The Thomas J. Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science

Transfer Students

Our transfer students include graduates of community college engineering science programs in New York state who have transferred into the Watson program for upper-division study.

Detailed transcript audits and individual advisers help each student prepare an efficient academic plan for his or her major.

For students transferring from four-year institutions, course transfer equivalencies can be found in our University Admissions Department or in this chart.

Veteran Students

The Watson School of Engineering and Applied Science utilizes the recommendations from the American Council on Education's (ACE) Military Guide to review courses on the Joint Services Transcript (JST).  Each transcript will be individually reviewed by one of our academic advisors.


The Watson School welcomes your application and thanks you for your service!
Questions about services and support for veteran students at Binghamton University and financial aid benefits available to you should be directed to the Office for Veterans Services.

Project Lead the Way

Students that earn Project Lead the Way credits while in high school may choose to have the transcript sent to Binghamton University. While these credits do not replace any required courses, they do count for credit towards registration times and appear on the student's permanent record.

Junior-Level Transfer Admission 

For admission into junior-level engineering, you should have completed coursework in the subjects listed below, including the specific courses required for junior status in your particular Watson School major. All transfer credits are awarded on a course-by-course basis. 

  • Calculus I and II, differential equations and one other math (depending on major)
  • Two semesters of calculus-based physics
  •  One course in college chemistry and one additional course in science/math
  • Two courses in English composition or technical writing
  • Two college courses in humanities/social science
  • First course in electrical circuits
  • Introductory programming course
