Transfer Into Physics

Students currently enrolled at the University of Illinois may transfer from other departments into Engineering Physics or into one of three LAS Physics degree programs. The requirements for transfer are distinct for each college.

Before moving forward with a decision to change majors, please review our degree programs carefully and review the entry requirements for transfer students.

When ready, please schedule an appointment with the chief advisor for the program you are interested in. Bring a copy of your DARS report to this meeting. To transfer into Engineering Physics, please contact Alfred Hubler. To transfer into one of the three LAS physics undergraduate programs, please contact Naomi Makins.

Changing colleges

Freshmen (including students entering with sophomore standing) must remain in the college to which they were admitted for one year. Students who have transferred from another institution must remain in the college to which they were admitted for one semester.
