Two important words for transfer students
The transfer process is simple, but it's important to start early. A year ahead is not too soon. Here are the steps.
- Decide what program of study or major you want to pursue (undeclared is okay).
- Determine if your program of study is a secondary admit. A secondary admit means that after you are admitted to the University you must be admitted into the College which houses your program. Some programs with secondary admits include Business, Education, Engineering, Nursing, Social Work, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Music, Dance, Art and Theater.
- Talk with a JC academic advisor about your area of interest and request one or more transfer guides.
- Select the universities that match YOU. Many catalogs and applications are in JC's Student Center, Bert Walker 1st floor, as well as at other JC locations. Go to a website which will take you to the home page of Michigan Colleges. Four-year colleges and universities visit JC in mid-fall...watch for this event.
- Call the universities you're interested in attending to request catalogs and applications.
- Return the application(s) with appropriate payment.
- Request official transcripts from JC (and any other colleges you've attended) be sent to the university or universities of your choice. JC transcripts may be requested at any JC location or via FAX.
- Complete the steps for financial aid.
- Visit the university you plan to attend.
Note: If you have fewer than 30 college credits, some universities require you send high school transcripts.
