Sub: Application Letter to Change College

Respected Sir,

(Write the actual reason)
I am writing this letter to you so that I can inform you that I want to change my college because the study here is very tough and the teacher usually doesn’t come to the class and they don’t even know how to handle the students. 

In previous college my grade was A+ and now after seeing the result of my midterm, I came to know that I am not going to learn anything here. So kindly issue my transfer letter so that I can continue the process. Thanks,(Till here..)

But before doing that, make sure you have done sufficient research about your new college.

Whether it has the following things or not, such as:-

  • Good faculty.
  • Lab Equipments.
  • Over all passing percentage of students.

Compare it with your college if you find something is not up to the mark you can cancel your plans or find a new college for you.

Documents required to submit in the new college.

Once you have given the letter to the college now, it’s time to gather some important documents you may need to submit to the college.

You won’t find any difficult to do this because you have done the same thing a year back while getting college admission.

Documents required to get admission in 2nd year of college.

  • Original 1st year result.
  • Migration certificate(Only required if you change the university).
  • 10th, 12th markesheet.
  • Domicile certificate.
  • Id proof(Voter ID aadhar).
  • Transfer certificate.

Note:- If you change the college, but the university is not changed, you don’t need any migration certificate. But if you are taking admission to any other university, you can request a migration certificate by writing a letter to your college.

Here I have written an article on migration certificates in detail. You can read this if you want to know more!
