Admitted Transfers (Main Campus)

Congratulations on your admission to Towson University! If you’re still considering your college choices, we’re happy to help you decide if TU is right for you. 

Follow the steps below to complete your enrollment process:

  1. Activate your Towson University NetID/email account.                 
    get started, simply activate your NetID online. To complete the process, you will need your seven-digit TU student ID number, which you can find on your Offer of Admission letter.  If you have difficulty with your account, please contact the Student Computing Services Desk at or call 410-704-5151.
  2. Explore housing opportunities.          
    Housing for transfer students is awarded on a space-available basis. You can find out if housing is available by logging on to the Department of Housing and Residence Life’s online housing system. If housing is available, complete the online housing application and submit a $350 nonrefundable housing deposit to secure your spot. While this is a nonrefundable deposit, in the extraordinary circumstance that the university must close campus housing to comply with federal and state guidance, TU will provide a refund on the housing deposit.

    If you will not be living on campus, we encourage you to learn more about Off-Campus Housing.

    If you have any questions about university housing, please contact the Department of Housing and Residence Life at 410-704-2516.

  3. Submit your Enrollment Contract and fee.

    To officially accept our offer of admission, please submit your Enrollment Contract and nonrefundable $300 enrollment fee by the specific date on your admission letter.  This is a one-time fee to secure your spot in the incoming class and is not credited to your bill.  If you have questions, please contact University Admissions at 410-704-2113.  Official credit evaluations take place after submission of your enrollment contract and nonrefundable enrollment fee.

  4. Apply for and/or review financial award guide.
