Transfer Students

Are you a student who is currently attending another university and interested in transferring to Ohio State? Enrollment for transfer students in the College of Engineering is competitive. For students transferring from another institution of higher education:

  • If you have fewer than 30 semester credit hours, you will be considered under the criteria for new students in Engineering as described in the previous sections.
  • If you have more than 30 semester credit hours and a GPA at your previous institution of 3.0 or higher, and have completed college level calculus you will be directly enrolled as a pre-major in the program of your choice. You may not enter as an undeclared pre-major.
  • If you have more than 30 semester credit hours but do not meet the 3.0 GPA, you will be enrolled in Science and Technology Exploration.
