Summer/Fall 2017 Transfer Reviews

In mid-February, our office started reviewing Summer transfer applications, as well as a small number of fall transfer decisions.  The deadline for summer has not passed and we are still receiving applications and documents, so we cannot say how long it will take us to finish or guess when you will hear a decision.  If you applied early for summer or fall, please be sure to check your Status page to see if we have your most up-to-date transcript(s).  If you were enrolled in coursework last fall and have not sent a transcript with your fall grades, you should have one sent as soon as possible.  To be complete and ready to review, we must have a transcript from each college/university you have previously attended.  If we see that you were enrolled in courses last fall and we do not have a transcript with those grades, you are not complete and this will delay a review of your application.

Once we complete the Summer transfer reviews, we will then begin to focus full time on our review Fall transfer applicants. Just like the summer files, we do not know how many will apply, how long each review will take, when you will hear, etc. The best this is to just be patient as we review the files. As well, Fall transfer applicants need to make sure we have the most up-to-date transcripts, and that we have individual transcripts from each college attended, even if it was dual enrollment work in high school.

One change for this year's transfer decisions is that we have a new admissions system, which allows for a little quicker review of files, but more importantly for communications to go out once a change to your application status (generally an admit or deny decision) has been made. We will be releasing transfer decisions every Friday late afternoon (starting this Friday, 2/24), and emails go out about 15 minutes after a decision is released. This means there is no need to constantly check on your status page for a change, and it allows us to perform a number of checks on decisions prior to releasing them. 

Go Dawgs!
