General Information:

  • Policies and Procedures for Intercollegiate Transfer.
  • Off-Campus Transfer students admitted to majors outside of Grainger Engineering are not eligible to apply.
  • First-Year students directly admitted to Agricultural & Biological Engineering (ACES) and Chemical Engineering (LAS) may use the Grainger Engineering major change process and are not required to first apply to the Pre-Engineering Program or Engineering Undeclared.
  • The Grainger College of Engineering typically expects potential ICT students to have earned grades of B or higher in all technical courses attempted.  Achieving this, however, may not guarantee admission into a specific major, due to the competitiveness of the transfer process.
  • All other students should follow the application procedures below.  The transfer process is competitive.

Application Procedures:

  • For students who entered Illinois prior to summer 2022:
    • Apply to the Pre-Engineering Program (PREP) during your second and/or third semester.
    • The final application cycle to PREP will be open November 15-30, 2022.  Students not admitted to PREP at that time will no longer be eligible for transfer to Grainger Engineering.
    • First-Year students directly admitted to Physics (LAS) may use the Grainger Engineering major change process to apply to Engineering Physics.  Declaring other Grainger Engineering majors requires admission to PREP.
    • First-Year students directly admitted to CS + X majors across campus may use the Grainger Engineering major change process to apply to Computer Science (ENG).  Declaring other Grainger Engineering majors requires admission to PREP.
  • For students entering Illinois summer/fall 2022or later:
    • Apply to Engineering Undeclared (EU) during your second and/or third semester.
    • Applications are accepted twice per year with deadlines in May and December.
    • Computer Science (ENG) is closed to all on-campus transfer.
