Transfer applications up 40 percent

Over 1,400 students submitted transfer applications this year, an increase of about 40 percent from last year, according to Director of Admission Annie Cappuccino.Transfer enrollment will also likely be slightly higher next year than it has been in recent years, Cappuccino said. The Office of Admission expects to enroll 80 transfers in the fall and 40 transfers in the spring.

The University received 24,988 applications for the class of 2013, the highest number in the University's history. Regular admission decisions, which were released March 31, set a record low acceptance rate for the University at 10.8 percent.

The University received 955 transfer applications last year and 1,050 applications the previous year.

Transfer applicants were able to apply online for the first time this year, Cappuccino said. That change may help account for the spike, she said, but she is unsure exactly what factors are responsible.

"We'd like to think (the rise) is due to the popularity of Brown," she said.

Transfer applicants will likely receive their decisions in mid-May, Cappuccino said.
