Pre-professional programs admission

New students, including transfer students, should submit the standard application form directly to the Office of Admissions. The admission criteria are the same as those for the university and the College of Engineering.

Any student who has completed more than 15 credit hours at Kansas State University in any major outside the Department of Architectural Engineering and Construction Science may change majors into either pre-professional program provided that the student has a resident cumulative GPA of 2.3 or better.

Admission to the professional programs

There are two distinct and separate pre-professional programs within the department: the pre-professional architectural engineering program and the pre-professional construction science and management program, each containing different course requirements. Other than course requirements specific to each program, the general procedures for acceptance into the respective professional program are similar and are described in the following paragraphs.

The pre-professional students must complete the first portion of the program prior to taking any upper-division professional program courses.

An application to the professional program must be submitted to the Department of Architectural Engineering and Construction Science by the end of the eighth week of either the spring or fall semester. This submission will be immediately prior to the student’s pre-enrollment into any of the upper-division professional program courses. All courses in the lower-division pre-professional program core of the program of application, valid at the time the student entered the university, must be completed and all grade criteria must be met by the end of the semester that the application is submitted. An exception to this rule is the student who expects to complete these criteria during the summer semester at KSU. Those students should also make application in the spring semester prior to pre-enrollment. All eligible applicants will be allowed to pre-enroll into professional program courses with the understanding that they will be dropped if they do not complete the requirements for admission to the professional program prior to the beginning of the subsequent semester. Applications will be reviewed by the department’s Academic Affairs Committee and accepted or rejected as soon as possible after semester grades are issued.

Pre-professional course requirements

Applicants must meet the following criteria for admission to the professional program of the curriculum as follows. Students must have:

  1. Achieved a GPA of 2.3 or better in all of the courses in the lower-division pre-professional program core and courses which apply to the professional program, and;
     
  2. Earned a grade of credit (CR) in a departmental seminar for each semester that the applicant was enrolled in the lower-division pre-professional program core, and;
     
  3. Completed the following courses (or equivalent) with grades of C or better:

None of the above courses in math, chemistry, or physics may be repeated more than once, with the exception of MATH 220.

  1. Met the academic grade policy standards. A letter grade of C or better is required for all prerequisites prior to taking subsequent pre-professional program courses.

Academic Standards

After admission to the Professional Program, students will be subject to the following academic standards that are more stringent than those for the university.

  1. Academic grade policy
    A letter grade of “C” or better is required for all prerequisites prior to taking subsequent professional program courses.
     
  2. Warning of unsatisfactory progress
    Regardless of the overall GPA, a student with any “D” or “F” grade in any semester or who has a semester GPA below 2.3 will receive a “Warning of Unsatisfactory Progress. This warning will be removed if the student earns “C’s” or better in at least 12 credit hours of core courses with no “D’s” or “F’s” during the next semester in residence.

    A student whose cumulative resident GPA drops below a 2.3 will receive a “Warning of Unsatisfactory Progress.”  This warning will be removed if the student raises his or her cumulative resident GPA to 2.3 or above during the following semester.
     
  3. Professional Program Probation for Unsatisfactory Progress
    Regardless of the overall GPA, a student who has received a “Warning of Unsatisfactory Progress” will also be placed on Professional Program Probation for Unsatisfactory Progress if he or she receives a “D” or “F” or earns below a 2.3 semester GPA for any subsequent term, including any summer session.

    A student whose cumulative resident GPA has dropped below 2.3 and has received a “Warning of Unsatisfactory Progress” will also be placed on “Professional Program for Unsatisfactory Progress” if he or she does not raise his or her cumulative resident GPA to 2.3 or above during the “Warning of Unsatisfactory Progress” semester. A student placed on Professional Program Probation may not automatically enroll in any Department of Architectural Engineering and Construction Science courses.

    The student may remain in the Professional Program after the probationary semester provided that the student has demonstrated the ability and desire to meet the criteria as set forth in the above paragraphs. The student placed on probation must take the schedule of courses assigned by the Academic Affairs Committee of the department, and achieve a minimum GPA of 2.3 or greater, OR a minimum GPA as established by the Academic Affairs Committee, with no “D” or “F” grades, during the “probationary semester” to be eligible to remain in the Professional Program and to take Professional Program courses.

    Any appeal for removal of this probation may be made by filing an appeal form with the Department Head of Architectural Engineering and Construction Science at least ten calendar days prior to the first day of the semester. The Department Head may reject any application or may submit it to the Academic Affairs Committee for consideration. Any and all actions on applications submitted by the Department Head will be made by the Academic Affairs Committee of the Department in a hearing in which the student will be interviewed.
     
  4. Dismissal from the Program

    If a probationary student meets the requirements to remain in the Professional Program, any subsequent grade of “D” or “F” or a term GPA below a 2.3 during any subsequent term will result in dismissal from the Professional Program for a period of one year.  During this period, the student cannot enroll in any courses offered by the department. After the one-year dismissal, the student may be readmitted to the program with their course schedule and grade point to be earned to be to be established by the Academic Affairs/Professional Program Committee of the department. Failure to meet the academic standards outlined above in any ensuing term or failure to comply with the academic committee’s direction will result in permanent dismissal from the programs of the department.

    **The warning, probation, and dismissal actions referenced above are departmental actions that are separate and distinct from Academic Warning and Academic Dismissal as defined by the University Catalog. Grades earned during an intersession will not be considered by the Department in the determination of unsatisfactory academic progress by the department.
