Applicants are notified by email of updates in their admission portal. If admitted*, a congratulations message will be displayed with a prompt to complete the Transfer Reply Form where you commit to attending SCSU. If you applied as a full-time student, a $200 deposit is required; if you applied as a part time, no deposit is necessary.
Initial Credit Evaluation for Admitted Students
Around this time, accepted students are also sent an initial transfer credit evaluation**, based on their official transcripts, to show which credits are currently accepted. This will include steps to setting up their SCSU student portal (MySCSU) where Degree Works can be used to review plans of study. View the Video Tutorial on How to Access and Use the Degree Evaluation Tool
Credits that have not previously been transferred to SCSU from other institutions will be submitted to program coordinators for review at this time.
Advising, Course Registration, Housing, and More
After completing the Transfer Reply Form and submitting a deposit (if required), accepted students are sent a ‘Welcome’ email with a link to view their NEXT STEPS webpage. This resource guides admitted students through their remaining steps to becoming a Southern Owl.
The Next Steps link in your ‘Welcome’ email provides information on how to schedule an appointment for advisement and registration, apply for housing, sign up for the TRANSFERmation orientation, and more!
Financial aid packages are awarded after a student has been accepted to the university. Please refer to the financial aid website for the most up to date information.
We encourage accepted students to meet one-on-one with SCSU's Financial Literacy Director, Lew DeLuca, who will go over payment plan options, financial aid and scholarship opportunities. Learn how to maximize your educational investment by scheduling a Financial Advising & Literacy appointment!
*Admission is to the university.
**An initial transfer credit evaluation reviews prior coursework and is subject to change. Evaluations are also reviewed by the Department Chair of the intended major. Accepted students may receive additional course credit instead of electives after their secondary evaluation is complete.
