Biomedical engineering majors must earn a grade of C- or better in all engineering, mathematics, and science courses, including transfer courses.
After attempting at least six hours within the major, if the cumulative major GPA is below 2.25, the student is placed on probation.
Once on probation, in the next semester(s), the semester major GPA is evaluated. If the semester major GPA is greater than or equal to 2.25, but the cumulative major GPA is below 2.25 the student continues on probation. If the semester major GPA is below 2.25 the student is suspended.
The major grade point average is calculated using all BIOE courses as well as all Engineering Computing XXXX 1331 courses, CHEE 2331 , ECE 2100 , and ECE 2300 , and MECE 3400 . In addition, for those students that choose the Neuroengineering option, the major grade point average will also include ECE 3155 , ECE 3337 , ECE 3355 , ECE 3366 , and ECE 3456 .
Students may petition for readmission to the Cullen College of Engineering through the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs. Readmission is not guaranteed. If readmitted, the student will be on engineering major probation during the semester of readmission. Students must transfer out of engineering after two engineering major suspensions.
