Transfer Admissions

The transfer admissions process looks different depending on if you are a current student attending another college within the University of Minnesota Twin Cities or if you are a student coming from a separate university or college. Regardless, we have resources and answers for all your questions to make your transition as smooth as possible. 

Transfer Admissions Deadlines

Admissions for the fall and spring semesters each have two deadlines—priority and regular. Applications received by the priority deadline will get full consideration. Applications received or completed after the priority deadline will be reviewed on a space-available basis. Some programs may close their admissions before the final deadline.


Please reach out to the University of Minnesota's Office of Admissions or review the Transfer Admissions Next Steps guide. For students transferring between colleges within the University of Minnesota Twin Cities, or for former University of Minnesota students who wish to return to the University, please contact Intercollegiate Transfer Specialist Betsy Mowry Voss.
