Who is considered a transfer student?

A transfer student is defined as a student entering the institution for the first time, but known to have previously attended a post-secondary institution the fall semester after high school graduation and beyond.

When should I request my official transcript?

We need a transcript from each college or university you have previously attended. If you are currently enrolled in college-level courses, an admissions decision can be rendered on an in-progress transcript. 

Will I need to submit my high school transcript along with my college transcript?

If you have 24 or more transferable credits, a high school transcript is not required. If you have fewer than 24 credits, a high school transcript is necessary.

Can I request an unofficial evaluation of my transcript to see how credits will apply to my prospective major? How?

We’d love to review your transcript! Please get in touch with Transfer Admissions Counselor Waleed Ahmed at waleed@longwood.edu or text 434-207-6514.

When will I know if I am accepted?

Once all necessary admission documents are received, an admissions decision will be made within 7-10 business days. 

When is the enrollment deposit due?

  • For Spring 2024 transfer students, the enrollment deadline is January 5, 2024.
  • For Fall 2024 transfer students, the enrollment deadline is May 1, 2024.

How will I know which credits I’ve earned will transfer?

Your official transfer credit evaluation will be emailed to you within 7-10 business days after you are admitted.

When and how will I register for my fall classes?

Your department chair or program director will register you for necessary classes for your major. If there are any classes that need to be filled, you can do so online after completing Start Here.

When and how do I sign up for on-campus housing?

For students starting in the fall semester, a housing survey will be emailed to you starting in June. Housing assignments will be communicated in July.
