EMU program expedites transfer process to single day
YPSILANTI – Students planning to transfer to Eastern Michigan University this fall can complete the process in a single day during the Transfer in a Day program Friday, Aug. 27.
“Eastern Michigan graduates many students each year who begin as transfer students. The Transfer in a Day program allows a student to be admitted, receive advising and enroll for classes all in one day,” said Anne McKee, assistant director of EMU admissions.
The program has grown steadily from approximately 50 students in 2000 to an expected 125 students this year, said Angela Wafer, assistant director of transfer admissions.
Students start by calling for either a morning (7:30 a.m.– noon) or an afternoon (1-5 p.m.) program appointment. Students need to have their official transcript(s) in sealed envelope(s), a completed undergraduate application and the $30 application fee in hand prior to their appointments. The paperwork will be reviewed and the students will receive an unofficial tabulation of transfer credit, and an advising appointment where they also will register for classes.
The program is specifically for students who want to transfer and have a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher and 12 or more transferable credits from a community college or accredited university or college.
To make an appointment, call 1.800.GO-TO-EMU (468.6368) or EMU admissions, 734.487.3060.
