Step 5 is completed by sending official scores from ETS to SDSU (ETS Code: 4682).
Steps 6, 7, and 8 are submitted online via the Interfolio supplemental application.
Step 9: Securing an SDSU faculty advisor is required before an application may be
reviewed. Applicants may contact faculty members directly to inquire if they wish
to serve as their advisor. A listing of faculty, their research, and contact info
can be found on each departmental website:
Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering
Electrical and Computer Engineering
The application and ALL supporting documents as indicated in steps 1 thru 9 above must
