Transferring to the School of Engineering
Students interested in transferring to the School of Engineering should follow the same application checklist as all prospective transfer students applying to Tufts. However, they should follow these curriculum requirements:
Required Curriculum 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.
Required Curriculum for Junior Transfer
Applicants for junior transfer need two years of college-level coursework at the time of matriculation that satisfies 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 Engineering Degree Sheets page of the Undergraduate Advising 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 aptitude for the School of Engineering.
You will be able to submit your Maker Portfolio only after you have submitted an application to Tufts. Once you have submitted your application, you will receive a link to your Tufts applicant status portal. Submit your portfolio by selecting the “Digital Portfolio” tab in your applicant status portal, where detailed upload instructions can be found.
