If an engineering baccalaureate program isn’t available at your four-year Colorado public institution, you might be interested in transferring to the CU-Boulder College of Engineering and Applied Science. We encourage you to explore our 13 undergraduate programs.
(NOTE: If you are planning a transfer from a Colorado Community College, please see specific guidelines on community college transfer.)
We offer guaranteed admission to transfer students from Colorado public institutions who meet specific criteria. If you meet the guaranteed admission criteria along with a minimum GPA of at least 3.80, you will also receive a transfer student scholarship towards your first year of attendance.
If you do not qualify for guaranteed admission, please see the competitive transfer criteria for the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
In addition to our 13 undergraduate programs on the Boulder campus, are you aware that you can earn an engineering degree from CU-Boulder on the Western Slope? If not, you should check out the Colorado Mesa University/CU-Boulder Mechanical Engineering Partnership Program in Grand Junction.
In addition to your math, science and engineering coursework, each major in the College of Engineering and Applied Science requires at least 18 credit hours in humanities, social sciences, and writing in order to graduate (note that some majors require more credit hours in this area). For more information regarding these courses, please refer to the official College of Engineering and Applied Science Humanities/Social Sciences/Writing (HSS) page.
If you are planning a transfer from the CU-Denver or CU-Colorado Springs campus, you may wish to refer to the course-by-course equivalency table published in the College’s section of the University Catalog.
You may find it useful to use www.transfer.org to see how courses at your institution will transfer in to CU-Boulder.
If you have specific curriculum questions about any of our majors, we strongly encourage you to contact an advisor in your intended major department.
