Eligibility Requirements


Academic Eligibility

Our typical student is a rising junior (~35%) or senior (~65%) in high school. Talented 9th graders (rising sophomores) may be considered, however, priority will be given to older students. Graduated seniors are also eligible.

Because the Engineering Innovation course is college level course, for a student to be eligible to apply, the student must meet the following requirements:

  • Have As and Bs in their high school math and science classes
  • Successfully completed Algebra II
  • Successfully completed a lab science course (Chemistry and/or Physics).  Many students feel that knowledge of physics is particularly helpful for the course.
  • Successfully completed a course where the trigonometric functions are taught.  To meet the trigonometry prerequisite students, must be able to use the trigonometric functions and be comfortable applying the laws of sines and cosines to non-right angle triangles.  If you learned to use the trigonometric functions in a course other than one called Trigonometry, you will select “Yes, as part of another course” and enter the course name when asked if you have taken Trigonometry on the online application.
