Welcome! We are pleased that you are considering transferring to the College of Engineering and Applied Science at CU-Boulder.
You can find information here about our admissions criteria and guidelines for the transfer of credit from another school.
Students wishing to switch in to the College of Engineering and Applied Science from another college/school on the Boulder campus should complete an Intra-University Transfer (IUT) application. With appropriate course selection and satisfactory academic performance during your first few semesters, it is possible to stay on track with the engineering curriculum and graduate in a timely manner.
First-year students in the College of Arts and Sciences who are interested in transitioning into the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences can join the Pre-Engineering Program, offering a structured pathway of CU-Boulder course work applicable to engineering requirements as well as academic advising support from both colleges.
If you are considering transferring from another public institution in Colorado (either a community college or a 4-year institution), you will want to look over the Statewide Engineering Articulation Agreement, the Guaranteed Admission Criteria for Colorado Transfers, and the UCB Course Matrix.
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 section of the University Catalog.
