Getting Started
To take classes elsewhere and transfer them to Michigan Tech, use Michigan Tech’s online Transfer Equivalency Link along with the course schedules and catalogs from the other college. Choose courses that will transfer to an equivalent course at Tech that are required for your degree  (such as an appropriate HASS List course).

Remember: a grade of C or higher grade is required to transfer in a course!

  • To access list of courses already approved for transfer use the Michigan Tech Transfer Equivalency System.
  • If the course you want or need is not on the Transfer Credit Equivalency list, you may request to have it evaluated for transfer credit by sending the following details to the Transfer Services Office, for each course (email transfer@mtu.edu):
    • The other university or college name
    • Course ID and title
    • Syllabus – REQUIRED!
    • Textbook(s) used (usually on the syllabus)
    • Detailed Description (usually on the syllabus)
  • If all this information is available online, you can send the link to transfer@mtu.edu.  A short catalog description is not enough information to evaluate for Michigan Tech credit; you must provide the course syllabus.
  • Michigan students: complete a Guest Student Application and work with the Registrar’s office. You will need to check in with the other institution to see if anything else is required.
  • Enroll in courses. If the course(s) are prerequisites to classes you need to register for next semester, have a copy of your transcript from the transfer college sent to Michigan Tech’s office of the Registrar so that our system knows the courses you plan to transfer.

Prerequisite? If a course you are taking elsewhere is a prereq for something you want to add to your next semester’s schedule, contact Transfer Services. They can mark a course as “in session” so that your registration can proceed as normal. You still must have an official copy of your transcript from the other institution sent to Michigan Tech as soon as the prereq course is complete!

To find out if a course may count as a “UN” course, consult the Transfer Services Office before taking the course.

Michigan Tech General Education HASS Requirements. Don’t forget: 6 credits of HASS must be numbered 3000-4999 (“upper level”).

After Completing the Course
Have an official copy of your transcript sent to the Michigan Tech Registrar’s Office:

Office of Student Records & Registration
Administration Building
1400 Townsend Avenue Houghton, MI 49931-1295

For generic transfer course numbers, ex. HU9300L and SS9300U: “L” in the 7th position indicates the course is Lower Level, and “U” indicates Upper Level. New in 2020: transfer courses come in with a new format that looks like HU1XXX, EC4XXX, or HU3XX5.

ENG1001, ENG1100, ENG1101, ENG1102

Fundamentals of engineering courses –

The Spatial Visualization test must be passed prior to enrolling in ENG1001 or ENG1101.  Take ENG1002 along with your first ENG course if you do not achieve a score of at least 19 on the Spat Vis test.  Transfer students with credit for ENG1101 must pass the Spatial Visualization test before enrolling in ENG1102. (or take ENG1002 prior to taking ENG1102)

Email efadvise@mtu.edu or go to the Engineering Fundamentals Department to take the spatial visualization test:  Dillman 112,   487-3057

Pre-calc students (MA1031, 1032) take ENG1001 in fall, then ENG1100 in spring, then ENG1102 next fall.

  • ENG1101 has a co-req of MA1160/61  (or pre-req)
  • ENG1102 has a co-req of MA2160  (or pre-req)
  • ENG1001, ENG1101, ENG1102 (transfer students) have Spatial Visualization test as pre-req or take ENG1002 as co-req

ENG Courses

Objectives of Engineering Fundamentals courses:

  • To develop an appreciation for the engineering profession
  • To develop proficiency in the use of computers to solve engineering problems
  • To introduce fundamental engineering and design concepts
  • To improved technical communication skills
  • To understand ethics and it’s importance in the engineering profession

Summer course option for Fall 2020 incoming class

Are you considering a head start on your ECE Degree? This is not required, however, you may take a summer course at a discounted price! The details are listed on our Admissions Website.

Summer 2020 recommended courses for Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering majors who are admitted for Fall 2020:

Do not take a course for which you may be earning AP or transfer credit. Students should not take more than one course from each General Education list (consider any AP or transfer credits you may earn).

One of the following is appropriate for all engineering degrees:
UN1025 – Global Issues, 3 credits
FA2520 or HU2324 or HU2503 or HU2538 or HU2700 (one of these will satisfy the Critical & Creative Thinking core list)
PSY2000 or EC2001 or SS2700 (one of these will satisfy the Social Responsibility/Ethical Reasoning core list)
MA1161 – Calculus I, (if Calc I is the correct starting math course for you)

Computer Engineers may include this as their choice:
CS1121 – Introduction to programming I

Electrical Engineers may include one of these as their choice:
CH1150 and CH1151 – University Chemistry I and Lab
MSE2100 – Introduction to Material Science and Engineering (will apply toward the SELECT approved elective area)

Electrical Engineers who are interested in pursuing a Computer Science minor or Computer Engineering double-major may take CS1121. If undecided, it is OK to postpone this class until later.

CH1150 and CH1151 will apply toward the Computer Engineering degree in the 2nd Discipline math and science electives area. Later, there are will be two other choices, in case you do not want to take Chemistry.

One of the other lower level Humanities, Arts and Social Science courses may be a choice for you, as 6 credits of lower level HASS are allowed. Ensure you don’t have the lower-level HASS already covered from incoming AP or Transfer credits.

If you have questions, please contact the academic advisor for your major:
Computer Engineers: Liz Fujita, liz@mtu.edu
Electrical Engineers: Judy Burl, jmburl@mtu.edu

Taking summer prerequisite course elsewhere

If you are taking a summer course elsewhere, that is a prerequisite to a course you need to register in fall:

1. Send an email notice to transfer@mtu.edu (Transfer Services Office) and let them know your name, M#, the course and the college. Include a screen-shot of your registration page showing the College Name, and that you’re registered in that course.
2. After that, a temporary  “IN SESSION (IS)” record will be added so that you can then register in the fall class(es).
3. Be sure to have your other college send an official copy of your transcript as soon as the class has ended. (otherwise the fall classes will be dropped)

A grade of “C” or higher is required to transfer a course to Michigan Tech.
