Transfer Applicant Checklist

In addition to the massive number of community college students who transfer to four-year institutions, roughly one-quarter of those who begin at four-year universities will also transfer at some point during their postsecondary career. Finding accurate information regarding transfer requirements can be a challenge. If you're looking for a transfer applicant checklist complete with all the main documents that will be required for your application, then look no further. College Transitions provides information on each application item, including: high school transcript, recommendations, college report, mid-semester report, and course descriptions.

*Data collected from institution websites and Common Data Set (CDS) forms.
