STEP/TOPICResourcesNotes
Thinking about a college of engineering major? Start Your Exploration Portfolio now

START your exploration portfolio as soon as you are thinking about an engineering major. It is a helpful tool for your exploration process.

If not in PREP and not in ENGR go to http://dgs.illinois.edu/pre-engineeringict

Wondering about the requirements?(soon to come)For Dual degrees, the process starts with the Exploration Portfolio
Ready to Apply?Finalize and Submit Your Application

The Fall 18 application deadline is March 1, 2018 (no Exception).

How do you hear back?You will be notified by Email.An update will also be posted on your application WebApp

NEW COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING ICT/IDT PROCESS:

Who you are

Your College

Process

I joined the UofI as a TRANSFER student in summer 2017 or later

I am in the College of Engineering

Before you start the Portfolio, or consider a change of major within engineering, you MUST see an advisor in 206 ENG HALL. You MUST follow your current program of study in your current major.

I am in another college (non-ENG)

You are not eligible to transfer to an engineering major.

I joined the UofI as a TRANSFER student before summer 2017

I am in the College of Engineering

Change major within the College of Engineering (IDT application)

I am in another college (non-ENG)

Apply to the College of Engineering (ICT application)

I joined the UofI as a FRESHMAN

in summer 2017 or later

I am in the College of Engineering

Before you start the Portfolio, or consider a change of major within engineering, you MUST see an advisor in 206 ENG HALL. You MUST follow your current program of study in your current major.

I am in Pre-Engineering (DGS)

Apply to the College of Engineering (ICT application)

I am in DGS general or in another college (non-ENG) (star)

Apply to Pre-Engineering (DGS) – you are not eligible to directly apply to ENG

see http://dgs.illinois.edu/pre-engineeringict

I joined the UofI as a FRESHMAN before summer 2017

I am in the College of Engineering

Change major within the College of Engineering (IDT application)

I am in another college (non-ENG)

Apply to the College of Engineering (ICT application)

(star) Exceptions: for Students who joined as Freshmen in LAS-PHYS or LAS-CS: LAS-PHYS to ENG-PHYS and LAS-"CS" to ENG-CS will apply directly to ENG (ICT application)

Thinking about an Engineering Major? Start your Exploration Portfolio

Start Your Exploration Portfolio now. When combined with visits to advisors, the Portfolio will be your personal tool to reflect, and ponder on which major best aligns with your interests. A completed Portfolio is required as part of the application process. Curious about what is asked in the Portfolio? Check this!

A few things about the Engineering Exploration Portfolio:

  1. The Specialized GPA only takes into account the foundational MATH, PHYS, CHEM classes taken at the UofI and the ENGINEERING classes taken at the UofI. No worries, advisors will have access to all of your grades when reviewing!
  2. For the "End-Of-Semester" Self-Assessment, use your End-Of-Fall2017 semester (for Mid-Semester, use any current Mid-Of-Spring2018 semester).
  3. Do NOT have two browsers opened on the WebApp, while you edit your answers, or this creates duplicate entries, and can prevent you from submitting your application....

PLEASE NOTE: This transfer application comes with the expectation that you have researched your intended major(s).  Please note the following:

  • This application is only for majors in the College of Engineering. You will need to apply to a different college for other majors (including ChBE, CS + x, and TSM).

  • Apply only to the major(s) you are genuinely interested in.

  • Majors that are high in demand can only be selected as “top choice” in the petition. Currently, these include BIOE, COMPE, CS, EE, ME.

  • Your application will be reviewed according to how you ranked each major (top, then second, then third). You will only be considered for your second (then third) choice if we cannot accommodate you in your first choice.

  • If your application for transfer is approved, we will not consider a future request from you for another transfer.

Advisors are always available to help you explore your options and it is essential you consult with them at any step of your journey. Advisors will be happy to meet with you and discuss your plans, after you explored on your own possible majors, narrowed it down to a few, after you checked the links above regarding majors, course sequence, and transfer requirements. This may answer a LOT of your questions!

  • If you are in PREP, you are in luck; you have your own PREP advisors! If you interested in PREP, check http://dgs.illinois.edu/pre-engineeringict

  • If you started at UofI before FA17 or if you are in ENG already, Meet a college of engineering advisor: we are in 206 Engineering Hall. See all Colleges.

  • Meet with a departmental advisor for the major(s) you are considering. Meet an engineering departmental advisor for the engineering major you are considering.

Wondering about the Classes to take and the Requirements to transfer? Check Resources below

Important Notes about Performance and Potential for engineering:

  • Students with grades below B in technical courses are not good candidates for transfer to Engineering, unless those low performances are amended by retaking the course and earning a higher grade, and as discussed with an engineering advisor (students with more than one grade below B should consider non engineering curricula).

  • Students who do not take technical loads that engineering students take each semester (see the Suggested Sequence for each engineering curriculum) are at risk of lowering their chances for transfer (check the College of Engineering Transfer Requirements).

  • Discuss any special circumstances with your current department/college academic advisor.

NOTE: There will be an ICT/IDT Information Session Feb. 15 or Feb 21 at 5pm-6pm (RSVP please). Students interested in transfer to the college are encouraged to attend. PREP advisors will have Information sessions as well (see http://dgs.illinois.edu/pre-engineeringict).

See Slides from Sept. 2016 Info Session and  Fall 2016 Transfer Statistics

Ready to Apply for Transfer?

Application Process: 

  • The application consists of your name/UIN/Majors you wish to apply to and your Portfolio.

  • While students have the option to indicate up to three engineering majors they wish to apply to, you do NOT need to indicate three majors.

  • When ready to apply, submit your application.

  •  Applying after the deadline will automatically delay your application to the following review period for a later semester- No petition will be possible after 11:59PM. 

Notifications and Decisions:

  • After you Submit Your Petition online, you will receive a confirmation email that your petition is submitted.

  • The Committee reviews all applications after grades are available for the current semester.

  •  Students will be notified of the outcome before the start of the semester they apply to (approximate Notification Dates: July 30th for Fall, January 20th for Spring).

  • (*) Students who are taking their last engineering class(es) in summer in order to be considered for fall Transfer (as previously discussed with an advisor in 206 Engineering Hall) will be informed of the outcome before fall semester starts, after summer grades are available.

Dual Degrees (one in the College of Engineering)

  • Engineering students who want to apply for an engineering secondary major will:

  • Non-engineering students who want to apply for an engineering secondary major will:

    • Notify their current college of their intentions (additional paperwork within current college is likely necessary). 

    • Apply for ICT.

    • Register here for Dual Degree.

  • College of Engineering students who had to change College for their secondary major - i.e. who had to transfer out of the college of engineering for one year- do not need to re-apply for ICT for their primary major in engineering, but instead fill out this Form and meet an advisor in 206 Engineering Hall.

Dual Degrees (College of Engineering+ILEE)

  • Engineering students who want to apply for the ILEE dual degree will find all information at this Link (you will need an updated resume, an Application ILEE Portfolio and a plan of study). Make sure to also Register here for Dual Degree after you have been accepted.

Register for ENG 101 "Engineering at Illinois"

Engineering At Illinois is an introduction to undergraduate programs of study available in the College of Engineering and the potential careers of graduates of those programs. The course is aimed at students who may be interested in an Engineering major. This is a 1-hour course offered in fall semesters. Please consult the Course Schedule for more details.
