A traditional transfer student has attended a non-community college post-secondary institution(s), is 'under' the age of 21 and has not earned a bachelor’s degree. Students who have earned a bachelor’s degree and would like to earn a second bachelor’s degree are classified as a second degree student and not a transfer student.
Special Considerations for Traditional Transfer Students
- Many campuses in the UNC system have pathways designed to help transfer students choose the right classes.
- Plan to do as much preparation for your major as possible prior to transfer.
- Campuses will complete a course-by-course evaluation of prior college courses to determine transfer credit at the time of admission.
- Second degree seeking students are advised to talk with a transfer counselor prior to application to ensure that they meet requirements.
