College of Lake County and NIU CEET Transfer Guidelines 
B.S. Degree in Electrical Engineering


The 2+2+ Plan for Community College Students

The Department of Electrical 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   Engineering Science (AES) Degree is highly recommended [1]. Students should always work closely with their community college advisor. Please contact the Advising and Transfer Center at College of Lake County for more help in planning your academic career.

*Satisfies NIU core competency requirement for oral communication.

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