RIT's College of Engineering admits graduates from two-year community colleges in engineering science and engineering technology. Significant numbers of transfer students join the undergraduate program and give RIT’s engineering programs a unique academic atmosphere.
The AS graduate in engineering science with above-average scholastic achievement can usually enter one of the five BS in engineering programs as a regular third-year student. It may be necessary to adjust a few courses to accommodate program differences in the first two years. Transfer credits are granted on the basis of course-by-course evaluation.
The AAS graduate in technology who has demonstrated outstanding achievement may also consider transfer to our BS program. The exact number of transfer credits for which he or she may qualify varies widely, and the student should contact the department head for transfer credit evaluation.
