Crafting the perfect transfer application takes time; you need to fill in your activities list, write a personal statement, craft supplemental essays, participate in interviews, and find recommenders. How much time you need depends on various factors, such as your target colleges, your writing and editing proficiency, and how busy your schedule is.
We’ve worked with students with differing needs – some students finished their applications in two months, whereas others used eight. However, from what we’ve seen working with countless transfer applicants, we recommend starting the application process at least four months prior to the deadline. This gives you enough time to craft and refine your application to increase your chances of acceptance.

The college transfer application process can take time – transfer application deadlines typically fall between March and July. We recommend starting your application at least four months before the deadline, but you can begin working on your application as early as the summer before your classes.
