Admission to Kettering University is a selective process based on traditional academic criteria. Our admission process is a personal one. We are interested in learning about your interests, talents and career goals! The initial phase in the admission process is an evaluation by Kettering of the candidate's application. Primary consideration is given to the applicant's overall grade point average and overall number of credit hours taken.
Suggested courses for transfer must have a grade of "C" or better for courses to transfer. Transfer students should maintain a 3.0 in college course work with strong math and science grades. See our Course Equivalency System for a dynamic display of courses both approved and not transferable for Kettering University course credit.
Formal agreements and Guide Sheets exist with the colleges and universities below which guarantee incoming students the transfer of listed courses into specific Kettering University programs provided transfer credit policies are met.
Applications are evaluated on a variety of items including overall grade point average, grades and number of credit hours in the math and science courses, overall number of credit hours taken, extracurricular activities, leadership skills, extraordinary circumstances, most recent coursework, and other factors. A typical student should be taking 14 to 16 credit hours per semester of coursework similar to what is taken by a Kettering University student.
