At the end of the semester, once your final grades are posted, please have your final official transcript sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at the University of New Haven; your Transfer Enrollment Counselor will send you an updated TCE.
All new transfer students are remotely registered for classes their first semester based on their TCE. At SOAR you will meet with an academic advisor and can make changes to that schedule.
You will be notified by your Transfer Enrollment Counselor if you are required to take the Math and/or English placement tests, based on your TCE.
