Transfer Successfully

There are many things to consider when planning on transferring to another institution to complete your education goals. Transferring is a different process than applying as a high school student.

Here are a few tips and things to consider:

  • What are the school's application deadlines?
  • What is the cost of the application?
  • Do you need to send only UNG transcripts or do you also need high school transcripts?
  • Make sure you have UNG and all other institutions send your transcripts or scores directly.  DO NOT have them send to you first.
  • Do you need letters of recommendation?
  • Is there a separate application for the institution and your major?  Are there separate deadlines?
  • Financial Aid does not automatically follow you.  Contact the school's Financial Aid Office directly to insure proper transfer of your financial aid.
  • Meet with your academic advisor to stay on track with course selection and planning. 
  • "Work backwards."  Have the mindset of "If I was enrolled at my new institution today, what classes would I be taking?  Where would I be in my career planning?"
  • Get to know these terms:
    • residency requirement
    • articulation agreement
    • transferable GPA
  • STAY ORGANIZED!  Keep track of deadlines, paperwork, and contacts.  Make sure to keep a record of the people you speak with at each institution.
  • Ask questions!  We are here to help!
