Transfer applicants to the University of Utah are students who attended another college or university. Students may be applying from another U.S. institution, or a post-secondary school in another country.

As a transfer applicant to the University of Utah Asia Campus, you will go through the same rigorous application and admissions process as students applying to our Salt Lake City campus. You must submit the same documentation and meet the same standards to be offered admission.

Our admissions decisions are released on a rolling basis—the earlier you apply, the earlier you will hear back from us, and the more competitive you may be for both admission and scholarships.

Students who submit their online application prior to the Priority Application Deadline are given priority scholarship consideration.

Be sure to review the deadlines carefully, and as you move through the admissions process, please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.

Please note that the applications process for transfer students is different than for freshman. Prospective students who have taken courses at other institutions should confirm whether they should follow the incoming freshman or transfer student application process.

You can apply online by submitting our online application. (Please note that Internet Explorer can cause compatibility issues. We recommend using Chrome, Firefox, or Safari to complete your application.)

The non-refundable application fee is $65.  Please do not send cash.
