Incoming Freshmen

For freshman applying for Fall 2014, admission to UC San Diego does not guarantee admission to engineering majors at the Jacobs School of Engineering. Due to high demand, all engineering majors at UC San Diego are considered "impacted" for incoming freshman applying for enrollment in Fall 2014, which means additional screening procedures are in place. Admissions for all incoming students to UC San Diego is managed by the campus-wide UC San Diego admissions office which has an impacted majors page.

Transfer Students

For transfer students applying for Fall 2014, the following engineering majors are "impacted," meaning that admission to UC San Diego does not guarantee admission to these majors.

  • Bioengineering
  • Bioengineering: Biotechnology
  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering

For transfer students applying for Fall 2015, all engineering majors are "impacted," meaning that admission to UC San Diego does not guarantee admission to these majors. Admissions for all incoming transfer students to UC San Diego is managed by the campus-wide UC San Diego admissions office which has a transfer admission page.

Continuing Students

Current UC San Diego students who wish to move from a non-engineering major into an engineering major, or from one engineering major to another engineering major, are considered "continuing students." Each engineering major has its own policies for continuing students. More information can be found on individual department websites.
