Transfer Application Workshops and Labs

Transfer Application Series

Applying to transfer to a university is often more than just completing a form. It is a package of materials that you submit to support your candidacy for their program. 

The application cycle can take as short as two weeks to as long as one year. It is a process that may require the reporting of your academic history, admissions essay, portfolio or supplemental application to specific programs and departments.

In addition, you are likely finding yourself applying for financial aid, scholarships, on-campus housing, etc.. 

This series walks you through and supports you through the transfer application cycle. See below for our topics and schedule.
