These houses fill early, some before the March 1 priority date. You can apply before you know whether you have been admitted to the University.
Open to transfer students admitted to the College of Science and Engineering for fall!
The CSE Transfer House is an excellent opportunity to connect with other transfer students who have similar career aspirations and academic interests in science and/or engineering. Students will have the opportunity to be introduced to research opportunities, study abroad programs, leadership programs and a variety of social events such as barbeques, informal dinners with professors, off-campus experiences, etc. In addition to the social aspect, students will have access to the Taylor Tutoring Center in Frontier Hall that serves CSE students.
