Transfer Students

For Fall 2015-Spring 2016,  Housing & Residential Life will guarantee a limited number of transfer students to on campus housing. Due to the demand for student housing on campus and the “housing guarantee” for incoming first-time freshman students, on campus housing is limited for incoming transfer students. Approximately 200 spaces will be reserved for transfer students with a guarantee payment deadline of June 1. Priority will be given to students who select and are admitted to one of our Transfer Student Living Learning Communities. After that, priority will be based on a student's application complete date.

Transfer Student Living Learning Communities:

  • CFANS Transfer Community
  • CSE Transfer Community
  • Leaders In Transition

Additional Living Learning Communities that accept transfer students

  • American Sign Language
  • Honors Residential Community
  • Huntley House for African American Men
  • Lavender House
  • Student Crossing Borders
  • Substance Free

We encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible. Once students apply for admission to the University, they can apply for housing. You do not need to be accepted to the University before applying.

Students who are guaranteed housing will get a guarantee email and will be required to submit the $200 housing guarantee payment. Students who are guaranteed and submit the guarantee payment by the requested date will be assigned by July 31, 2015. Students who are not guaranteed will be added to a general wait list.
