  • You are considered a Transfer Student if you have attended a higher learning institution since graduating from high school. This applies even if you’re still in your first year, will not transfer credits, and if the institution was outside of the United States. Students who have already earned a degree and/or are starting a new major are still Transfer Students. Filling out the correct application is very important. If you hold a temporary student visa, you are an International Student
