Prospective Students - Rowan University College of Engineering

Prospective Students

Rowan Engineering, one of the most highly ranked undergraduate programs in the nation, features opportunities for students to work directly with faculty on innovative engineering research from Day One. We are one of the most affordable engineering programs in the nation, and upon graduation, 94% of our students are placed in engineering careers or in prestigious graduate school programs. Unique, affordable, and accessible, Rowan Engineering is on the frontier of engineering education and research - having doubled our faculty and invested over $80 million into our academic and research facilities in the last five years alone.

As a student and future alumnus of Rowan Engineering, you will be part of a prestigious cohort, one that is respected and sought after by entrepreneurial start-up companies, and organizations such as: AECOM, Continental Motors, Exelon, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Inductotherm, Inspira Health Network, Lockheed Martin, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), New Jersey Departments of Environmental Protection and Transportation, Nestle, the United States Navy and more.
 
Also, for Fall 2020, Rowan has made some changes to its admission policies. Students transferring to Rowan from a community college or four-year institution will receive an admissions decision upon Rowan’s receipt of the student’s unofficial transcript, which may be uploaded directly through Rowan’s application portal.

Because many SAT/ACT test dates have been cancelled, high school students applying for admission to Rowan may do so without submitting SAT/ACT test scores and an admission decision will be based on their high school transcript and Common Application. Those students admitted on a test-optional basis will still be considered for merit scholarships.

Rowan will waive the admissions fee for any student facing financial challenges due to the COVID-19 crisis. Finally, while May 1 is unofficially known as National Decision Day – when many students commit to attending the college of their choice – Rowan has always considered that an arbitrary date and welcomes students to commit or confirm enrollment when they can. 
 
Although there are no in-person visits permitted, our students, faculty, and staff are looking forward to interacting with you virutally. If you are interested in virtual visit, please reach out to the appropriate department head. In the meantime, we encourage you use our website as a guide to what we have to offer and don't hesitate to reach out with any questions.
 
Sincerely, 
Dr. Stephanie Farrell
Interim Dean
