Admissions

General Requirements

Applicants should have a bachelors degree in engineering from an ABET accredited program.  Those who have an undergraduate degree from a non-ABET accredited engineering program or in a closely related technical field, such as computer science or physics, will be considered for admission based on their college work and an appropriately proposed plan of study. 

To apply to the Graduate School of Engineering, you must submit the following materials:

  • A completed online application (including a $25 application fee).
  • Official transcripts from the college or university that granted your bachelors degree and any other institutions attended before or after that time.  A cumulative GPA of 3.0 is required for admission; however, students with a GPA below 3.0 may be admitted on probation.    
  • Two letters of recommendation from employers or professors who supports you in your decision to earn your masters degree.
  • GRE test scores that were issued within the last five years.  These scores must indicate at least a 155 on the quantitative section and a 3.0 on the writing section.  This requirement can be waived if your cumulative undergraduate GPA is 3.25 or greater or you have 5+ years of documented engineering work experience.

Undergraduate engineering students at OC may be accepted into the graduate program during their senior year as part of a five-year Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Engineering (BS/MSE) program, provided that all other admission requirements are met.  Students who are not seeking admission to the MSE degree program, but are instead registering for classes as a special student, visitor from another university, or only to audit courses, are not required to submit GRE scores or official transcripts.

All domestic applicants should mail their MSE application materials to Mary Ann Brown, Program Director of the Graduate School of Engineering, Oklahoma Christian University, PO Box 11000, Oklahoma City, OK 73136-11000.
