ILEE Dual Degree Application

NEW ILEE Application Deadlines

  • To be eligible for Spring 2020, you must apply by October 30, 2019
  • To be eligible for Fall 2020, you must apply by March 30, 2020


To apply for the ILEE Dual Degree Program, please follow the steps below:

  1. Check to ensure that you are eligible.
  2. Click the ILEE Application button below. It will take you to the Engineering Portal Student Transfer page. NOTE: This seems confusing since you're not transferring, but for now this is the correct process to apply for the ILEE dual degree.
  3. Log In
  4. For "Choose a College to Transfer to", select "The Grainger College of Engineering"
  5. After the new page opens, answer the three questions at the bottom of the page. This will allow you to choose a portfolio type. This will allow you to choose the ENGR Portfolio (do not start a PREP Portfolio).
  6. Click "Continue to your portfolio"
  7. The portfolio page will open. Fill out the entire portfolio, taking note of the items below:
    • For the first question in the first section, “What major(s) are you initially interested in?”, answer by stating that you are seeking a dual degree—one degree in: [insert home department major, i.e. Electrical Engineering], and one degree in Innovation, Leadership, and Engineering Entrepreneurship.
    • You will need to upload your resume and write a personal statement.
    • You will need to upload the Engineering Dual Degree Form to your portfolio. Visit the Engineering Undergraduate Programs Wiki, and scroll down to the Dual Degrees (Grainger Engineering + ILEE) Section and click on Engineering Dual Degree Form to download the form. (See image below)
    • Then, obtain the needed signature(s) on the Dual Degree Form, and upload it to the portfolio. The signatures needed are (1) your home department advisor's signature, (2) the TEC advisor's signature (Terry Cole,, and (3) and (4) the Undergraduate Programs Office Dean. For signatures (3) and (4), just drop off the form in 206 Engineering Hall after obtaining signatures (1) and (2), and pick it up the next day. (See image below)

  8. Under the final portfolio section called "Apply - Majors of Interest" there is a section called "Major Selection". For the first question "Identify your top major of interest", you MUST answer "Innovation, Leadership and Engineering Entrepreneurship". This will NOT displace your home major. Ignore the next two questions about identifying your second or third major of interest.
