Transfer Admissions Appeal Process

Transfer applicants who were denied admission to the Carlson School have the option to appeal their admission decision through a formal process. We ask that applicants who wish to appeal their admission decision review our admission criteria very carefully and provide new documented and compelling information that was not submitted prior in their application materials. Examples would be a letter indicating why you would like your admission decision reviewed, new college transcript with considerably higher grades than the previous semester, documentation of a grade that was changed to a higher grade, thus affecting the GPA, etc. Examples that would not be compelling are letters or essays on why you are seeking admission to the Carlson School or letters of recommendation or reconsideration.
