Transfer Application Deadlines

Priority deadlines: Colleges with priority deadlines will give full consideration to all applications received and complete by that date. Applications received or completed after the priority deadline will be reviewed on a space-available basis. Some programs may close their admissions before the final deadline.

In order to be considered for more than one program where the program deadlines differ, you must meet the deadline for each individual program.

The following dates are applicable to external transfer students only. Additional instructions are available if you would like to change your major, minor, college, or campus.
