Admission Requirements

The IEE Certification Program is competitive, and students are encouraged to successfully complete the admission requirements for the IEE Certification Program before they invest in coursework.

To be admitted, students must show evidence of:

  1. An overall GPA of 2.80 or higher (4.0 representing A), as evidenced through a copy of most recent Rutgers transcript. Post- baccalaureate students can provide an official transcript from their undergraduate degree granting institution showing a 2.8 or higher overall GPA. *Please consult the IEE for questions about this requirement.
  2. Minimum scores on one of the following Praxis Exams:

           Praxis I: Academic Skills Assessments (PPST®): Reading, 177; Writing, 177; Mathematics, 175


           Praxis CORE: Reading, 156; Writing, 162; Mathematics, 150

PLEASE NOTE: There are no exceptions to the entrance requirements.

Students who obtained a baccalaureate degree from Rutgers need to apply for re-enrollment through the Office of Academic Advising, not the Admissions Office. Returning Rutgers students will note that their grade point average is adjusted as additional courses are taken.

Students who obtained a baccalaureate degree from another institution must apply through the Admissions Office and obtain a transcript evaluation of previous courses.

Once a student has met the requirements for program admission, he/she should schedule an appointment for admission to the IEE Certification Program.
