Transfer application requirements

Transfer admission decisions for our academic programs are made on a rolling, space-available basis.

Please note: Transfer applications to the College of Nursing's traditional B.S.N. program are no longer accepted because enrollment in this college is at capacity. The R.N.-B.S.N.-M.S.N. degree completion program has been phased out and is no longer accepting applications from new students.

Once all admission materials are received, an admission decision follows in about four weeks. For transfer application deadlines and other tips, visit transfer deadlines.

Application requirements

For your transfer application file to be considered complete, the following documents are required:

  1. Online application for undergraduate admission
    • Transfer students are encouraged to complete the extracurricular activity list. Include high school, college and community activities.
    • The secondary school/guidance counselor report (part 2) is not required for transfer students.
