Transferring to the School of Engineering
Students interested in transferring to the School of Engineering should follow the same application checklist as all students applying to Tufts. However, they should follow these curriculum requirements:
Curriculum Requirements for Sophomore Transfer
Applicants for sophomore transfer need at least two semesters of college-level calculus or higher level math and two semesters of calculus-based physics or chemistry at the time of matriculation.
Curriculum Requirements for Junior Transfer
Applicants for junior transfer need two years of college-level coursework at the time of matriculation that completes the introductory engineering coursework and makes progress toward completing the foundation requirements for the intended major at Tufts. Information regarding introductory and foundation courses can be found on the Degrees and Majors page of the School of Engineering website.
Optional Maker Portfolio
This portion of the application is optional, meaning it is not required. Students applying to the School of Engineering may submit a Maker Portfolio to showcase their engineering-related projects. This is an opportunity to highlight past creations or ongoing projects that demonstrate your aptitude for the School of Engineering.
Students applying through the Common Application should indicate their plans to submit a portfolio as part of the application and will see a link to submit the portfolio via SlideRoom at the end of the application; please note there is a $12 charge to submit a portfolio through SlideRoom. Students applying through the Coalition application should visit the Tufts SlideRoom to create an account, select the appropriate “Non-Common App” program, and submit a portfolio.
