Students Transferring Within the University
Academic AdvisingNPRE ILLINOIS welcomes talented transfer students. Transfer cases may be inter-departmental, where the student is already enrolled in Engineering at Illinois, or may be cases where the student is enrolled in another college. In both scenarios, Engineering at Illinois oversees the transfer process with input provided by the department. (Visit the Engineering at Illinois Undergraduate Advising for guidelines on the transfer procedures.) In all cases, prospective transfers to NPRE ILLINOIS should be strong in math and physics with a committed interest in the major.
Students who are considering a possible transfer to NPRE ILLINOIS should:
- Go to Engineering Academic Affairs (206 Engineering Hall) to meet with a dean for advising on pursuing a transfer. This is not a commitment to transfer but an initial evaluation of your prospects for transfer and will provide general advice related to the transfer.
- Look at the NPRE ILLINOIS Curriculum and start taking the required math and physics classes. Review the NPRE Curriculum to understand the degree requirements and what courses you will be taking in the program.
- Schedule an appointment with an NPRE advisor in Talbot Laboratory by calling 217-333-2295 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Expect to discuss your interest in the major, to review your courses taken and grades received, and to plan for classes should the transfer be made.
- Transfers are considered on an individual basis, but in general the NPRE ILLINOIS adviser is looking for a pattern of academic performance that would predict the student would be successful in a technical curriculum. A student with a B average and demonstrated success defined by receiving primarily A's and B's in math, physics and other technical courses while taking a regular semester load may be a successful transfer candidate. Students with grades below B in technical courses may not be good candidates for transfers to NPRE ILLINOIS unless those low performances are amended by retaking the course and earning a higher grade.
