Available Transfer Majors

The following list notes the current major availability for each of our transfer application entry terms. Major availability can vary from term to term and from year to year and this page will be updated accordingly. The competitive nature of each program may likewise vary by entry term based on individual program capacities and university goals, the demand for the major and strength of the applicant pool, and certain other factors. Some majors also accept applications for multiple entry terms but recommend students begin in a specific term due to course availability, sequencing, or other considerations for degree progression and success. All applicants, regardless of planned entry term, will be expected to meet the coursework requirements and recommendations for presenting a competitive transfer application to their major, as noted on our Admissions Transfer Roadmaps.

Please note the majors of Architecture and Industrial Design are not available to transfer applicants for any term of entry. All prospective transfer students interested in a discipline in the College of Engineering (including Computer Science and Computer Engineering) will apply and be admitted to General Engineering (see below), while indicating their intended engineering major in the application. Fall is the preferred entry term for intended engineering majors marked an asterisk "*" under General Engineering in the list below, and major-specific coursework may not be immediately available for students beginning in these programs in terms other than Fall.
