How difficult is it to transfer from a university in one state to a university in another?

After receiving my Bachelor's in Journalism in Florida, I want to start my career while working towards my Master's in New York and plan on transferring to Columbia. I am worried that if I'm not recruited, the transfer process will be very expensive and extensive. Even though it would kick start my career, I don't want to graduate with a Master's and tons of debt. #journalism #masters #college-transfer #bachelors #debt #new-york #florida #columbia-university

Samantha’s Answer

Students who wish to attend to Colombia University must apply as a new student, the school does not offer any specific applications for transfers. The application process is easy to fill out, you must have the following documents in order to apply for this school.
$100 nonrefundable application fee
Official transcript(s)
Three letters of recommendation
Writing test
Proof of English language proficiency (where applicable for non-native speakers of English)
General essays on personal and professional interests
Specialization essay (for applicants to Stabile investigative and documentary programs)
Resume
Journalistic or written work samples
No GRE or other exams required except for in some dual degree programs

(Here is the link to the Deadlines and Application page for the school of interest: https://journalism.columbia.edu/deadlines-and-application-requirements)
Another important thing to do is making sure you are filling out applications before the dates the schools ask for them, the dates are more current on the Deadlines and Application page.
When applying for this school, the application is $100. The school does have a date for when they send out Admission Decisions (whether or not they accept you into their school) to all students. If you do get accepted, the next step would be to apply for classes, check out what financial aid you can get for the degree and living, and etc. If you do not get accepted, you may have to wait until the next semester to apply again.

Hopefully this helps you while you are applying for Colombia University! Good Luck!

I would suggest talking to an advisor at Columbia with the graduate program you are interested in. They should be knowledgeable about the process of transferring credits, and may even be able to give you specific information about the likelihood of credits transferring from a specific school.
