Regents' Engineering Pathway Program
The Regents' Engineering Pathway Program (REP Program) - allows prospective engineering students to take approximately the first two years of the engineering curriculum at a designated "first" institution and, upon successful completion of all required course work, transfer to one of 5 engineering institutions (Georgia Southern University, Georgia Tech, Kennesaw State University, Mercer University, University of Georgia) in the state to complete the last two years of the engineering degree. Also, non-resident students and Georgia residents who are interested in the engineering programs at other universities may take the same course of study as the REP Program students and then transfer to the school of their choice.
Students may attend Georgia Southern University as a "first" institution for approximately two years of course work and then transfer to one of four "second" institutions in the state that offer engineering degrees (Georgia Tech, Kennesaw State University, Mercer University, University of Georgia). This is most often the case when students intend to major in programs such Biomolecular, Chemical, or Nuclear Engineering which are not available at Georgia Southern. Students may attend any of the REPP partnering "first" institutions in the state and then transfer to Georgia Southern University "second" institution to complete their engineering degree.
Admission and Completion Requirements for REP Program
Current Georgia Southern Students Who Wish to Enter the REP Program
Current Georgia Southern students are defined as those who are currently enrolled at Georgia Southern in another academic major. Transfer students are those who have taken a college or university course after graduating from high school from a college or university other than Georgia Southern. In either case, such a student cannot be considered for freshman admission. To be accepted into the REP Program, current Georgia Southern students and transfer students must complete the following requirements:
- A minimum of 30 semester hours of college course work with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.00,
- Calculus I (MATH 1441) and Calculus II (MATH 2242) with grades of at least “B” (3.00 GPA),
- Comprehensive General Chemistry (CHEM 1310) or Principles of Chemistry I (CHEM 1211K) and Principles of Physics I (PHYS 2211K) with grades of at least “B” (3.00 GPA).
Transfer Admission from an REP Program Institution to Georgia Southern University
Students who wish to enter Georgia Southern's REP Program must satisfy their first (sending) institution's requirements and the CEC REP Program admission requirements, apply for admission to Georgia Southern University, and request a recommendation from the first institution's REP Program Coordinator.
Transfer Admission from Georgia Southern University to Another REP Program Institution
Georgia Southern students who wish to apply to a second (receiving) institution that offers engineering degrees as a REP Program student must first satisfy the second institution's requirements, apply for admission to the receiving institution, and request a recommendation from the CEC REP Program Coordinator.
