Step 3: Planning to Apply

Transfer students are encouraged to first apply for admission to the University of Arizona. Please visit UA Admissions to learn how to apply and begin your application for UA admission as a transfer student. Submit your application no earlier than one semester prior to your desired term of enrollment. Please review the application deadlines based on your desired starting semester.

Students who have not yet been accepted into the professional program will enter the College of Education as pre-professional majors and work on general education and business foundation coursework. Many transfer students apply for professional admission during their last semester at a community college, while others transfer to the UA as pre-professional majors and apply to the professional program in a future semester. Speak with your COE advisor about your individual plan.

The professional admission application process is separate from the admission application to the University of Arizona and takes place in February (and September for Elementary Education ESL).
