Apply as a Transfer Student

Our admission decisions are made on a rolling basis and it's FREE to submit the online application. However, it is suggested that all transfer applications are received by August 15 for fall admission and December 15 for spring admission. 

Review of fall semester applications will take place from January through August. Review of spring semester applications will take place from September through December. A decision is usually mailed within two to three weeks after the application is complete. 

Fall 2018 application cycle for the accelerated nursing program is now closed. Applicants interested in applying for the Fall 2019 program start will be able to submit an application later this fall. Please refer to the website at a later time for updates.

All undergraduate transfer student applicants are applying to participate in full-time, day programs with a minimum of 12 course credits required each semester, with the exception of the Accelerated Nursing program. If interested in pursuing a program that offers night, weekend, online, and/or part-time options, please contact the Center for Extended Learning.
