After you're admitted as a transfer student

Congratulations! We’re so glad you found a new home as a Falcon. You have a few more things to check off your list before you begin classes.


We’ll remind you if you have any requirements – like mandatory advising appointments – to complete before you start classes. You also can view incomplete requirements on myBGSU (MyBGSU → Student Center → Action Items). Don’t hesitate to give the transfer team a call if you have any questions. 


You are required to meet with an academic advisor before scheduling classes for the upcoming semester. We will send you a text and email when it’s time to make your appointment.

Your advisor will help you:

  • Review your official transfer credit evaluation.

The Office of Transfer Credit Evaluation conducts a comprehensive review of your previous coursework within 5 to 7 business days after you’ve completed all of your admission requirements. It will provide you with an official assessment of how your credits will transfer to BGSU. 

  • Register for classes.

Your academic advisor will help you with course selection and let you know many credit hours you need to complete your degree.


You must file a FAFSA if you would like to be considered for financial aid.
