Information for Transfer Students
Stay on track.
See how close you are.
In addition to all the deadlines and requirements you have to be aware of, there are lots of other to-dos that seem easy enough, but can derail the application process if they’re left unchecked. So we’ve composed this completely printable checklist to help you navigate the path.
Did you pay the Application Fee?
For the University of Texas at Arlington the fee is $50. Unless you’ve missed the deadline, then the fee is $60.
Did you send us your college transcripts?
Our admissions office needs them. Have your school send current (no older than 6 months), official (sealed) transcripts to us. Or you can bring them to our office in Davis Hall. See our contact information.
Do your courses transfer?
You will receive an email notification shortly after you are admitted that will direct you to your student center which will let you know which of your courses transfer. Once you receive this notification, you will want to print off a copy of your evaluation from your student center in MyMav and make an appointment with your advisor as soon as possible to ensure there are no surprises. Or see if we have a special Articulation Agreement with your college.
Have you made an advising appointment with your academic advisor?
All students at UT Arlington are required to meet with their academic advisor at least once a semester in order to prepare for the next semester’s courses. You will not be able to enroll in classes until this appointment is complete so make sure you meet them asap. Plus, your academic advisor is a great source of academic information on campus so it’s a good idea to get to know them well.
Do you need letters of recommendation?
The University does not require transfer students to submit letters of recommendation for admission. But the academic program you’re trying to get into may need them, so check with the academic college/school and see if they require letters of recommendation. It’s never too early to start requesting them from the appropriate sources.
Have you checked the status of your admission application?
Once you apply to the university, you will receive a net id specifically for you and a default password that you will want to change to something you can remember. When you receive this information, it is important to activate it right away so you can electronically check the status of your application in your student center in MyMav.
Have you applied for housing?
You don't have to be accepted to submit your housing application. You need only to have applied and received your student ID number. On campus space fills up quickly, so it's important to get your application in early. Apply for housing online.
Have you made parking arrangements?
If you’re commuting, you’ll need a parking permit.
Spend your Spring Break doing more than getting a tan by volunteering for projects in Florida, California, New Orleans, or other locales.
