Transfer Students

 

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. However, students are not guaranteed review after the posted application deadline. In reviewing applications, the GC Office of Admissions uses a holistic admissions process. This process not only exams the students’ academic record but also takes into consideration the competencies and experiences (full spectrum) of an applicant. Therefore meeting the minimum admission requirement does not guarantee acceptance. 

Admission files should be complete for the following terms by the indicated deadlines:

Fall Semester application deadline in July 1
Spring semester application deadline is November 1st
Maymester application deadline is April 1st
Summer June and July session application deadlines are May 1st

 

Transfer Admission Requirements

The Undergraduate application is used to apply as a transfer student. Please submit ONLY ONE application and use ONLY that application all the way through to submission. Submitting more than one application will most certainly delay your admission decision.
