For Incoming Transfer Students
We guarantee housing to transfers who are admitted with 36 or less credits and who have submitted an enrollment deposit and housing application by July 1. Transfers students with more than 36 credits and those who also deposit after July 1 will be considered on a space available basis, based on the date the housing deposit is submitted.
FAQs - Transfer Students
I am a transfer student. Do I need to fill out the housing application for the Residence system?
All incoming transfer students who wish to live on campus should pay the additional $200 deposit for housing in their enrollment agreement. After your additional $200 housing deposit is processed, a housing application is entered into our database for a manual assignment. You may submit your top three housing preferences and/or roommate requests by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 1. Please send your request from your AU student email account, and include your AU ID number. Housing preferences and roommate requests cannot be guaranteed.
When will transfer students find out whether or not they have been assigned to University-provided housing?
Eligible transfer students will be assigned to housing by July 15th. Students can verify their assignment through the myau.american.edu student portal (Under "Life @ AU," then "University Housing Assignment," "Forward to Fall2013") after this date. If there is no assignment posted on that date, please contact email@example.com for more information. Assignment of transfer students with more than 36 credits will continue as space becomes available during the summer, based on deposit date.
