Admission to Program at DU

Admission to the joint engineering program at Dominican does not guarantee admission to the Illinois Institute of Technology.

Most joint-program students will need to apply separately to IIT during their sophomore year. Some will apply during their freshman year. 

Initial Admission Criteria 

Enrollment in MATH 261 or higher and:

  • CHEM 120 for Chemistry/Chemical Engineering majors
  • PHYS 221 for all other majors.

Additional Criteria

Students must earn a grade of B or better in all required courses in the core disciplines, including:

  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Computer Science

If a student earns a grade lower than a B in any of the above courses, the student’s status will be changed to probationary. Admission to the program will be revoked if the student fails to improve in subsequent semesters. During the first four semesters students also must maintain an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher.

We encourage all students to seek academic support immediately if they suspect they may be facing academic difficulties.
