A minimum grade point average of 3.0 in all courses taken at the University of Maryland and all other institutions is required for internal and external transfer students.
Completion of MATH 141 with minimum grade of B- or better.
Completion of PHYS 161 with a minimum grade of B- or better.
Completion of either CHEM 135 or CHEM 271 or CHEM 134 with a minimum grade of C- or better. (Students who take CHEM 134 must also complete CHEM 131 with a C-).
Limited Enrollment Programs guidelines:
Only one gateway or performance review course may be repeated to earn the required grade and that course may only be repeated once. When more than one course can satisfy a gateway requirement, taking a second course from the list will count as a repeat. (Please note that a grade of "W" is considered an attempt and must be repeated).
Students may apply only once to an LEP.
Students must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00 after admission to an LEP. Failure to do so will result in dismissal from the major.
The internal transfer student application due by the 5th business day of the month as follows:
Spring semester admission: January
Fall semester admission: June*
*Please note: Students are able to complete a gateway requirement course during the summer at either University of Maryland or another institution. In order to be considered, students must still meet the June application deadline and courses must be taken during the University of Maryland’s Summer 1 Session.
Once you have submitted your application electronically and your application has been reviewed, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions will send you an admission decision via email instructing you of your next steps.
Engineering students tend to have a strong background in science and mathematics; however, continuous education in these fields is required for a successful future. We recommend you start your path to a successful career by exploring all of the majors available to you. Please begin by watching a virtual information session
Students are also encouraged to attend a Transfer Information Session
. This one hour information session will guide prospective students through the transfer process, give an in-depth explanation of the Clark School's nine majors, and share with you academic, professional, and extra-curricular opportunities at the University of Maryland. For details, please see the Transfer Students' Information Sessions Registration Form
The structure of each engineering program is unique, with courses being offered in a variety of sequences (some more lockstep than others). In order to learn more about the requirements for the major you are applying for, please review the following departmental websites:
