Prospective Undergraduate Students: Transfer Students

The Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering admits qualified transfer students who have completed an Associate in Arts degree at a Florida public community or state college. Students seeking admission from other universities or out-of-state schools may be considered for admission on a space available basis. Transfer students are admitted in Fall, Spring, and Summer C terms. Transfer students who are admitted to UF as non-engineering majors generally cannot change their major to engineering.

Please visit these links for more information on incoming student transfers.

Students may transfer to the MAE Department from a variety of other programs, including other departments at UF, other universities and community colleges. The following general criteria are used to evaluate students for transfer admission:

  1. A minimum 2.0 overall GPA (see note below)
  2. A minimum 2.5 GPA in critical tracking courses
  3. A grade of C or better in each critical tracking course (max of two attempts in each course).  Our critical tracking courses are:
  4. CHM2045 Chemistry 1
  5. Science Elective (BSC2010, CHM2046/2096, PHY3101 or AST3018/3019)
  6. MAC2311 Analytical Geometry and Calculus 1
  7. MAC2312 Analytical Geometry and Calculus 2
  8. MAC2313 Analytical Geometry and Calculus 3
  9. MAP2302 Differential Equations
  10. PHY2048 Physics 1 (with calculus)
  11. PHY2049 Physics 2 (with calculus)

Special Notes for Community College Transfers

Florida Community College transfer students should have completed at least 6 of the 8 critical tracking courses prior to applying to UF, and must complete all 8 critical tracking courses as well as the AA degree prior to enrolling at UF.  We encourage community college transfer students to apply during their last semester of study before earning the AA degree.

Note: MAE admission criteria are subject to revision without notice.  Typical GPAs for accepted transfer students are in excess of 3.5 overall.
