CIV Admissions Frequently Asked Questions

How do I apply to Civil Engineering at Stony Brook University?

We are currently accepting first-time freshman and transfer students in Civil Engineering at Stony Brook University.  When you complete your electronic application, indicate that you would like to be admitted into the Civil Engineering Program.  Admissions into the program are handled by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

How do I gain admission to Civil Engineering if I am an Area of Interest (AOI) student at Stony Brook?

AOI students in good academic standing who were admitted to the University but not immediately accepted into the major may apply for acceptance after they meet the following minimum requirements: 1) completion of at least 10 credits of mathematics, physics, chemistry, and engineering courses required for the major, 2) earned a G.P.A. of 3.0 in all mathematics, physics, chemistry, and engineering courses applicable to major requirements with no less than B-, and 3) completion of course evaluations for all transferred courses that are to be used to meet requirements of the major. Students interested in majoring in civil engineering are encouraged to talk to the Undergraduate Program Director.

How do I gain admission to Civil Engineering if I am in another major at Stony Brook?

Students currently enrolled in another major at Stony Brook University and in good academic standing may apply for acceptance after they meet the following minimum requirements: 1) completion of at least 10 credits of mathematics, physics, chemistry, and engineering courses required for the major, 2) earned a G.P.A. of 3.0 in all mathematics, physics, chemistry, and engineering courses applicable to major requirements with no less than B-, and 3) completion of course evaluations for all transferred courses that are to be used to meet requirements of the major. Students interested in applying for admission are encouraged to talk to the Undergraduate Program Director.

How do I transfer credits to Stony Brook University?

The Undergraduate Transfer Office maintains and publishes a list of courses from other institutions that are deemed equivalent to Stony Brook courses.  Transfer students must fill out the appropriate forms at the Undergraduate Transfer Office in order for their transfer credits appear in their official record. For courses that are not on the list, students should fill out a transfer credit evaluation form in CEAS Undergraduate Student Office. The form will be sent out for transfer credit evaluation to the department that a potentially equivalently course is offered.

I am thinking about adding Civil Engineering as a second major.  Do I still need to complete the major entry requirements?

YES. Even though you may already have one major, to declare a CEAS major you still must complete the major entry requirements and follow the process detailed above under “How do I gain admission to Civil Engineering if I am in another major?” Note: Your CEAS major will always be listed as the primary major, and your other major as the second major.  **Students cannot double major in two programs that lead to BE degrees**
