Transfer Students

Students may transfer into the Engineering Technology and Construction Management programs at UNC Charlotte in one of two ways:

Matriculate as Transfer without AAS degree from Community or Technical College

Students may transfer to a Bachelor Science in Engineering Technology (BSET) or Bachelor of Science in Construction Management (BSCM) program after achieving the minimum university transfer requirements. All requirements for the BSET or BSCM are met at UNC Charlotte as defined by the appropriate program curriculum.

Transfer Student Program Evaluation and Advisement

Each transfer student who enters the program comes in with a unique set of completed coursework. Consequently, each student who enters the program is beset by a different set of constraints. In order to provide transfer students with a smooth transfer and matriculation experience, a personal and unique program of study is prepared for each entering student. A comparison between the student’s completed coursework and the anticipated Baccalaureate program is made, and a list of courses required for degree completion is generated. As each program of study is prepared, the following list of constraints must be addressed:

  • The transfer requirements
  • The upper-division program requirements presented in the University catalog for the semester of admission.
  • Departmental General Education requirements in effect at time of enrollment.
  • Program requirements necessary to maintain accreditation by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET (ETAC/ABET) and/or the Applied Natural Sciences Accreditation Commission of ABET (ANSAC/ABET).
  • The 120-semester hour limitation stipulated by the UNC system administration.

Matriculate as Transfer Student with AAS degree from Community or Technical College

Each of the programs offered by the Department of Engineering Technology & Construction Management can be accessed as the second half of a “2+2” arrangement. That is, students may complete the first two years of the program by completing an approved AAS degree in a related field at a community or technical college. Upon completion of the AAS, a student then matriculates to UNC Charlotte to complete their Junior and Senior years of study. See detailed description below.

AAS Transfer Program Structure

All transfer students with an approved AAS degree are given a maximum of 64 semester hours of transfer credit towards the BSET or BSCM degree when proof of the AAS degree is presented. In addition to a completed AAS degree, students must satisfy a set of defined pre-requisite subjects in their two-year program. Any missing pre-requisites are considered entrance deficiencies and must be remediated within the timeframe stated in the catalog of entry and the student is responsible for correcting any entrance deficiencies by taking appropriate coursework at either UNC Charlotte or a community or technical college through the Transient Study process. Common deficiencies are in the areas of math and physics. Courses taken at UNC Charlotte to remediate deficiencies cannot be used towards the upper-division credit requirements of the program.
