Cockrell School of Engineering Internal Transfer Information Sessions

I am writing to share the Internal Transfer Information Session dates for the Cockrell School of Engineering for 2017-2018.  Please encourage your students who are interested in an engineering major to attend one of the sessions.

Tuesday, September 26:  9:30 – 10:30 am    POB 2.402
Wednesday, October 18:  10:00 – 11:00 am    POB 2.402

Students are not required to attend an Information Session in order to apply for Internal Transfer to an engineering major.  Students may schedule an appointment with an academic advisor in Engineering Student Services if they still have questions after attending an Info Session and/or reviewing the requirements and process for Internal Transfer online.  We ask that before scheduling an appointment, they take the Internal Transfer “quiz” (they’ll be able to answer the questions on the quiz after reading the website).

As a reminder, we allow students outside of the Cockrell School to apply for Internal Transfer into Engineering at the end of the Spring semester for the following Summer/Fall.

All of this information is also available on our website: http://www.engr.utexas.edu/undergraduate/admissions/changeofmajor.
