College of Science Transfer Requirements

Students desiring to transfer into the College of Science must apply to a specific major within the college. Once a transfer student has been successfully admitted to the college and a major, changes to a student's major are not typically considered. 

In addition to making progress in the University's Core Curriculum, a prospective student should prepare a schedule for the intended major based on the following:


Biological Sciences
Environmental Sciences
Neuroscience and Behavior
Preprofessional Studies


Students who have completed first-year coursework that closely mirrors Notre Dame's first-year coursework will be more competitive in the transfer admissions process. Please be aware that the College of Engineering does not favor substituting sophomore courses for those required in the first year.
