Interested in attending the College of Engineering?
Here are recommended steps to guide you towards becoming an engineering major:
Getting Admitted to the University. This begins with you completing an application, which can be done on-line at ApplyTexas. After completing application, make sure to send your high school transcript and test scores (e.g., SAT, ACT, AP scores) to the Office of Admissions and Recruitment. To track and assist you with this process, get a Miner Insider account. If you are an international student, it is recommended to visit the Office of International Programs.
Paying for College. Conveniently, all scholarships are processed through theOffice of Scholarships. This one-time application keeps students connected, as you will be matched to scholarships you might be eligible for until the time you graduate. The College of Engineering also has other scholarships, but you will need to establish a GPA before you are eligible... so hit the books hard that first semester! You should also try to get other assistance, so apply for financial aid by completing a FAFSA application. If you are simultaneously enrolling in at UTEP and EPCC, we encourage you to complete the Financial Aid Consortium Agreement Form.
Attending an Orientation. Now it is time to sign up for and attend a New Student Orientation (NSO) or Transfer Student Orientation session. As a student entering the College of Engineering, we will share academic and pre-professional expectations and the resources to meet these expectations that include, but limited to, the College's facilities, faculty/staff and other fellow engineering majors.
Getting Registered for Courses. The final and most important step to becoming a student in the College of Engineering is to register for classes via Goldmine. Advising by professional and peer advisors will occur during your orientation session, and it is our goal to get you registered for courses that best fit your priorities and schedule.
