Students considering the possibility of transferring to another college at CMU or to a completely different institution are encouraged to talk to their academic advisor to discuss this option. Students' advisors can help determine if transferring to another college or institution makes the most sense. Advisors can also help explain the internal transfer process and in rare cases help with the transition out of CMU.
