Colleges, Majors & Transfer Course Sheets

Selecting a major is a critical component in the transfer process. Each major has its own transfer applicant admission requirements, so make sure to review each major of interest’s prerequisites. Visit for the most current information, or contact the Prospective Student Center nearest you. 

With the changes to the 2014-2015 University Core Curriculum, the Degree Tracks previously used for transfer admission are no longer valid. Coursework for desired majors is available on the Transfer Course Sheets next to your intended major listed under each college below. It is to a student’s advantage to follow the guidelines and complete courses as outlined on the Transfer Course Sheets and in the catalog.
