Transferring Courses to the Bourns College of Engineering
If you are a current UCR BCOE student planning to take courses at another UC or Cal State school, or if you are transferring to the Bourns College of Engineering, then use the following table to see a partial list of transferable classes. (CNAS has a list of transferring courses that articulate on their Academic Affairs site for your reference)
Keep in mind that the lists are not complete, and are based on the best information available. Course articulations are subject to change.
If you are interested in obtaining equivalency decisions on courses that are not listed using these resources you’ll need to obtain the full syllabi (not course description) from the other institution and request an evaluation be made by the corresponding department at UCR. Once that department has made a determination you would then forward that email to your academic advisor so that we can assist in confirming that the course you hope to take would fulfill a requirement(s) for your major.
BCOE students who want to take a summer course at another institution are not required to obtain prior approval. You can send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for guidance on course equivalency.
ASSIST: A Great Resource for Transferring Students
If you are interested in taking classes at a community college, your best resource is ASSIST, an online student-transfer information system that shows how course credits earned at one public California college or university can be applied when transferred to another. For questions or clarifications, please consult your advisor.
Submitting Transcripts from Another Institution
Once you complete a course(s) and you know that your grade(s) have posted, request an official transcript to be sent to the address below. The Admissions department will process the transcripts and then you’ll see the course(s) in the system. This takes approximately three weeks. Review your degree audit in the new system and if you do not see the course, contact your academic advisor to review your record.
