The ECE Department admits qualified transfer students who have completed an Associate of Arts degree at a Florida public community or state college.  Students transferring from other universities or out-of-state schools will be evaluated for admission on a space-available basis. Transfer students are admitted Fall, Spring, and Summer C terms.

Admission Requirements for the ECE Department: Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering Majors

It is the department’s policy to admit the best-qualified applicants as demonstrated by high academic achievement. Eligible applicants have earned a minimum overall tracking GPA of 2.50 in their major critical-tracking courses (see below) and overall grade point average of 2.0 or higher. A competitive applicant will have the majority of the critical-tracking courses completed or in progress; as well as the AA degree (if coming from a Florida State College).  Only the first two attempts will be considered for admissions to the department. An attempt includes withdrawals, drops, or audits.  Transfer students meeting the minimum requirements will be considered for the ECE majors, but will not guarantee admissions to our program.

Transfer Admissions from the Florida State College Systems

Students applying from a Florida State College systems must have the following requirements:

  1. Must have completed the majority of the critical-tracking requirements
  2. Must have met the minimum GPA requirement for overall and critical-tracking courses (minimum does not guarantee admissions)
  3. Must have earned the Associate of Arts degree (AA).

Transfer Admissions from Out-Of-State and other Four-Year Institutions

Students applying from an Out-Of-State and other 4-year Institution must have the following requirements:

  1. Must have completed the majority of the critical-tracking requirements
  2. Must have met the minimum GPA requirement for overall and critical-tracking courses  (minimum does not guarantee admissions)
  3. Students may be required to submit course syllabi for critical tracking courses to the electrical engineering advisor (ntyoung@ufl.edu) and computer engineering advisor (chip@ece.ufl.edu).
  4. If admitted to the program, students will be required to complete State-Core and UF General Education courses along with the core electrical engineering courses.
