Carl Sandburg College and NIU CEET Transfer Guidelines 
B.S. Degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering


The 2+2+ Plan for Community College Students

The Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering welcomes transfer students from Illinois community colleges. Students find it easy to continue their studies at NIU if they plan well. Therefore, following the course guidelines in this brochure while completing an Associate's in Science (A.S.) Degree is highly recommended (1).   Students should always work closely with their community college advisor. Please contact the Counseling & Transfer Center at Carl Sandburg College for more help in planning your academic career.

Courses in Humanities/Fine Arts and Social/Behavioral Science as required. Satisfies social science general education requirement for NIU

[1] Only A.A. and A.S. degrees satisfy NIU's general education requirements.

 

 

General Education Requirements

NIU's College of Engineering and Engineering Technology no longer requires sequences in Social Sciences and Humanities. Therefore, students only need to satisfy NIU's general education requirements. When choosing general education/core competency courses please consult with your CSC advisor, verify general education requirements in the NIU Undergraduate Catalog, and check the Community College Articulation Tables for transferability.
