Majors Under Enrollment Control

Enrollment Controls

Due to limited resources and a commitment to provide quality instruction, some majors in the College of Engineering are under enrollment control, which means that only a limited number of students can be admitted to these majors. Students in pre-major (ENGR) status are expected to know their Entrance-to-Major (ETM) pool and the majors under enrollment control for their ETM pool.

The Engineering Advising Center (EAC) serves as the academic advising resource for students in pre-major status (ENGR) at University Park. Once students have been admitted to a College of Engineering major, they will be assigned to a faculty adviser in that major.
