Civil Engineering (B.S.C.E.)

To graduate in this program, a minimum grade of C must be earned in all engineering, mathematics, and science courses used to satisfy the curriculum.

Any student majoring in civil engineering may accumulate no more than 14 credits of D or F in mathematics, science, technical elective, or engineering courses that are used to satisfy graduation requirements. Included in this number are multiple repeats of a single class or single repeats in multiple classes and courses transferred from other institutions. A warning will be issued in writing to students who have accumulated 7 credits of D or F in mathematics, science, technical elective, or engineering classes used to satisfy curricular requirements.
