Admitted Students— Transfers

Group of students in class

Congratulations on your admission to Towson University. If you're still considering your transfer options, we’re happy to help you decide if TU is right for you. Come out for a football game or a concert and feel the energy of our campus for yourself. Stop by the University Store and stock up on Tiger swag. Take a tour of the area and see why Baltimore is on of the top college towns in the country.

We encourage you to visit campus again. Get in touch with a counselor or the department for your planned major and ask tough questions.

When you’re ready to accept your offer of admission, just complete the following steps. We look forward to seeing you.

1. Submit your Enrollment Contract and fee.
To officially accept our offer of admission, please follow the instructions in your admission packet that was mailed to you. Submit your Enrollment Contract and $300 enrollment fee to University Admissions by May 1 for fall admission, or the specific date on your admission letter for spring admission. If you have any questions, please contact University Admissions at 410-704-2113.

If you've been admitted to the Honors College, make sure to notify them of your intention to join at honors@towson.edu or 410-704-4677.

2. Activate your Towson University email account.
Towson will communicate with you using your TU student computing and email account, also referred to as your NetID. To get started, simply activate your NetID online. To complete the activation process, you will need your seven-digit TU student ID number, which is found on your Offer of Admission letter.

If you have difficulty activating your account, please contact the Student Computing Services Desk at scs@towson.edu or 410-704-5151, or visit Tech Overture Online.

3. Submit your housing request.

Housing for transfer students is awarded on a space-available basis. You can find out if housing is available by logging on to the Department of Housing and Residence Life's online housing request system.

If housing is available, complete the online housing request and submit a $350 non-refundable housing deposit to secure your spot.

Contact the Department of Housing and Residence Life at 410-704-2516 with questions.

4. Complete Math Placement Testing (if required).
Some incoming transfer students are required to complete math placement testing. You will be notified by email about how to complete testing.

5. Complete Reading Placement Testing (if required).
Some incoming transfer students are required to complete reading placement testing. If required, you will be notified by email about how to complete testing.

6. Determine if your major is screened.
If you know what you want to study, it’s important that you determine if it is a screened or competitive program, as admission to TU does not guarantee admission to some majors. Screened or competitive majors have additional requirements, such as auditions, prerequisite courses or minimum GPAs. Knowing these requirements in advance will prepare you during the enrollment and registration process.

Contact the major department or consult the Undergraduate Catalog for more information on screened or competitive majors.

7. Submit final official high school or college transcript.

Please make arrangements for your previous college to send your official final high school or college transcript to University Admissions. The official transcript must be sealed in your school’s official envelope and mailed to: University Admissions, Towson University, 8000 York Road, Towson, MD 21252-0001. 

8. Review your Evaluation of Transfer Credit.
Your Evaluation of Transfer Credit will be posted before your Transfer Program Part I date. Upon completion, you will be emailed detailed instructions on how to review it at your Towson Online Services Student Center. Be sure to check your online evaluation, print and bring it with you to your Transfer Program Part I. Please allow 10-15 days for updated transfer information to post to your account. Below are the steps you need to access your evaluation:

  1. You must activate your NetID to gain access to Towson Online Services.
  2. Log into Towson Online Services
  3. Navigate to "Self-Service" in the menu of the left-side of the page
