Transfer Student Requirements to Enter the College of Engineering

Transfer students pursuing the major of Information Technology, please see the admission details located in the flowchart and curriculum guide for the Information Technology major.

Transfer students pursuing an engineering major or computer science must:

  1. Be admitted fully to the University of South Florida as a degree-seeking student with more than 30 earned credits.
  2. Have completed all of the following courses with a grade of C or better (not C-) in each course (maximum two {2} attempts allowed to earn required grade and a withdrawal is considered an attempt): Calculus  I (MAC X281 or MAC X311 or equivalent), Calculus  II (MAC X282 or MAC X312 or equivalent), and Calculus-based Physics I with lab (PHY X048 or PHY X045 and PHY X048L or PHY X045L or equivalent)

Students who do not meet these admissions requirements must declare a major outside of the College of Engineering but may attempt to meet these transfer admission requirements in no more than two (2) attempts per course while at USF. If a grade of C is not attained in each of these courses in two or less attempts, the student cannot declare a major within the College of Engineering.

Additional requirements must be met prior to admission to specific degree programs.  These requirements may be found in the Undergraduate Catalog and on our major flowcharts and curriculum guides.
