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.

"I have always wanted to create my own gadgets and code my own programs and web sites. If I am lucky enough to have a successful career, I want to help minorities and people from developing countries like my own to pursue engineering and math degrees. I believe minorities are underrepresented in the science fields and it is very important for diverse perspectives to be involved in the developing of new technology.”Read Spotlight

"The fact that College of DuPage has a direct transfer program into U of I engineering is a testimony to the quality of the Engineering program at COD. The Engineering program at COD is just as good as, if not better than, most four-year institutions."Read Spotlight

"COD's Pathways to Engineering program is helping me get the right education that I need for my career, as well as the phenomenal opportunity to automatically transfer to UIUC for engineering, which was my otherwise number one choice for college."Read Spotlight

"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."Read Spotlight
