Transfer Students

Students who have already completed at least 28 semester credits or 42 quarter credits of continuous enrollment at regionally accredited colleges or universities will be considered for admission on the basis of that academic record (rather than their secondary school record) provided they have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. Students who have completed fewer than 28 semester or 42 quarter credits should apply as first-year applicants, but may be granted advanced credit for that work.

Transfer applicants must submit an application for admission and official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended. A personal essay is required, and a recommendation letter is strongly encouraged but may be waived at the discretion of the Office of Admission. The transfer application deadline is August 1. Any applications submitted after this date will be considered by petition only.

College Transcripts

Students are required to include in their applications for admission official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended. Official final transcripts for high school and college course work are required prior to attending classes. Financial assistance, in the form of both merit- and need-based aid from the College, is dependent on academic performance and on the receipt of transcripts. Any discrepancies between final transcripts and those presented at the time of admission will be reviewed by the Vice President for Enrollment Management and could result in changes to financial aid awards and/or violations of our Honor Code.

Credits earned at regionally-accredited colleges or universities will be evaluated by the Registrar's Office, and credit will be given in accordance with College policy only after a student has been accepted. Please see Transfer Credit for information and policy related to the transfer evaluation process.
