Q: What is the procedure for transferring in to CEE?
A: Please visit the College of Engineering website – Changing Majors. Complete a portfolio and visit with Becky Stillwell, Academic Advisor (firstname.lastname@example.org or 217-333-3812) to discuss your transfer in person. Once your portfolio is completed you must submit your petition form online. If you have questions about the form, please visit 206 Engineering Hall.

A: All transfer petitions are to be submitted by November 25 (spring semester) and April 25 (fall semester). All petitions are reviewed by College of Engineering in 206 Engineering Hall.
Q: I’m not sure if I want to transfer to CEE. How can I learn more?
A: Our CEE Undergraduate Handbook is a great document for learning about the curriculum. Another good idea is see the Academic Adviser Becky Stillwell or Professor Jim LaFave. In addition, some students may wish to take CEE195, a one-credit class offered in fall semesters that addresses all aspects of civil engineering.
