Transfer Student Information

Engineering  |  Civil Engineering  |  Electrical Engineering  |  Mechanical Engineering

There are two primary paths for students to enter the program: Transfer from a two or four year institution, and by registering with WIU Engineering and one of our partner colleges. Students seeking admission to the Engineering program must satisfy general university admissions requirements and register with both WIU and one of our partner colleges unless all such requirements have been met. Contact the School of Engineering and Technology for more details. Transfer students seeking credit for required math, science and engineering core courses must have earned a grade of "C" or better in all such courses to receive full credit.

The Transfer Planning Guide shows the Illinois Articulation Initiative standard course numbers common in most pre-engineering programs, the WIU course number equivalent, and the equivalent course number at the various community colleges. The information is subject to change at any time. You can also check the Transferology website for additional information.

The staff of the School of Engineering and Technology is more than happy to help you with questions, so please don't hesitate to call.
