Transfer Advising

As soon as you submit your deposit or Enrollment Agreement Form, the Registrar will complete your official Transfer Evaluation. 

You will be contacted shortly thereafter by Angie Dodson, Assistant Registrar and Transfer Coordinator, to arrange a time to meet either face-to-face or via phone. During this meeting, you will discuss your Transfer Evaluation, career goals, areas of interest and register for the fall semester. (This is the only time that you will not register online.)

This process usually takes place within two weeks after you submit your deposit or Enroll Agreement Form. If you have questions, or have not yet been contacted for an advising appointment, call the Registrar Office at 301-696-3616.
