Transfer Student Admissions


Welcome! We are excited that you are interested in studying either Electrical or Computer Engineering at the University of Utah.

You are in good company! Over half of our undergraduate students transferred to the University of Utah from another institution. We highly value the diverse perspectives that transfer students bring to our program and community, and we are glad you are considering joining us to complete your Bachelor’s degree. Should you have any questions after looking through this page, feel free to contact the Academic Advisor for the major that you are interested in.

What Should You Do Next?

  1. Apply to the University of Utah as a Transfer Student.
  2. Submit all transcripts from previous institutions to the U Office of Admissions. Provide an authenticated translation where necessary.
  3. Choose your program of study. You can view the sample plans for Electrical and Computer Engineering degrees on our advising page.
  4. Once you receive a statement of accepted transfer classes, complete a Transfer Petition for any out of state courses so that we can look at what you have already completed (we will not be able to do this until you have been accepted as a student by the U Office of Admissions). You can use the articulation sheets below to know which courses align with U of U courses if your previous institution is listed.
  5. Apply for major status through the pre-major process during the semester in which you are completing the required pre-major classes. If you already completed the pre-major classes at your previous institution, you may apply immediately.
  6. Apply for College of Engineering scholarships by February 1 (you do not need to be admitted to the major yet). And be sure to search University of Utah scholarship database for other scholarships (deadlines vary; apply to the U by March 1st to be automatically considered for merit and diversity scholarships; for need-based scholarships, submit FAFSA by February 1 priority deadline)
  7. Pay your enrollment deposit and attend New Student Orientation.

If you are transferring from any of the following schools:

BYU-Idaho, College of Eastern Utah, Dixie State College, LDS Business College, Salt Lake Community College, Snow College, Southern Utah University, Utah State University, Utah Valley University, Weber State University, and Westminster College, then you can use our articulation sheets or Transferology. A majority of your courses should be pre-articulated.

Transferring from SLCC?
