How early should you apply?

Transfer applicants may apply up to a year in advance of their expected term of enrollment. It's best to apply as early as possible so that you'll have more scholarships available, and more options for orientation dates and housing preferences.

When are admission decisions made?

Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis. You'll be informed of your admission status once we've received and processed your complete application and all required documents.

Letters of recommendation and essays

You will not need to mail letters of recommendation and an essay (personal statement) with your application unless additional information is requested of you by an admission officer and is necessary to evaluate your application for admission to the university.

If letters of recommendation and an essay are required, you will receive a letter from an admission officer requesting those documents. At that time, you should submit your essay and ask the appropriate people to submit letters of recommendation directly to our office. Letters of recommendation should be submitted by your your advisor and two or three professors.
