New Transfer Students

Congratulations on your acceptance and welcome to UTC! 

As a new transfer student, there are several things you need to do to ensure a smooth transition to UTC. Begin by reviewing the Transfer Student Checklist below.

  • Set up your UTC account.  Check your MocsMail account on a daily basis.  This is the official form of communication between UTC staff, faculty, and students.  All important announcements regarding official UTC business will be sent to this email account.
  • Send official copies of all transcripts to UTC Admissions ASAP.  If you are currently enrolled in classes, you'll need to send an additional transcript once your final grades  are posted. 
  • Sign up for New Student Orientation.  Orientation is required for fall and spring transfer students; you will register for classes during orientation.  Students transferring during a summer session are strongly encouraged to sign up for the online orientation.  If you attend an online orientation, you must schedule an appointment with your academic advisor before you can register for classes.
  • Submit the Certificate of Immunization.  To avoid a registration hold, please make sure you have submitted your Certificate of Immunization form to Student Health Services before attending orientation. 
  • Transfer your Financial Aid.
  • Apply for Housing if you plan to live on-campus. 
      • Transfer MOCS is a living, learning community for new transfer students.  If interested, please complete the general housing application and the Transfer MOCS application.  Transfer MOCS students will be living in the Decosimo Apartments during the 2016-2017 school year. 
  • Get your official UTC student ID: MocsCard
  • Purchase a parking permit.  If you plan on driving to campus, you will need to purchase a parking permit each academic year.

Transfer Student Checklist

Do not delay in sending your transcripts to UTC.  The quicker UTC Admissions receives your transcripts, the quicker your transfer credit will be evaluated.  Once you have been accepted and have set up your UTC account, you may begin checking the status of your transfer credit.  Your unofficial transcript will show all of the courses taken at previous institutions and your MyMocsDegree will outline how your transfer credit counts towards your declared major at UTC. 

If you have signed up for an on-campus orientation session, you will be advised and register for classes during that session.  Students who complete the online orientation will need to schedule an appointment with their academic advisor after completing the orientation session.  Transfer students with a declared major are assigned a professional or faculty advisor within their respective academic departments.  If your major is undecided, your advisor is Kayla McAuliffe in the Center for Advisement.
