Transfer Credit Advisory Note: The University may accept transfer "D" grades; however, in the School of Engineering, a grade of C or better is required in all chemistry, computer science, mathematics, physics, and engineering science courses applied to major or minor requirements. Construction Management students must also meet all Business Minor requirements. A course that transfers in as 1xx, 2xx, 3xx or TRF 1xx; TRF 2xx; TRF 3xx may require a course description and/or syllabus for further evaluation.
