    With the Program Director抯 approval, up to 12 credit hours (4 courses) of non-degree seeking coursework taken at USF may be accepted toward the MSEM degree. Such credits must be at least "B" quality.

    Students admitted to the MSEM program who took graduate courses at other institutions of higher learning may apply for transfer of up to six semester hours. A written application for credit transfer submitted to the Program Advisor during the first semester of MSEM studies must include formal course descriptions as published by the offering institution, class syllabi, and official transcripts with grades "B" or better.

    A baccalaureate degree in Engineering from an ABET accredited institution. Degrees in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Computer Science and other hard science fields may be accepted on an individual basis to meet this requirement. In such cases, additional course work in engineering may be required as part of the program.

    A minimum combined score of 1,000 for the verbal and quantitative portions of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or a minimum grade point average of 3.0 out of a possible 4.0 for all undergraduate work taken during the last two years of the applicant's studies. The GRE score must be no older than five years at the time of application to the program. Taking the GRE is still required.

    At least two years of work experience in engineering or management is required to provide a basis for the graduate studies in Engineering Management. Engineering co-op or internship work experience may count if the work is engineering related. Otherwise, two semesters of internship may be required. A thesis option is also available.

    A letter of recommendation from your current supervisor or manager. If you are not currently employed, a recommendation from your previous employer will do.

    In exceptional cases where the applicant does not meet one of the above entrance requirements, a student may enter the program as a special student. Taking courses as a non-degree seeking student will not guarantee admission into the program. No more than 12 credit hours will be transferred from non-degree seeking status into the degree-seeking program. Providing that the other entrance requirements have then been met with high quality, the Graduate Review Committee will provide the applicant with a list of the courses and performance criteria required for formal admission to the program.

    International students are required to have a minimum score of 550 on the TOEFL test.
    APEX offers courses over the Internet that can be viewed from any computer with a high-speed connection (cable/DSL/LAN capable of 300 kbps download speeds).

    The APEX Materials Coordinator is responsible for handling materials such as exams, homework assignments and term papers which are to be distributed to and collected from students viewing their classes at a remote location. Any materials not posted on the Blackboard system by the instructor should be sent to the FEEDS Materials Coordinator (Jim Manning, jpmannin@eng.usf.edu or 813-974-3783).

    The Materials Coordinator will send homework and other materials not announced in class or posted on Blackboard via e-mail except where very large documents are involved. If you need to download the Adobe Acrobat Reader, a free copy can be found at http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/alternate.html. Any documents that need to be shipped to students are sent via UPS. Exams and are sent to a student抯 proctor one day before their administration except when instructors administer their exams on the Blackboard system.

    If a student is unsure of his or her proctor, he or she should notify the Materials Coordinator immediately. A proctor should be someone from the Human Resources department of the site at which a student is taking his or her exam, the student抯 direct supervisor or a staffer or librarian from a local library. Students cannot use other students or family members as proctors. All new proctors must complete the Affiliate Site Letter of Understanding and fax it to the FEEDS Office (813-974-8010) prior to his or her proctoring of an exam or quiz. Proctors must be present for the entire length of the exam or quiz to insure its proper administration.

    Notification of an upcoming exam is sent out one week prior to its scheduled administration time whenever possible. There is also a schedule of exam dates and times at http://feeds.eng.usf.edu/students/exam_calendar.asp. Please note that while FEEDS presents notification of an upcoming exam whenever possible, it is ultimately up to the student to consult his or her syllabus or instructor if it is unclear when an exam is to take place.

    It is imperative that exams and quizzes are administered at exactly the same time as the class unless prior arrangements have been made between you and the instructor. Alternate schedules must have prior written approval from the instructor. This approval must be sent to the proctor and the Materials Coordinator. This permission should also be attached to your exam when it is sent back to our office. Failure to take an exam or quiz at the designated time may result in exclusion from future FEEDS offerings and/or academic penalties including expulsion.

    Completed homework, projects and papers being returned to a student抯 instructor should be sent back to the Materials Coordinator by either a student or a proctor unless the instructor has stated otherwise. Completed exams and quizzes should be collected and returned by the proctor in the same manner. These materials should be shipped by FedEx, UPS or another similar delivery company that allows for in-transit tracking while en route to FEEDS. Packages should be shipped to:

    FEEDS Studios
    4202 East Fowler Avenue
    ENB 118
    Tampa, FL 33620

    All incoming and outgoing materials are catalogued in our Materials Tracking database to be sure that all materials have been properly transmitted to their appropriate destinations. If a student has any questions about the delivery of a given material, he or she should contact the Materials Coordinator as soon as possible. Graded materials will be sent back to the student抯 proctor. If a student would like to specify another delivery location, the student should notify the Materials Coordinator. A completed FEEDS Materials Coversheet should be attached to all homework and projects sent back to FEEDS.
