How to use Virtual Drop In:

Select the ConferZoom link and you will be placed in the waiting room. Please do not leave, as you will lose your place in line. Once a member of our staff is available, you'll be admitted to the lobby and if needed, placed into a break-out room with a member of our staff to provide one-on-one assistance.

Have you been Admitted?

Check your application portal at the university. Once admitted, you'll need to submit transcripts and other documentation.

If you have been denied and need to discuss options, please visit us during Drop-In, or Call/Chat with us to make an appointment. You may be eligible for an appeal. The Transfer Center team can evaluate your application and transcripts to determine if you should pursue this option.
