*First-semester transfer students applying for the Spring semester can still complete their transfer application, but will not be able to submit an official transcript until they have completed a full semester in college. If provisionally admitted, students must submit their official transcript in order to be reviewed to confirm their admittance. Since it may take a few weeks for us to receive an official transcript, we will accept unofficial grade reports, printed off the institution's website, to make our final decision. Students still need to submit official transcripts before the first day of class.
