Engineering, Science and Technology Entrepreneurship Excellence (Esteem) Program

The University of Notre Dame and Saint Anselm College

The University of Notre Dame and Saint Anselm College agree to participate in  a collaborative liberal arts and engineering, science and technology entrepreneurship program. Each student successfully completing the core program will receive the Bachelor of  Arts degree  (B.A.) in an approved curriculum from Saint Anselm, and the Master of Science in Engineering, Science and Technology Entrepreneurship degree (M.S.) from Notre Dame in a curriculum sponsored by the College of Engineering, College of Science and Mendoza College of Business (ESTEEM Program).

Each student in the program will attend Saint Anselm for the first four years and must complete a prescribed academic program defined by the two institutions. The student should apply for admission to Notre Dame by June 30 of the summer immediately following the junior year for admission to the ESTEEM  Program. The application materials must include transcripts covering the first six semesters at Saint Anselm.

The student  applying  for admission  to the ESTEEM  Program must be making good progress in satisfying Saint Anselm’s academic requirements for a B.A. in any major housed in the departments of  biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics or computer science.  For conditional acceptance into the program the student must meet the following criteria:

  1. Cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale through six semesters and at graduation from Saint Anselm;
  2. A grade of at least C in all courses;
  3. Recommendation for admission by the relevant department chair at Saint Anselm;
  4. Completion of the online application for the ESTEEM program by June 30 of the summer immediately following the junior year.

The ESTEEM program director at Notre Dame will evaluate the student’s application and make a conditional admission decision by August 31 following the student’s junior year at Saint Anselm. The conditions to admission will be removed upon meeting the following criterion:

  1. Cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale at graduation from Saint Anselm
  2. Completion of all requirements for the bachelor’s degree at Saint Anselm;
  3. Completion of the GRE exam with a score of at least 550 on the verbal and 600 on the quantitative;

Saint Anselm students also have the option to complete the current 3-2 Program between Notre Dame and Saint Anselm and then proceed to the ESTEEM M.S. program (3-2-1 Program). Admission requirements for this option are the same as for the 3-2 program with the following additional requirements:

  1. Cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.00 or better while in the 3-2 program at Notre Dame and upon graduation from Notre Dame;
  2. Completion of all requirements for the bachelor’s degree at Notre Dame;
  3. Completion of the GRE exam with a score of at least 550 on the verbal and 600 on the quantitative;
  4. Completion of the online application for the ESTEEM program by November 30 of the junior year of studies at Saint Anselm (the year preceding their first year at Notre Dame).

The 3-2 program director at Notre Dame and the ESTEEM program director will separately evaluate the student’s application and make an admission decision (conditional or non-conditional depending on actual decision) by March 31 of the student’s junior year at Saint Anselm. A student may be admitted to both the 3-2 and ESTEEM programs, or one or the other, and it will be the student’s decision whether to accept admission to Notre Dame under those terms.

The student who has satisfied these criteria can normally expect to be admitted to full standing and complete Notre Dame’s M.S. degree requirements in one calendar year (two semesters plus one summer) after receiving the bachelor’s degree.

Upon admission to Notre Dame, students in the program receive the same consideration for scholarships and other types of financial aid as other applicants to the University. Students adhering to the financial aid application procedures will be considered for assistance within the policies consistently applied to all other Notre Dame students except as may be restricted by appropriate government regulations.

Reserve Officer Training Corps Programs

Students attending Saint Anselm College may enroll in either the Army Reserve Officer Training Program or the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Program, both located at the University of New Hampshire. No academic credit is given by Saint Anselm College for ROTC courses, but the courses may be included on the College transcript.
