Can I transfer in the UN classes?

Yes, you can transfer in the UN (University Wide) gen ed classes.  The equivalent courses are as follows:

UN 1015 Compositions – English comp 1

UN 1025 Global Issues – World history, Comparative religion, or Western civilization

It is *extremely* important that you contact Transfer Services in the Registrar’s Office to verify that the course will transfer the way that you intend before you take the course.  You will need to provide the name of the school that you plan to attend and a copy of the course description for verification.  For more information regarding transferring classes, go to the Registrar’s Office webpage and click on Transfer Services.


I am a transfer student; do I have to take the first-year engineering courses?

The first-year engineering courses are required for graduation with a B.S. in chemical engineering.  If you have not yet transferred to Michigan Tech, we recommend that you take courses at your home institution that transfer as ENG 1101 and ENG 1102.  The transfer equivalent for ENG 1101 is a computer programming class using an objected-oriented programming language, such as Java or C++.  The transfer equivalent for ENG 1102 is a 3-D solid modeling class using software, such as Solid Works, Unigraphics, or 3-D Autocad.

For transfer students who have not transferred in ENG 1101 and ENG 1102, you may take ENG 1101 and ENG 1102 at Michigan Tech or it is sometimes preferable to substitute courses more appropriate to your experience and educational level.  For more information on this see the policy for when substitutions are allowed for ENG 1101, and ENG 1102.

CM 1000 is not required for graduation (per Departmental vote 10Feb2016) but it is recommended for first-year students, and it counts as a core engineering technical elective.  If you do not take CM 1000 then you must take an additional credit of core engineering technical elective.

 

 


I transferred in University Chemistry I, but have “TW credit” for University Chemistry I Recitation, CH1153. What does this mean?

The TW means that the credit for this course has been “transfer waived”. You did not receive credit for the recitation class, so you will need to make up the missing credit with something else.  See your academic advisor for course approval and to have the adjustment made to your online degree audit.
