== About the 3-2 Program ==
A student can study at Williams for 3 years and then transfer to Columbia University for 2 years of engineering study. At the end of five years, the student receives both a B.A. from Williams and a B.S. in engineering from Columbia. Please note that a 3-2 student must complete the Williams distribution requirements and a Williams major, earning a 3.0 GPA overall, as well as take several prerequisite courses. Careful planning is necessary to complete all of these requirements in three years, though a few of these required courses may typically be taken at Columbia rather than at Williams. With approval of the chair of the major department, the student may receive credit toward his or her Williams major for engineering courses taken at Columbia.
