Transfer Days 

Prospective transfer students are highly encouraged to visit TLU’s campus during a Transfer Day this summer. This event is for transfer students at any stage of the application process looking to gain admission to TLU. Transfer Days provide prospective students the opportunity to see campus and hear about the admissions and financial aid processes, complete their application for admission, and receive a preliminary transcript evaluation showing what transfers to TLU. Students that have completed all of their documents prior to/during a Transfer Day will receive a same-day admission decision (must have a minimum of 2.75 cumulative GPA for same-day decisions. Cumulative GPA’s below 2.75 will require up to 2 additional weeks).

We also introduce the summer Freshman Experience (FREX) project. Students and their families enjoy lunch on campus and may attend optional afternoon sessions for various academic programs as well as information on academic advising, athletics, dining services, and campus safety.
