For students planning to transfer from Purdue-Calumet, IPFW, IUPUI (Indianapolis campus only) or Vincennes University, the institution-specific courses listed below are equivalent to the nine courses required for admission to engineering at Purdue-West Lafayette. Students may use this information as a roadmap for course selection at the respective institutions.
In addition to the course equivalencies provided in the following table, students should be aware of additional institution-specific information below.
Last updated: March 2015
* ENGR 18100 (5 credits) can substitute for both the ENGR 13200 requirement (2 credits) and the Science Selective (3 credits).
** No equivalency has been established for CS 15900 at these institutions. Students from these institutions may transfer into Purdue-West Lafayette with FYE complete through the use of the Chemistry courses for the Science Selective. In some Engineering majors, CS 15900 may be required following entry to Purdue.
1IUPUI courses ENGR 19500 and ENGR 19600 at IUPUI Indianapolis are considered equivalent to ENGR 10000 and ENGR 12600 at Purdue-West Lafayette. These IUPUI courses also satisfy the Purdue-West Lafayette ENGR 13100 and ENGR 13200 requirements.
Purdue-Calumet or IPFW: Applications from students at Purdue-Calumet or IPFW will be treated as if they are Purdue West Lafayette students attempting to switch into an engineering discipline from a major in another academic college or school on Purdue's West Lafayette campus. You may still be considered for engineering disciplines that are listed as closed to transfer applicants (except for biomedical engineering). You MUST use the regional campus transfer application.
Purdue North Central (PNC): A list of equivalencies at PNC is not provided because the campus does not have an equivalent course for ENGR 13100. Without an equivalent for ENGR 13100, students cannot transfer to a specific engineering discipline at Purdue-West Lafayette.
All Purdue Regional Campuses: Articulation agreements between Purdue regional campuses and other universities may not be honored by Purdue-West Lafayette.
