A transfer applicant has attended a college or university after high school graduation (summer excluded), but has not yet earned a bachelor's degree. (Students who have already earned a bachelor's degree should apply as a post-baccalaureate student.) Transfer applicants may apply directly to a major program, or may apply as undeclared or pre-major, depending on the number of credits earned at the time of application and eligibility.
