Christopher Newport University Transfer Admission and Enrollment

A message from Christopher Newport University:

I hope this email finds you well! This is a very challenging time for all of us, to say the least, as we try to support our students through the many unprecedented adjustments we must make due to the pandemic, but we are all in this together. In an effort to support our students and partners, we wanted to send you some detailed information about how we can continue to best serve students with the admissions process.

The good news is that our office is fully operational, even though our campus is closed to the public through April 10th (as of now). We have made a few modifications. All of our admissions meetings and interviews will be conducted virtually during this time and email is the best way to contact us. Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8am-5pm.

While we are not offering campus visits or tours at this time, we recommend students take our virtual tour and watch our latest video to hear from Christopher Newport students about their experiences as Captains!

Please encourage students to email us at transfer@cnu.edu to schedule a phone or Skype meeting as needed. We are available for information meetings, admission advising meetings and questions! We are also offering transfer admission interviews via Skype and students can email us to schedule. We feel that the admission interview is a special part of the admissions process at Christopher Newport.

Students can find more information about our application online: http://cnu.edu/admission/transfer/. Our next priority application date is May 1. The deadline to apply is July 17. Students can apply now through the Common Application or Coalition Application.

Below are some links to our updated advising resources:

We are requesting that students have their admission related documentation sent to us electronically during this time. We accept transcripts and transfer college reports as official documents when they are sent directly from the school, and we understand that there may be some delay. Documents can be sent via email to transfer@cnu.edu or fax at 757-594-7711. Transcripts can continue to be sent via Parchment, National Student Clearinghouse, and E-Script if possible. Students can find the Transfer College Report and other admissions related documents linked on our website.

Please let us know if you have any questions or thoughts about how we can better serve you and your students. We will strive to keep the transfer process as seamless as possible despite the current landscape.

Sincerely,

Evanne Raible

Director of Transfer Enrollment Services
