Applications received by March 13, 2015 will be notified with decisions by early April. 

A pathway to guaranteed admission to the College of Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

This new program will facilitate transfer, minimize duplication of instruction and build on community college and university learning experiences. To qualify, students must complete a specified list of equivalent courses at COD, maintaining a 3.3 GPA in these courses and a 3.2 cumulative GPA for all classes taken at COD. Students must also enroll full-time (12 or more semester hours).

Specific course requirements are outlined for intended majors in 13 programs:

  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Agricultural and Biological Engineering
  • Civil and Environmental Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Engineering Mechanics
  • Engineering Physics
  • General Engineering
  • Industrial Engineering
  • Materials Science
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Nuclear, Plasma and Radiological Engineering
     

College of DuPage will assign each student with a transfer advisor to assist with course selection and registration, as well as offer general guidance until his or her transfer to UIUC.

    "Unlike most universities, the professors I have at COD actually care to hear our input and make sure we understand the material we are learning. Due to this fact, I am having much more academic success than my friends who chose to go to a four-year university."
