Transfer Students

There are so many details involved in transferring from one institution to another. Before you dive into that process, visit campus to test the waters. Our admission advisors can help you get your feet wet and suggest an academic plan that will prevent you from getting in over your head.

Campus Visits

Campus visits provide you with a general overview of our academic programs, student support services, and the application process. After the information session, you will go on a walking tour of campus where you will see classrooms, science labs, student life facilities, and more! Tours are led by current students who will provide you with an “insider’s” point of view; student tour guides are happy to answer any questions you may have about becoming a future Husky.
