This is a general list of things transfer students should consider. It is not specific to a certain college or university and is not intended to be a comprehensive list. Always work with your current advisor and an advisor or admissions counselor at the institution where you're planning to transfer.
Schedule a campus visit for the institutions you are considering.
Campus visits are the best way to see if the institution is the right fit for you.
Apply for admission to your choice of institution.
Applying early assists you and your preferred institution by allowing plenty of time to get your course credit processed and posted. It can be very difficult for you and your new institution if you wait too long to apply and get the process started.
Have your transcripts from each institution you attended sent to the institution(s) to which you're applying.
