I have learned to value the time spent speaking to professors because they are such amazing people. You just never know how much you can learn or unlearn from them.

I Have Questions About…

We know you probably have a million questions about what to do now that you’re admitted to Transy. We’ve tried to answer many of those here:

When do I need to make my final college decision?
You can make your college decision and ultimately send in your enrollment deposit at anytime, but the earlier the better. The sooner you deposit, the better chance you’ll have at early class registration and early selection of residence halls. Don’t wait too long, as choices do become limited.

How do I submit the $350 deposit?
The $350 deposit reserves your spot in our incoming class. You can pay online by electronic check, Visa, Master Card, Discover, American Express, Paypal or Venmo.

When will I know my out‑of‑pocket cost to attend Transylvania University?
Your international admissions counselor will provide you with your admission letter and financial package to attend Transylvania. If you have any questions, please reach out to Alice Schaaf.

Are there other forms I need to fill out?
There are a handful of documents you will complete over the summer to help us prepare for your arrival in August. Once you submit your deposit, we’ll direct you to more information on our website.

How are you handling COVID-19 on campus?
Transy has developed a thorough plan to keep our community as safe as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. Read our Healthy at Transy guidelines to learn about the protocols we have in place for housing, dining, cleaning and more.
