Personal Visit

Transfer students, your personal visit includes a walking tour of campus, meeting with a transfer admission counselor, and faculty appointment. Because our counselor’s calendar fills up quickly, please set up your visit at least two weeks in advance. Copies of your college transcripts are needed at least one week before your visit so we have time to review them for transfer of credit.
