Our transfer admissions counselors and advisors will work with you to choose the quickest and most efficient way to finish your degree.

Transfer Students

If ALL of the following criteria are true for you, then you are in the right place and can apply to UDC as a transfer student:

  1. You seek either an Associate degree from UDC’s Community College or a Bachelor’s degree from UDC’s Flagship University.
  1. You have completed high school and are currently attending or have ever attended another college or university (either inside or outside the U.S.).

Rule #2 includes those wanting to earn a second bachelor’s degree. However, if you have ever attended UDC as a degree-seeking student, including having graduated from UDC’s Community College, please use these returning student admissions guidelines instead.

Attention Transfer Applicants to UDC who will seek Financial Aid

If you have or will request Financial Aid (via FAFSA), the University requires— for financial aid purposes — verification of high school completion.
In addition to your college transcripts, please submit a high school transcript or GED transcript to complete your admissions application.  This applies to Transfer applicants who intend to request UDC Financial Aid.  You will be denied packaging for Financial Aid if your high school transcript is not on file!
