When do Columbia transfer decisions come out?

Hey, so I applied for a transfer to Columbia and I'm really anxious about the decision. Does anyone know when the transfer decisions typically come out? Also, if anyone has gone through this process before, please feel free to share any tips or experiences you've had. Thanks!

Hey there! This year’s transfer decisions for Columbia will be released by June 1. You'll be notified of the decision via the application portal, so make sure to keep an eye on your email for updates and check the portal frequently on this day.

As for experiences and advice, here are a few tips that transfer applicants often find helpful:

1. Be patient: It's natural to feel anxious while waiting for decisions, but try to stay calm and remember that schools have a lot of applications to process. Engage in your current coursework and extracurricular activities to keep your mind occupied.

2. Start researching: In case you're accepted, take the time to gather information about housing, financial aid deadlines, and orientation opportunities at Columbia. This will make your transition easier and ensure you don't miss out on any essential steps.

3. Connect with other applicants: Some transfer applicants find it helpful to join online forums or social media groups where they can discuss their experiences, ask questions, and offer support to others going through the same journey.

4. Prepare for all outcomes: While it's great to be optimistic about your chances of getting in, also have a plan regarding your current college (or other colleges you applied to transfer to) in case you don't get accepted. Continue to give the best you can to your current academic and extracurricular pursuits, and try to find ways to make the most of your time there.

I hope this information is useful to you, and I wish you the best of luck with your transfer application!
