Once the student is accepted and the Office of Admissions has received
official transcripts from all previous institutions, those transcripts
will be sent to the Registrar's Office for an official transfer
evaluation. Typically, transfer evaluations are completed and mailed
to the student within 10-14 days of the receipt of all official
transcripts. No unofficial evaluations will be completed and all
official transcripts must be received in order for an official evaluation
to be performed. In determining the transferability of academic
