Transfer Student FAQS
Where do I send my transcripts to get evaluated?
To request a credit evaluation, you must contact your admission counselor. If you do not know who your admission counselor is, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you’ve contacted your counselor and requested an evaluation, students must email all final transcripts to email@example.com.
Why do I have to submit my high school transcripts?
High school transcripts not only assist the admission review committee in seeing a full picture of your academic preparedness for Mount Union’s curriculum, but they also allow us to verify that you received a diploma.
Why does the Dean of my previous school need to check a box to complete my application?
The Dean’s Evaluation shows us whether you are in good standing or not at your current or previous institution(s), which is a requirement for admission to Mount Union. Additionally, conduct issues are considered in admission decisions.
Why can’t Mount Union share information with my parents?
Mount Union adheres to federal policy that an applicant’s educational record is his/her property and as institution does not have the right to release information within the record.
How long does it take to hear back about whether or not I’ve been accepted?
Once an application for admission is completed, it moves through a review process. It may be determined that additional documentation or information is required to support your application for admission. The volume of applications being processed by the office of admission during any given time can also impact the time it takes for your application to be reviewed and an admission decision reached. Rest assured, the review committee will work as quickly as possible and keep you informed along the way as they reach an appropriate admission decision.
How can I check on the status of my application?
Applicants may check their application status by logging in to their application account or by calling the Office of Admission at 1-800-992-6682.
