  • At least 60 semester credit-hours of work that can be transferred to satisfy Notre Dame engineering degree requirements;
  • Recommendation for admission from the program director for engineering, and the relevant department chair at King's.
  • * Students with a grade-point average between a 3.0 and 3.3 are encouraged to apply to Notre Dame, and will be considered if they have a strong recommendations from the program director and the relevant department chair.

    Applying to Notre Dame ( for students who enroll at King's in Fall 2019 and 2020)

    Students admitted into the 3+2 program between King’s College and the University of Notre Dame must follow the outline progression plan:

    1. Cumulative grade-point average (GPA) of at least 3.6 on a 4.0 scale.
    2. Cumulative technical grade-point average of at least 3.6 on a 4.0 scale (all mathematics, science and engineering courses).
    3. All grades that transfer to ND would be a “B” or better
    4. Must have earned a C or better in all courses

        Academic standing within the engineering program will be reviewed each semester by the Program Director. Admission to the University of Notre Dame or Washington University requires a minimum Overall and Technical GPA after five semesters of college study at King’s College. Students will be reviewed to monitor academic progress, provide tutoring and mentoring, make students aware of opportunities to study at University of Notre Dame and/or Washington University, maintain interest and enthusiasm in their course of study, and to discuss academic alternatives for those who may fail to maintain the required GPA or prescribed course of study.

        The Minimum Progression Requirements include:

        Year

        Fall Semester Spring Semester
