The University of Utah Transfer Center

Are you thinking about transferring to the University of Utah? Or have you already applied and been admitted to the University of Utah and are wondering what your next steps are? Visit the University of Utah’s Transfer Center in University College.

Potential Transfer Students

If you are a potential transfer student, meet with an advisor to discuss academic planning so the courses you take before transferring will meet requirements at the U. You will be able to set up a transfer timeline and get help understanding the application and registration deadlines. Our advisors will discuss basic information about U of U majors/minors and connect you with your departmental advisor. Transfer Center advisors will also help you find a major that is right for you and will help students feel welcome and comfortable about transferring to the U.

Current Transfer Students

If you are a current student and have questions about transfer credits and what your next steps are at the U, meet with an advisor to determine if transfer courses can be used to meet U Bachelors Degree requirements. If transfer courses are not coded for General Education credit, work with an advisor to determine whether those courses can be substituted for one of these requirements. Learn about U policies and procedures and General Education and Bachelors Degree requirements. If you are undecided in your major, meet with one of our advisors for transfer orientation and explore different major/minors at the U.

Salt Lake Community College Transfer Students

If you are attending SLCC and would like to transfer to the U, meet with one of our Transfer Center advisors at SLCC’s Redwood Campus. Our advisors are in the student center at the Redwood campus from 9am – 2pm every Tuesday and Wednesday.

For the tenth year in a row, the University of Utah will hold its Major Exploration Expo. With more than 100 academic departments and student support agencies gathered in one place, the Expo is the biggest and best place to explore majors, minors, internships, and research and learning abroad opportunities. It’s free, it’s casual, it’s informative, and fun.

How does it work?

From 10am to 2pm, faculty, staff, and student representatives of the University will host walk-up tables in the A. Ray Olpin Union Ballroom in the Union Building. It’s a meet-and-greet setting, a chance to chat informally with the experts from that program, to gather information, and enjoy some face time with professors and staff in an inviting, friendly atmosphere. The key here is casual. No appointments, no plans, no transcripts—just you and the major representative talking about the fields of study intriguing you.

Already have a major?

Program representatives are eager to chat with you about minors, internships, research, further education, service and leadership projects, and career opportunities. This is a chance for you to explore ways to further tailor and diversify your degree, ensuring you get the most out of your time at the U.

Why explore?

When students are excited about, and engaged in, their studies, they more easily earn better grades, build stronger interpersonal networks, develop better professional skills, and learn how to articulate their assets after completing their degree. Finding the right major means finding a deeper and more satisfying U of U experience, with better opportunities for life after college. The Expo makes the beginning of your major exploration process easy, stress free, and enjoyable. It’s an open invitation to the simplest way to see so much of what the University of Utah has to offer, and it’s all in one place.
