Construction Management - Graduate Program


Unconditional Admission Requirements

NOTE: Performance on the GRE will not be the sole criterion for admitting applicants or the primary criterion to deny admission to either the master's or Ph.D. program. In cases where GRE performance is relatively poor, all other qualifications presented by the applicant will be carefully evaluated for evidence of potential for success.

A student must meet the following requirements for unconditional admission:

  1. A Bachelor's Degree in Civil Engineering (Applicant with an appropriate Bachelor's Degree in another discipline is considered, subject to satisfactory completion of leveling courses).
  2. An undergraduate GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, as calculated by the Graduate School, is typical of a successful applicant.
  3. A Graduate Record Exam (GRE) Quantitative score of 700 (old score system) or 155 (new score system) or higher is typical of a successful applicant.
  4. A Graduate Record Exam Verbal score of 390 (old score system) or 146 (new score system) or higher is typical of a successful applicant.
  5. Non-native English speakers who do not hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree from a regionally accredited U.S. college or university must meet the minimum university English language requirements as detailed in the general admission requirements section of the catalog. However, meeting the minimum requirement does not guarantee admission.  The program will give preference to students with a minimum score of 550 on the written Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), 213 on the computer TOEFL, 79 on TOEFL iBT, 40 on the TSE-A, 50 on the SPEAK, 400 on Verbal GRE, 85 on METLAB (Michigan English Language Assessment Battery), or 6.5 on the IELTS (International English Language Testing System). (METLAB and IELTS are used only when other tests are not available in the applicant’s country.)
