Undergraduate Student Handbook
Transferring Out of Penn Engineering
The Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science has no policy restricting transfer to another school within the University. However, each undergraduate school sets its own criteria for accepting transfer students; thus, a student contemplating transfer should discuss his or her transfer with someone in the Dean's Office of the receiving school:
- College of General Studies, 3440 Market St., Ste 100, 215-898-7326
- Nursing School, Office of Student Services, Suite M-18, Claire M. Fagin Hall, 215-898-6687
- School of Arts and Sciences, 120 Claudia Cohen Hall, 215-898-6341
- Wharton School G95 JMHH, 215-898-7608.
A student who wishes to transfer from an engineering or applied science program to another school within the University should complete the transfer application form, available in 111 TB. A student may not transfer from Penn Engineering if his/her record includes uncleared I, GR or NR grades.
Freshman are not permitted to transfer out of Penn Engineering until they have completed 8 course units at the University. They should, however, notify an advisor in the Academic Programs Office of their wish to transfer, and they may register for courses appropriate to their proposed school. Students on a transfer roster should have their Permission to Register form approved in 111 Towne. Penn Engineering students may not register for a non-engineering roster for more than two semesters. Students who have not facilitated a transfer within this time may be dropped.
