Applying to your major


Students seeking admission to Aerospace Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Computer Science Engineering/Computer Information Science, and Mechanical Engineering must indicate one of these pre-majors when initially applying to Ohio State on the Common Application. Only students in these pre-majors may apply to their respective major. For example, a student who is seeking admission to the Biomedical Engineering major will only be able to do so if they are pre-Biomedical Engineering at the time of application. 

All students will select and apply to three majors of interest (ranked in order of preference), during the semester that eligibility courses are completed, which generally occurs during the second semester of enrollment. ). We encourage students to thoughtfully explore all available engineering majors. You can find information on application deadlines, processes, and requirements by visiting Admission to Major | Engineering Advising ( Please contact your academic advisor if you have additional questions or concerns.

The process requires students to verify their coursework and respond to a few short essay prompts (about 250 words each). Students will address their interest in the three selected majors, their experiences working with teams, and their life experiences influencing their desire to pursue engineering.
