Civil Engineering (B.S.C.E.)
To graduate in this program, a grade of 'C' or better is required in all math, science, and engineering courses used to fulfill degree requirements. Students may accumulate no more than 14 credit hours of 'D' or 'F' in math, science, or engineering courses. Included in this number are multiple repeats of a single class or single repeats of multiple classes, as well as courses transferred from other institutions. Students who exceed 14 credits of 'D' or 'F' will be permanently disqualified from pursuing the B.S. degree in Civil Engineering at the University of Idaho. To complete this degree, all students must show proof of registering for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam.
