Admission
Certain basic requirements must be met for admission to all of the graduate programs offered by the Mercer University School of Engineering. These requirements are intended to ensure that profitable graduate study will result from admission. Students may be admitted to the graduate program with “Full,” “Conditional,” “Non-degree," or “Transient” graduate standing.
Admission of undergraduate students to the combined 4+1 degree is open only to Mercer students. Graduate study is more rigorous than undergraduate studies and faculty expectations are greater for graduate students than for undergraduates. The school limits enrollment to students whose grade point average after the end of their junior year is equal or greater than 3.2, who have the appropriate undergraduate background for the graduate program they select, and who have been approved by the department chair.
