Admissions

Transfer Students

The Gene and Linda Voiland School of Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering cooperates with the community colleges in Washington to minimize problems associated with transfer. Inquiries are welcome. A strong preparation in mathematics, physics, and chemistry is strongly recommended prior to transfer to minimize the time required at Washington State University to complete the bachelor’s degree requirements. Students who have taken statics, differential equations and circuits at their previous institution, and who take ChE 201 during the summer session, will be able to proceed through the curriculum in a timely manner. In particular, statics is a pre-requisite course for students to complete their coursework in two years after transferring to WSU.

The requirements for direct entry into chemical engineering or bioengineering programs upon transfer are the same as listed for certification. Transfer student applications will be handled by the Admissions Office and sent to the school so that students do not need to make a separate application to the school. Questions about transfer course equivalencies can be addressed through the Office of Admissions (http://admission.wsu.edu/transfer/) for general education courses, or by one of the Voiland School Academic Coordinators (mgreaney@wsu.edu or nalsouwd@wsu.edu) for bioengineering requirements.
