Transfer Admissions

Q:  Does CEE accept transfer students?
A:  Yes, we accept highly qualified transfer students.
Q:  Do you have a GPA requirement?
A:  Yes, we require a 3.3 GPA or better with A's and B's, no C's in the technical coursework.
Q:  What Courses are required for transfer into CEE?
A: We would like to see MATH 220 or MATH 221, MATH 231, CHEM 102/103, CHEM 104/105, PHYS 211, completed before transfer.  We strongly encourage students to complete TAM 211.
Q:  Can I transfer to CEE as a freshman?
A: Most freshman students are required to stay in their home department for the first year. Students who apply for transfer will need to have the above required courses completed.
Q:  What is the procedure for transferring in to CEE?
A:  Please visit the College of Engineering website – Changing Majors. Complete a portfolio and visit with Becky Stillwell, Academic Advisor ( or 217-333-3812) to discuss your transfer in person. Once your portfolio is completed you must submit your petition form online. If you have questions about the form, please visit 206 Engineering Hall.
Q:  What is the application deadline to transfer?
A: All transfer petitions are to be submitted by November 25 (spring semester) and April 25 (fall semester).  All petitions are reviewed by College of Engineering in 206 Engineering Hall.
Q:  I’m not sure if I want to transfer to CEE.  How can I learn more?
A:  Our CEE Undergraduate Handbook is a great document for learning about the curriculum.  Another good idea is see the Academic Adviser Becky Stillwell or Professor Jim LaFave. In addition, some students may wish to take CEE195, a one-credit class offered in fall semesters that addresses all aspects of civil engineering.
