Students Walking

Timeline

Our goal is to make transferring to HBU as easy as possible. Whether you plan to start at HBU in the fall or spring, we have developed a timeline to help guide you through the application process. HBU has rolling admissions, but the sooner you apply, the better!  Select your entry term below for guidance on what you need to be doing each month as you prepare to become a HBU Husky.
