Admission to the Major Criteria – Bioengineering Program

Incoming first-year students, transfer students, and students changing from a different major may be admitted to the Bioengineering degree program upon completion of MATH 171 with a C or better or concurrent enrollment, and CHEM 105 with a C or better or concurrent enrollment. To remain in the major the student must earn a grade of C or better in all courses and maintain good academic standing (i.e. a 2.0 or higher GPA each term and an overall cumulative GPA of 2.0 at WSU).

Students who are deficient under the University’s Academic Regulations 38 and 39 or whose GPA in Bioengineering courses falls below 2.0 are subject to loss of eligibility of the major. The Bioengineering undergraduate studies committee will determine the eligibility for readmission and probation conditions for students who are deficient and apply for re-entry into the major.
