Transfer Course Recommendations

Summer school at a community college is a great option for students who want to get a head start on an Engineering or Computer Science degree before attending Baylor. We strongly recommend that you take engineering, computer science and math courses at Baylor. This will ensure you receive the foundation needed to be successful. Below are some courses that can be transferred to Baylor if you choose to take summer classes. We strongly recommend that you only take courses already listed as equivalent according to the Equivalent Course Tool and carefully read the university's Transfer Credit Policies.
