Transfer Offer Next Steps Checklist
ACCEPT YOUR OFFER OF ADMISSION
- To accept the offer, submit your $400 matriculation fee through your Application Status Page by June 1, 2020.
- Applicants admitted to the Summer term should accept the offer by May 15, 2020, or may be switched to Fall entry.
GET TO KNOW ONECAMPUS
- Finding things you need to be a part of the community is a lot easier with OneCampus. Go to onecampus.vt.edu for forms, portal entries, and more.
CREATE YOUR VT USERNAME
- Confirm the receipt and processing of your matriculation fee by looking for the word “acceptance” displayed in the Decision section of your Application Status Page. Once received, you will be able to create your username and email address by going to vt.edu/offer19/one-campus and search for “Create VT Username.”
SEND OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS
- As soon as you accept your offer of admission you should begin the process of sending official college transcripts and documents. Please send a final official transcript from any college or university attended, including for dual-enrollment work.
- If you are still completing coursework at a college or university, please send an official transcript from this school as soon as you accept the offer and a second transcript once your in-progress spring work has been completed with final grades. This will help speed up the official evaluation of your transfer credits. You should also send official AP/CLEP or other score reports for credit noted in your Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR). You are also required to update and resubmit the SRAR with your final course and grade information. The SRAR should be updated and ALL transcripts/ score reports with grade information through Spring 2020 should be received by June 15th, 2020. If you are enrolled in summer work, you will need to provide an additional official transcript and update the SRAR again as soon as possible after this work is completed. Sending a high school transcript is optional at this point but can be a good idea as well, especially if you have foreign language credit.
REVIEW SCHOLARSHIPS AND FINANCIAL AID
- Your scholarship/financial aid award information is likely contained in the first pages of your offer packet, but you can also review this information online via your Application Status Page.
