Below is some more information on the process and criteria required when transferring to Make School’s Bachelor of Applied Computer Science program.

Transfer Process

Applying to Make School

Transfer Students must complete the general application for the Bachelor’s program in Applied Computer Science.

After Submission

Upon reading the application, an admissions officer will either schedule an interview and/or request the documents necessary to process an application. Please see the criteria listed in the next section for more details on which documents are required for each unique situation.

Transfer Criteria

All transfer students with 24 or more university/college units will be required to provide the following:

  • Official transcripts from all colleges or universities attended
  • Official documentation of proof of HS graduation

Please note the following details with regards to the transfer process:

  • Students with at least one semester of transferable credit from an accredited post-secondary institution will be considered transfer students. Typically, transfer students have completed 24 or more university/college units.
  • If a transfer student has fewer than 24 units at the time the application is complete, the student must submit an official high school or GED transcript and SAT/ACT scores. However, if a student has been out of high school for more than 2 years, SAT/ACT scores are not required.
  • There is no limit to the total number of credits a student can transfer to Make School. There are, however, restrictions on how the credit applies toward graduation requirements. For questions or more detailed inquiries, email .
  • Veteran Applicants: The process and criteria for veterans is the same as other transfer students.
