MEP Applicants

Salutations MEP Applicants!

The Maximizing Engineering Potential Program (MEP) would like to congratulate on you on completing the Cal Poly Pomona University Admissions application process thus far!

If you are interested in applying to MEP, the following are dates to keep in mind, as all students who are accepted must attend these events and meet these deadlines:

Math Diagnostic Placement Test, “MDPT” - Prior to June 2014
Eligibility for the MEP program is based on math placement and enrollment. Students must be enrolled in a math class that leads to calculus (statistics would not apply) to proceed with the MEP program in the fall. Therefore, students MUST take the MDPT prior to attending Fall Class Scheduling Workshop (below) or have proof of eligibility for college algebra or above. Having taken AP exams but not having scores by the Fall Class Scheduling Workshop date does NOT constitute proof of eligibility and will not be accepted. Therefore, students waiting on AP scores MUST also take the MDPT prior to the Fall Class Scheduling Workshop.

Fall Class Scheduling Workshop (FCSW) – Late June 2014
FCSW is an opportunity for incoming MEP students to receive advising and assistance prior to the orientation registration process. Students will also have the opportunity meet their incoming freshmen classmates and upper-class engineering students. Topics discussed will include additional detail on MEP activities and services, and pre-orientation advising. FCSW is required in order to get into the courses that correspond with MEP required workshops. Students accepted into the program will be emailed additional information on this event, including the event registration link.

First Orientation – June/July 2014
All students accepted into the MEP program must attend the first orientation of the summer. If you are inserted in MEP, please be sure to keep late June/early July open to attend this orientation. For questions regarding orientation dates, payments and deadlines, please contact Orientation Services at 909/869-3604.

Additional information and complete MEP eligibility, requirements, and acceptance emails will be sent out to student applicants throughout the application process.
