Admission decisions are based primarily on students’ academic performance with special attention given to the required coursework listed above. In order to be competitive, students are advised to complete 16 units of academically rigorous coursework in each term of enrollment; all courses should be taken for a letter grade.

The application provides an optional space for students to include their collegiate extracurricular activities, college honors and awards, and any additional information they feel is pertinent for consideration.

Letters of recommendation are not part of the application process.

The Marshall Office of Undergraduate Advising is available to assist prospective internal transfer students with their questions concerning the program requirements and the application process.
