New international transfer students
If you will have transfer credits, you must send syllabi and course description and lab/experiment details to Michigan Tech, International Programs and Services in May or June. Approved translations only. Send information for each course you wish to transfer to Michigan Tech.
If you do not have Michigan Tech Mathematics transfer credits ON YOUR RECORD at Michigan Tech, attend the Math Placement exam on Tuesday, August 28th, at 8:00 a.m., in Fisher building room 331. You will not get a class schedule until you take this exam or have transferred your math credits. If you miss the math placement exam, see Ms. Ann Humes in Fisher building, room 205B as soon as you arrive at Michigan Tech or email Ms. Humes at email@example.com.
Fall schedules will be entered by the Registration Office soon after your transfer credits have been processed. Send in an official copy of your transcript as soon as possible. Call or e-mail me if you have questions, firstname.lastname@example.org I will be available in summer to help with planning. Transfer Student orientation week advising is scheduled Friday, August 31st in EERC 131, 1-3:30.
Fall 2012 Classes are determined based on your math placement. The Registrar's Office will schedule your ‘Cohort' courses: MAth, ENGineering and PHysics, in mid-July. Look for your schedule on Banweb then.
Computer Engineers: You may take the CS Programming Skills test online if you are an experienced programmer. If you pass the test, you may take CS1131 in fall, instead of CS1121 and then CS1122. If you are undecided between computer engineering and computer science, feel free to contact me with questions. 906-487-2232.
Electrical Engineers: CH 1150/1151, University Chemistry is required for Electrical Engineering majors. Carefully choose the correct starting chemistry course for you. If you are not well-prepared for CH1150/1151, take CH1000 first.
Math - if you are not ready for calculus
If you begin in a Math course prior to Calculus I, view suggested first-year plans for students starting in MA 1030, MA 1031, or MA 1032. Math courses prior to calculus may be applied to degree as “free electives” if taken prior to calculus.
CH 1150 – University Chemistry I is not required for Computer Engineers. CH 1150/1151 University Chemistry I and Lab. CH 1153 is optional recitation section, recommended if you would like weekly review of chemistry material.
Chemistry – read here for Chemistry course selection help. We strongly urge students to register for the correct chemistry course during or before Orientation.
HASS Requirements (Humanities, Social Sciences & Arts electives)
E-mail me if you have questions: email@example.com or call me at 906-487-2232.
Freshmen: You will be scheduled to meet with your Academic Advisor, Judy Donahue during your first semester. We will review details of your program and plan your spring classes.

Students planning a double major with Computer Engineering (CpE) and Electrical Engineering (EE) – It is best to follow the Computer Engineering suggested plan. CH1150/51 is required (but you don't have to take it in first year).
Pep Band, FA 2400: one credit of FA 2400 may be applied toward co-curricular requirements.
