Transferring to MTSU College of Liberal Arts

Transferring to a new school can be stressful and confusing. The College of Liberal Arts has dedicated advisors that want to make this transition as smooth as possible. The first step for newly admitted students is to register to attend a Transfer CUSTOMS orientation session.  During your orientation session, the college advisor will review your transcripts and show you how courses will fulfill MTSU's graduation requirements.  If a course does not fulfill a general education, major, or minor requirement then it will most likely be used as an elective. In general most majors require a certain number of electives in order to reach the 120 hours required for graduation. After meeting with an advisor, you will be able to register for the upcoming semester. Please remember that all holds must be removed before registration.  You can review your Pipeline account to view holds and registration times.
