Application Process: Transfer Students

Entering in Fall Quarter

Transfer students who are admitted for fall quarter will receive a housing contract offer after submitting their Statement of Intent to Register (SIR). Immediately after submitting their SIR, students may begin the online housing application process. An email invitation will also be sent to students following their SIR. Application instructions are summarized below. The deadline to complete the housing contract is included within the application and the email invitation, and is usually within 1-2 days of the SIR deadline. The transfer student application process typically is open from mid-April through May.

To cancel an application, refer to the Cancellation Process for Transfer Students.

Entering in Winter or Spring Quarter

Incoming transfer students who are admitted for winter or spring quarter are eligible to live in Student Housing Apartments, but because contracts extend the entire year (and subsequently the vacancy rate is low), applicants will be offered housing only as space becomes available.

Applicants should contact Student Housing and request to be placed on a waiting list. Additional instructions will be included if a contract is offered.
