5. Pay your application fee.
A $45 non-deferrable, non-refundable fee (or fee waiver) is required with your application. If you apply online, you will be able to pay the application fee with a credit card or electronic check, or if eligible, you can choose an application fee waiver.

6. Send your transcripts.
Submit to University Admissions an official transcript from each college or university you’ve attended. If you’ve earned fewer than 30 college credits, a high school transcript is also required. Official transcripts may be sent from each of your colleges or universities directly via email to Admissions_Documents@Towson.edu .

7. Submit standardized test scores.
Standardized test scores are not typically required for transfer applicants unless they have earned fewer than 30 transferable credits. For students who have fewer than 30 transferable credits, Towson requires that you submit the SAT or ACT test scores for admission to TU.

If you are submitting an SAT score, Towson University’s College Board identification number is 5404. For the ACT, our identification number is 1718.

Submitting an essay with your Towson application is required. The topic is up to you.
