Transfer Application Deadlines: 4-Year Colleges and Universities

Priority Deadlines for Colleges and Universities


Colleges with priority deadlines will give full consideration to all applications received and completed by that date. Applications received or completed after the priority deadline may be reviewed on a space-available basis.


When applying for admission to a 4-year college or university, it is important to be aware of the deadlines for submission of materials as well. Contact your Cascadia academic advisor or the admissions advisor at the school of your choice for assistance.


Being admitted into your choice university does not guarantee admittance into your major. Many departments require separate applications and different deadlines. Make sure to contact the department in which you want to be accepted.


Deadlines often vary depending on the program or school that you are applying to. While many of those deadlines are firm, some schools may have rolling admissions. Schools that use rolling admissions accept applications until they have filled all the spots.


If you plan to apply for financial aid, apply in early January for best results despite your school's financial aid deadline.

About Internships

An internship benefits everyone:


Employers get highly motivated interns with current skills.Students gain work experience in a field they may choose for a future career. Students will meet and work with people who can suggest future directions and make referrals.


Look for an internship that's a good fit for you and your career path. An internship is more than a summer job — it provides training and experience related to a career.


Internships for Academic Credit


At Cascadia, some programs require internships for academic credit. Other programs offer elective credit for internships. For details, see Internship Programs and Requirements.


An internship for credit can be paid or unpaid, can begin at any time, and can vary in length. Students can earn up to 5 quarter credits for an internship.
