Application:
We require students applying for transfer admission to submit the Common Application’s “Transfer Application.” The application form (www.commonapp.org), along with your $60.00 application fee, must be sent electronically.

Make sure you have answered all questions thoroughly and precisely. Remember, you are your best advocate, so take some time when completing each section of the application. If the forms do not provide enough space, feel free to use additional sheets.

High School Transcript:
A final official transcript of all high school work is required.

Transcript of all College Work
A complete official transcript(s) of all college work, including current-semester courses and grades, is required. If your current semester courses are still in progress, a midterm progress, the mid-term report available at www.commonapp.org should be submitted by the application deadline indicating what courses you are taking, and your current grade in each course, signed and dated by each of your current professors.  An official final transcript for all course work still must be submitted, as soon as it is available.

Two (2) Instructor Evaluations:
Two (2) professor recommendations from current professors are required.  Additional letters of support are welcome.

Registrar Report:
This statement, completed by the Dean of Students at the college you are currently attending, is to verify that you are in good academic and disciplinary standing at your institution. The College Official's Form is available at www.commonapp.org.

Course Descriptions:
Please submit course catalog pages (or photocopies) giving course descriptions of all subjects completed or to be completed.

Interview:
The last day you may have an interview is June 1, 2017 for fall transfer and December 1, 2016 for spring semester. An interview with a member of the Admissions Staff is highly recommended for all transfer applicants. It is the applicant’s responsibility to arrange an appointment in advance by calling the Admissions Office at 800-442-2421. Interviews are offered Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. — 4:00 p.m.

Standardized Testing:
The submission of standardized test scores is optional. If you are submitting testing, request scores be sent to the College. The College Board code number is 3282. The American College Testing Program code is 1810. Students who opt not to submit scores will not be at any disadvantage.

Supplementary Materials:
Students with strong extracurricular interests are invited to submit samples of their talent.  Our most common submissions are of a musical, theatrical or artistic nature. These materials may be in the form of images (jpg, png, gif), videos (mov, wmv, flv, mp4), PDF, or MP3, and should be submitted through the Common Application or via our Slideroom Website.
