Thank you for working with your students to submit their applications for fall admission. Complete admission and deadline information is available on our website at http://admissions.tc.umn.edu/transfer/deadlines.html.
Please note that some colleges and programs require additional materials including application supplements. Information concerning application supplement and required/recommended course prerequisites can be found on our website. If you or your students have any questions regarding this information, please contact the specific college in question.
We encourage students to submit complete applications by the priority deadline. Submitting complete applications by the priority deadline ensures full consideration. Applications received or completed after the priority deadline, but by the final deadline, will be reviewed on a space-available basis. Some programs may fill and therefore close their admissions before the final deadline.
In order to be considered for more than one program where the program deadlines differ, students must meet the priority deadline for each individual program.
Many undergraduate colleges and programs at the U of M-TC have required prerequisite courses that must either be complete or in-progress at the time of applying for Transfer admission. A full list of these required prerequisites can be found on our website.
Some programs and colleges have recommended prerequisite courses either in addition to or in place of required prerequisite courses. If you or your students have further questions regarding recommended and/or required prerequisite courses, please contact the specific program or college.
In the fall 2015 semester, approximately 200 spaces will be available exclusively for transfer students. Priority will be given to students who select and are admitted to one of our Transfer Student Living Learning Communities. After that, priority will be based on a student's completed housing application.
Additional housing for transfers such as Family Student Housing, off-campus housing and off-campus apartments close to campus continue to be excellent options for transfer students.
