The Wait List has closed

We've come to a point where the transfer class is full. Regrettably, we can't offer admission to everyone. In due time, you should receive an email notifying you of the closure. 

We know that the wait can be long and tedious, so we appreciate your patience and cooperation in sending your final transcripts.

We'll use this summer to make posts about preparing for the spring application.  This will be available on Common App's website around August 1. Look out for summer tips and guidance.

Second Wave of Wait List Offers

This weekend, we will offer to about 30 more students.  Most come from Arts and Sciences, but there is one from Commerce and a few from Engineering.  I believe this will be the final wave, but the wait list isn't formally closed.  When it closes, we will post it on the blog and everyone remaining will receive an email with the announcement. We will do our best to close the wait list by the end of June.

Transfer Wait List Update

The process is finally beginning to churn again.

This weekend, we will offer to about 70 students from the wait lists for the College, Engineering and Architecture.  No word yet on Nursing or Commerce.

These decisions are announced through email, so check the email account you noted on your application. Check your junk mail too.  The decision will be posted on your SIS self-service page and that is where you'll pay your deposit.  In order to keep the process moving, you will have 48 hours to deposit. 

Good luck!

UPDATE ON 6/14/14:
The emails went out Friday evening.  There will be no more emails this weekend. Historically, there have a couple of waves of decisions.  I can’t promise there will be another, but let’s hope so.

If you need an extension on your deposit deadline because you need to know your financial aid situation before you deposit, please reply to the email you received. We will not give you an extension if you did not submit the FAFSA and CSS Profile by the deadline of April 1. 

Student Financial Services was notified of your new decisions on Friday. They will now work to get you your awards out as soon as possible.  If they have posted items on your to-do list, please see to them straight away.   We want to wrap this up quickly, but appropriate financial aid awards can sometimes take weeks.

Complete or Incomplete? That is the Question.

Thank you for your comments over the weekend.  On Saturday, our Student Information System was down for updates.  When it came back up, it made many matriculated students accounts' appear incomplete.  This was a false alarm and we apologize for the anxiety.  The situation was rectified just 20 mins ago.  Please go back and check to see that you have a green 'complete' circle. If you don't, send us an email.

Again, this is only for matriculated students.  This did not affect wait listed students.  If you are on the wait list, a final transcript request does not appear on your to-do list... but don't let that confuse you.  We need your final transcript to compare you to other wait-listed students.

And here's another reminder to remember to click the button to "Remain on the Wait List."

UPDATE: Now, any matriculated student who has an incomplete yellow triangle has not sent us a final transcript.
