Transfer Applicant Instructions

In addition to our admission requirements, please keep in mind the following:

  • Transfer applicants will only be considered for one college or program within Carnegie Mellon.

     
  • All supporting documents are due by April 1st for Fall Transfer and November 1 for Spring Transfer.
  • Transfer applicants must submit a college transcript in addition to a high school transcript, and email a copy of course descriptions from a college catalog from each college/university you attended to undergraduate-admissions@andrew.cmu.edu with the subject line, “Transfer Course Descriptions.”
  • A recommendation from a professor or advisor should be submitted in place of a college counselor recommendation.
  • We require official SAT Reasoning Test, ACT with Writing, and SAT Subject Test results if you've previously taken these tests. If you haven't previously taken these tests, it's recommended, but not required that you take them as you apply as a transfer student. If English isn't your native language, the results of the TOEFL/IELTS are required, even if you didn't take either one previously. 
  • The college/school to which you are admitted will evaluate your courses for potential transfer credit.
  • If you are offered admission for the spring semester, we do not require a tuition deposit due to the short time between offered admission and the start of the spring semester.
  • University housing is not guaranteed for transfer students.
