We are thrilled to have just sent out our first wave of transfer decisions on Tuesday – congratulations to our newly admitted Commodores! Your stories, life experiences, academic achievements, and potential to contribute to our campus community were exciting to see in your applications. You possess many of the same impressive traits we see in our first-year class, and for a variety of reasons (some beyond your control) you have decided to be brave and go through the college application process again.
We take the interest of transfer applicants very seriously and appreciate the thought put into the applications. The strength of the transfer applicant pool makes the process of review both rewarding and challenging at the same time. We have limited space in our transfer class and routinely see over 1,300 students applying for one of our 210 spots in the entering transfer class.
We know that many transfer applicants are still awaiting a decision, and you may have questions about the process. We hope the information below helps to answer your questions, but if there is one thing we know about our transfer applicants, it is that no two of you are exactly alike. Please reach out to your admissions officer with specific questions about your application or our process.
Congratulations to those we’ve recently admitted. For those who have not heard from us yet, please hang in there! We are doing our best to continue to move through your applications with the care they deserve, while also working with our incoming first-year class and recruiting future Commodores across the world!
