety and Health: a composite ACT of 17 with a math ACT of 17 are required (composite SAT of 820 with a math SAT of 440)
- Pre-Engineering and Pre-Computer Science: a composite ACT of 19 with a math ACT of 19-23 are required (composite SAT of 990 with a math SAT of 510-560)
- CECS Undecided Majors: Marshall general requirements
The college requires all freshmen and pre-computer science, pre-engineering, engineering transfer, and CECS Undecided students to see their advisors before they register each semester.
It is important to consult Degree Works, which can be found in the myMU portal, about degree progress. Degree Works is used to verify progress toward degree and degree completion status. All courses completed and all courses needed for the degree are listed. If there are questions about Degree Works, please consult your faculty advisor.
Determining Your Catalog
You must meet the catalog requirements in effect at the time you declare your major. You then have ten years in which to complete your program. If you do not meet graduation requirements in this ten-year period, then you must meet the curriculum requirements of the catalog in effect at the date of graduation. If you decide to change your major within CECS or to transfer to another college at Marshall, you are governed by the catalog in effect at the time of change.
Academic Probation and Suspension
Please consult the university’s policy on academic probation or suspension.
Students are welcome to select undecided as a major; however, students in CECS begin taking classes in the major field of study their freshman year. Students who have selected undecided as a major and are Junior level status or above, 60 credit hours or more, must declare a major in order to register for the next semester of courses. The necessary paperwork is available in the CECS Dean’s office.
Students in CECS are responsible for meeting the Core Curriculum of Marshall University. Please consult the Core Curriculum section of the catalog, as well as the specific degree requirements, for details. Students in CECS are to consult with their advisors for guidance in how to meet these baccalaureate curricular initiatives.
