Engineering Transfer Guides

Engineering degrees vary significantly by discipline and vary slightly between institutions for the first two years of coursework. Below are guides that provide the course flow sequence for each major and the transferability of each course to the Illinois institutions offering that major.

Unofficial Engineering Guides for Select Universities

These guides show the entire four-year sequence including COD coursework with university equivalents and prerequisite sequencing for the majors provided.

Northern Illinois University (NIU)

University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC)

Unofficial Social Science/Humanities Transfer Guide

Approximately six Social Science/Humanities courses are required for the baccalaureate degree. Since only up to four can be counted toward the AES degree, the AES degree is not sufficient to fulfill your general education requirements at your transfer institution. Therefore, it is extremely important to take courses that will transfer into the correct categories at your final institution. Use this guide to help in selecting social science and humanities courses.

Foreign Language Requirements

A foreign language is required only at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). No other engineering programs in Illinois require a foreign language. The requirement at UIUC is for three years of a single foreign language in high school or the equivalent in college. Note that college credit may not be applied toward degree requirements at UIUC or COD.
