B.s. Bioengineering

Applying to the B.S. Undergraduate Program in Bioengineering

You may apply to any UC campus with one application, online.

California residents may also obtain an application at their high schools or community colleges.

Admission as a Freshman 
Freshmen applications are accepted for FALL ONLY

Freshman applicants to the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science (HSSEAS) must first meet the minimum eligibility requirements for the University including the subject and scholarship requirements. Official information about UC eligibility requirements may be found athttp://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/admissions/welcome.html. This site also includes the complete UC application form, and information about fees and deadlines.

Because admission to HSSEAS is competitive, merely meeting the minimum eligibility requirements of the University is rarely sufficient for admission to an engineering major. Applicants should possess excellent academic records, and must submit official test results for the SAT I, or ACT, and two SAT II subject tests. Tests should be taken no later than December.

Other academic accomplishments and personal achievements are considered in the admissions decisions. For a detailed description of how UCLA considers these other factors in its review process, please go to: www.admissions.ucla.edu/prospect/adm_fr/FrSel.htm.

Applications must be filed during the month of November for enrollment the following September.

The UCLA Admissions Office maintains an excellent web site for prospective students, that includes admission information, the UCLA General Catalog, graduation statistics, tours, and other information. Important information for international students is also available at the UCLA admissions web site as well.

Admissions as a Junior Transfer

Admission to an engineering major as a junior level transfer is also quite competitive. The University requires applicants to have completed a minimum of 60 transferable semester units (90 quarter units) and two transferable English courses, prior to enrolling at UCLA. In addition, to be considered, all applicants to HSSEAS majors must have at least a 3.2 GPA for their college work. Many of the majors in the School of Engineering and Applied Science are impacted. Excellent grades, especially for courses in preparation for the major, are expected.

For more detail and information on how to apply to our undergraduate program as a Freshmen or Junior Transfer, please go to the HSSEAS Office of Academic and Student Affairs website
