Transfer Advising at Clarkson

Complete Financial Aid

Review your financial aid package to make sure you understand your award. Feel free to contact your transfer advisor with any questions. To make the process as smooth as possible, we list all required forms in your CU account under "To-Do Items." Make sure to check back often, in case we require any additional forms.

Start the Credit Transfer Process

The number of credits you are able to transfer will depend on a number of factors. If you are coming from an institution with a 2+2 or 3+2 articulation agreement with Clarkson University, some of your credits may be automatically approved, provided your transcripts show proper course selection.

If a transfer agreement does not exist with your college, be assured that we will work with you to maximize how your previously earned coursework applies toward a bachelor's degree from Clarkson.

Choose Housing and Dining Plans

Most undergraduate students live on campus throughout their entire college experience. As a transfer student, you are guaranteed on-campus housing, but you also have the option to live off campus. Our housing choices include residence halls, suites and apartments, and you can additionally opt to be part of a Living-Learning Community. For dining, we offer six campus meal plans that can be used in our campus dining locations.

Register for Orientation

Orientation and Move-In Weekend are held each year in late August. Transfer students get their own dedicated move-in day, filled with icebreakers and other activities to meet new friends. Orientation also includes events like the Student Resource Fair, the CUSA Carnival and the Convocation to welcome you to our community.
