Transfer Nights

As a transfer student, your questions, experience and schedule differ from first-year students coming from high school. We designed a series of virtual one-on-one information sessions with you in mind.  

During your virtual 25-minute meeting with an admissions counselor, you’ll discuss transfer-specific information about our programs, admission process and financial aid. You’ll also receive a preliminary transfer credit evaluation when you submit a copy of your college transcript(s) in advance. Transcripts can be emailed to admissions@uarts.edu.
