General transfer credit (that is, courses which are not covered in an articualtion agreement for transfer and or are not listed ont he degree plan for a bachelor’s degree at the four-year institution) will generally not apply as credit for a bachelor’s degree in engineering. Please talk to an advisor to clarify.

Students cannot take both ENGR 2301 and ENGR 2303 for credit

Students cannot take both CHEM 1311 and 1411 for credit

It is highly recommended that studends who register for ENGR 2305 also co-register for ENGR 2105 in the same semester.

Note that other engineering, science, or mathematics electives may be approved by the department on a case by case basis. Students should petition for substitution of course requirements if engineering, scienc or mathematics credit is transferred from another institution.
