Transfer Application Steps

Depending upon the term, the review of transfer applications begins between one and two months prior to the application deadline for the respective term of intended enrollment. 

Because the transfer admission review process is dependent upon space availability, an admission decision might not be released until after all applications have been reviewed. For this reason, you might not receive a decision until several weeks past the deadline for your intended term. Please plan accordingly and be patient with us.

If one of these deadlines falls on a Sunday or a federal holiday, the postmark deadline will be extended to the first business day following the published deadline.

Helpful Hints for Completing the Application

  • Once you begin the online application, DO NOT use the "Back" and/or "Forward" buttons on your internet browser. Instead, use the "Next" and/or "Previous" buttons provided.
  • Have your social security number and birthdate ready. 
  • If you do not see the Application Success confirmation page within a minute of submitting your application, you should return (via the Back button) to your application page and submit again.
  • If paying by credit card, please have your card information available before you begin the online application. Both the application and the non-refundable processing fee must be submitted by the appropriate deadline. Your application will not be processed until this fee has been received.

Note: Online payments can only be made between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. (Eastern Time Zone). If you complete your online application outside of these hours, please save it and log back in during these hours to make the payment.
