School of Engineering

Undergraduate Programs Admission

The School of Engineering at San Francisco State University requires four years of high school math. (Remedial math courses are available at SFSU for students lacking this requirement.) Students should have one year of high school chemistry and one year of physics, and are encouraged to take one year each of computer courses and mechanical drawing in mechanical and civil engineering.

SFSU applicants must have a high school diploma or GED, or pass the State High School Proficiency Examination. They must have earned a GPA in the 10th, 11th and 12th grades for all classes, except physical education and military science. Applicants with up to eight semesters of honors courses taken in the last two years of high school are granted additional points. They are required to take the SAT I (Scholastic Assessment Test) or ACT (American College Test) if their GPA is less than 3.0. Applicants must complete the CSU Eligibility Index, which is a combination of the high school GPA and scores on the SAT I or ACT. Lastly, they must have completed 15 units of College Preparatory Subjects with a grade of C or better.

International students must have TOEFL scores of 500 (pbt) or 173 (cbt). They must also submit official transcripts with English translations, proof of medical insurance and a certified bank statement.
