In addition to the Penn Engineering requirements, undergraduate applicants must 1) include a personal statement (1 page or less) along with their application; 2) have a minimum cumulative STEM GPA of 3.2 in order to apply. Your application form and personal statement may then be submitted to Colleen Kennedy via email at email@example.com, to start the review process
Students that entered Penn as an undergraduate in Fall 2017 or earlier fall under all Submatriculation rules. Students who entered undergraduate in Fall 2018 or later, adhere to Accelerated Master’s rules. Please review our FAQ page for more information.
For students completing their undergraduate degree at Penn and enrolled in a master’s degree as a Submatriculant or Accelerated Master’s student, please note undergraduate status supersedes graduate status. All courses will appear on the student’s undergraduate transcript while still enrolled as an undergraduate. The graduate degree cannot be conferred until all coursework for the undergraduate degree is complete. Additionally, all coursework for the master’s degree must be completed at Penn – no transfer credit, advanced standing, study abroad, or study away courses will be accepted. Undergraduate coursework should be completed in eight semesters as a submatriculant; it must be completed in eight semesters under the accelerated master’s. The only exception is for coordinated dual-degree students in M&T and VIPER where students must complete and graduate with both undergraduate degrees in their first ten semesters.
Full information on Submatriculation and the Accelerated Master’s (Fall 2018 and later) can be found on the Engineering Undergraduate Submatriculation page.
Students external to Penn: Students at Bryn Mawr College and Haverford College may apply to the Accelerated Master’s 4+1 program. Full information on this program can be found here.
