    3. Transfer Course Work

    A student may transfer a maximum of 66 semester hours, limited to lower-division courses, from two-year junior or community colleges. A maximum of 100 semester hours of courses is transferable from accredited U.S. colleges and universities. Transfer credit for engineering courses is restricted to ABET-accredited curricula or is awarded on the basis of departmental recommendation. Transfer students may be required to take competency exams and/or take specified courses that the department feels they must have in order to establish the quality of their degree. Credit for upper division engineering courses will be given only on the basis of departmental recommendation.

    The academic records of all transfer students are reviewed by the College of Engineering to determine eligibility for admission into an engineering program. International students must meet the additional requirement of an overall minimum GPA of 3.0 in mathematics, chemistry, physics, and engineering for all institutions attended.

    All transfer credit that is to be applied toward undergraduate engineering degree requirements must be evaluated and approved by the Dean of Engineering. Transfer credit evaluation should be done when the student transfers to the College or before completion of the lower-division requirements.
