Heartland Community 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

[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 Harper College advisor, verify general education requirements in the NIU Undergraduate Catalog, and check the Community College Articulation Tables for transferability.
