- Co-op students register for ENGR 1090, 1 credit, during each of their 3 rotations for a total of 3 credits. These 3 credits satisfy a ChE, Engineering, or Professional Elective requirement.
- Advanced placement scores from the SCHOOL you transferred from MUST be received by our department for them to transfer to PITT. Simply giving us your transcript with "AP" on it from your previous school is not sufficient.
- Unless specified in a 3/2 agreement, for transfer of classes from other universities, our department CANNOT give you more credits than you took. For example, if your calculus 1 class was a 3 credit course, as opposed to our 4 credit course, you will receive only 3 credits but you do NOT have to make up the one credit with a math or science elective.

A copy of all information collected along with the fully executed and signed Program and Course Approval Form must be given to the Academic Administrator for inclusion in your file. Any changes in classes taken once you are abroad must be reported and approved by Dr. Bayles. Once you return, you must request your transcript in order to get credit for the study abroad classes.
___ Final report on independent study classes and/or co-op report were filed in the main office. All students who have completed one or more CHE 1097 research courses must compete and present a poster on their work at least one time prior to graduation to receive credit for CHE 1097. This assignment also involves research or a task associated with an industry while on Co Op or an internship. Cash awards will be given to top presenters at the annual OXE/CHE Departmental Research Day which is held annually each fall or spring.
