New Student Advising & Registration Days - Summer 2021

Transfer Students

New transfer students will meet over Zoom or phone with an advisor 1-on-1 in June to register for classes. We are hard at work processing your college transcripts. Please make sure to send official transcripts from all previous colleges you have attended, and any AP/IB official score reports if applicable. After you complete the Transfer Student Academic Interest Survey, an advisor will email you when we are ready to advise you.
