What are colleges looking for when admitting a transfer student?
Colleges may have very specific needs when it comes to admitting transfers. Depending on the school, the year, and the semseter, there may be very real factors constraining the transfer admission process. For example, a school may be out of financial aid to award. It may not have any housing left to offer. It may need to fill a particular spot on a roster in a certain sport. These factors can change from semester to semester and year to year. If there's a certain school you're most interested in, it pays to learn as much as you can about that school's transfer process.
