  • Next Steps for Transfer Students

    Now that you’ve taken the first step and submitted your application, it’s time to take the next steps toward transferring to Capital.

    1. Transcript Review

    Once you're accepted, your college transcript will be reviewed for transfer course equivalency. You will receive a copy of the degree audit once the courses have been reviewed. A faculty adviser will determine how the courses apply to the degree, so you should contact the Admission Office to schedule a meeting with a faculty adviser to find out how your major classes transfer and how long it will take to complete your degree.

    2. Financial Aid

    Good news! Transfer students (except Conservatory) are automatically considered for scholarships and grants. Just submit your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) with Capital’s financial aid code (003023). Once you've been accepted and we have your FAFSA, we'll send your financial aid award packet. That should happen in March for fall term and October for spring semester.

    3. Submit Your Deposit

    Once you've checked out your financial aid award, you need to submit the enrollment deposit to reserve a space in your class. See your acceptance letter for details. The deposit is $300 for residential students and $200 for commuter students.

    4. Schedule Your Classes

    The advising folder will be sent to your faculty adviser upon receipt of the enrollment deposit. The adviser will contact you to set up an appointment to register when it is time. Registration begins in November for spring semester and April for fall enrollment.

    5. Complete Your Paperwork

    We'll also send you a packet of information about the Student Personnel Record, Health History Form, Housing Application, and Housing Release Form.

    6. Choose a Way to Pay

    The Student Accounts Office will send information about your e-bill and payment options to your Capital e-mail account.

    7. Attend Transfer Student Orientation

    You and your family members are invited to attend Transfer Transition Orientation. (Early January for spring semester and late August for fall semester)
