Learn about our Transfer and Course Substitution Policies

Curricular modifications and policy changes are subject to University policy detailed on page ii of the UB Catalog.

Transfer Policy 
All undergraduate ABET accredited programs students must complete all Engineering major coursework, Engineering and Technical Electives, and STEM coursework at the 300+ level; and Junior/Senior level (as per the program requirements) at the University of Bridgeport. Students are able to transfer classes, if approved by the chair and dean, outside the University at lower (100- 200) levels or Freshman/Sophomore level (as per the program requirements) only at the time of transferring into the program; and based on UB’s transfer policy as pertains to evaluation of course descriptions, syllabi and examples of work done in transferred-in classes. Final transfer evaluations and approvals are subject to the University Transfer Credit policy on page 7 of the UB Catalog.

Course Substitution Policy
All undergraduate ABET accredited programs students must complete all Engineering major coursework, Engineering and Technical Electives, and STEM coursework at the 300+ level; and Junior/Senior level (as per the program requirements) at the University of Bridgeport; and as per defined in the program requirements. There will be NO course substitutions allowed for these classes as defined in the program requirements. Substitution courses may be allowed at lower (100-200) levels or Freshman/Sophomore level (as per the program requirements) with the approval of the Department Chair and School Dean.

Program Requirements

Upon recommendation of the faculty of the School of Engineering, the University of Bridgeport will award the bachelor’s degree to the student of good character who fulfills the following minimum requirements, in addition to those listed in the chapter on Academic Regulations:

  • Participation in such departmental seminars as the faculty prescribes.
  • Earning the total semester hours required for the individual curriculum as listed.
  • Earning a “C” or better in every course in the major and with a cumulative average of 2.0 in the major courses. Each department designates the courses to be included in the major and decides the procedure necessary to remove each deficiency, including any “D” in a major course. When a course is a prerequisite to another, a “C” or better in the prerequisite course may also be a requirement.
