The Common Application for Transfer has two areas within the application where you may be asked to submit transcripts. Each of the two processes are outlined below:
Academic History- this section will indicate which schools require a transcript sent directly to the Common App.
Program Materials- this section will indicate whether each college or university selected requires a transcript sent directly to that campus.
Sending transcripts to Common Application
After entering colleges attended, there will be an option to “download Transcript Matching Form” for each college attended. Consult the “Program Requirements” box (#1 below) to determine which of your Common App schools need official transcripts. If one or more college indicates that this is needed, download the form (#2 below) and request your transcript to be mailed to the address on the Matching Form. Only one transcript needs to be sent to Liaison/ Common Application even if multiple schools are listed under "program requirements." This form will need to be attached electronically to your official transcript request.
The recipient address should be:
Transcript Processing Center

PO Box 9135
