Although not a requirement, we encourage students to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FASFA) online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. In addition, if you have been awarded a Federal Stafford or Federal Direct Loan (subsidized or unsubsidized), or Federal Parent loan, contact your lender or servicer to cancel the remaining disbursements and obtain a deferment form. Contact the financial aid office at the college or university you are transferring from for loan exit information. If you have been awarded a Federal Perkins Loan, notify the financial aid office at the college or university you are transferring from to let them know of your plans to transfer and obtain a deferment form. A loan exit interview will be required.
If you have not successfully passed (C or better) college level English and/or Math, you will need to schedule a COMPASS assessment for placement in English and Reading courses and the ALEKS for Math placement. More information about both tests are located here; also included are the dates and times these tests are available to be taken and a sample COMPASS test
