Transfer Process

There are a number of steps that you must take in order to remain on track and ensure a successful transfer:


Choose a Major

  • Choose a major and a transfer institution early  – The earlier you decide on a major and identify a transfer institution the more likely you will be to graduate on time and transfer successfully.  You will also become better aware of prerequisites and required transfer courses, have more time to research institutions and scholarships, increase your chances of internships, and be more likely to join student organizations and interest clubs.

Develop an Electronic Individualized Education Plan (eIEP)

  • Develop an electronic Individualized Education Plan (eIEP) – once you decide on a major, you will be able to develop a term-by-term educational plan for your entire program. Your educational plan should combine general education requirements with major course requirements. eIEP's can be completed with the assistance of your Academic and Career Advisor as well as your Faculty Advisor. 


Check your Degree Audit and meet with your Academic Advisor or your Faculty Advisor regularly. 

  • Check your degree audit and meet with your Academic & Career Advisor or your Faculty Advisor regularly – Check your Degree Audit regularly to keep track of your academic progress and program requirements. Visit an Academic and Career Advisor on a regular basis to learn about new academic policies and to make sure that you take the required courses and meet other criteria for entry into the transferrable program of your choice.


Apply for Admission

  • Apply for Admission – Colleges and universities, as well as selective admission programs and baccalaureate programs offered at Miami Dade College have specific deadlines for receiving completed applications, fees and transcripts.

Identify Methods to Finance your Education
