Admit It! transfers: you’re grateful for Leap Day, it gives you one extra day to prep your application. Does the impending March 1 application deadline seem way too close at hand? If it does, we feel you but it’s an exciting time. Now that our freshman applications are pretty much processed we’ve been missing the whirring sound of the printer going non-stop, the constant clicking of the stapler, the ruffling of papers that are being sorted and alphabetized. We’re super excited to receive your applications and begin the review process.
But that’s enough about us; this blog is for you. We just wanted to give you a quick reminder about what is required and how to submit everything. The deadline is just one short week away after all. You can access any of these forms from our website.
Required Application Components
- Transfer Common Application and William & Mary Supplement to the Transfer Common Application
- Transfer Common Application Essay (which addresses why you wish to transfer)
- $60 application fee (waived for any student who has submitted a letter of intent for guaranteed admission and Richard Bland students)
- High School Transcript or copy of GED
- College transcript from every college/university attended
- SAT or ACT score (required only for students who have not completed two full-time semesters of college at time of application)
- Mid-semester grades (not due until March 28)
- Teacher Recommendation(s)
- The Common Application’s College Official’s Report (if you do not submit this with your application and you are admitted, you will be sent a W&M version of this form at that time)
- A fine art submission
- The optional essays on the W&M Supplement to the Transfer Common Application – while optional this information is most helpful and therefore it is in your best interest to answer these questions if applicable
All of the above can be submitted online except teacher recommendations, transcripts, the College Official’s Report and mid-semester grades. The first three can be submitted by mail. Mid-semester grades can be submitted via fax (757-221-1242). Art submissions can be submitted online via a hyperlink or via mail, and SAT/ACT scores should be reported directly from the testing agency.
Best of luck to all of you finishing up your application and to the over 200 of you who have already submitted one. And if you have any last-minute questions, just post them in the comments section and we’ll be happy to provide an answer.
You get to the applying, and we’ll get to the reading.
