The May 1 enrollment deadline for freshmen passed last week and we’re looking forward to meeting our new students this summer during Orientation! But here in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and Orientation we also have the pleasure of working with transfer students. We like transfer students so much that we even have our very own Transfer Coordinator! Who has her own blog! The great news for our prospective transfer students is that it is not too late to apply for the fall 2011 term.
The deadline for transfer student will be coming up in a few weeks- May 31 to be specific. To apply as a transfer student you will need to submit the Undergraduate degree-seeking application (and $50 application fee) and your official college transcripts (from ALL previous colleges you’ve attended). We also require official high school transcripts and SAT and/or ACT scores for transfer student who have earned fewer than 30 college credits. When reviewing applications for transfer student the Admission staff will be evaluating a student’s overall academic record. This includes considering your grades, GPA, curriculum and trends.
For some students who have already applied we will wait for your spring grades before making a decision. If you fall into this scenario simply send an updated official transcript once you have finished your semester.
As always, feel free to contact our office if you have questions. If you’ve applied you can also check your myUMBC account to verify that your application is complete. However, please allow time for our office to process the documents you send. On a final note, once you finish reading this post, get the heck outside! It’s gorgeous 🙂
