The deadline for Spring 2014 transfer applications is coming up soon: October 15, 2013!  There’s still plenty of time to put your application together, but the sooner you start, the better – transfers in particular have a lot of information to assemble, and you don’t want to be stuck waiting on a transcript in the mail when the deadline rolls around.
