Follow the checklist below to apply as a transfer student, an option open to both U.S. and international students. Your admission application serves as your application for merit scholarships.

Transfer students should have a college GPA of 3.0 or higher. If you have completed less than one full year of college, we only look at part of your high school record — typically eight courses.

You are encouraged to apply as soon as your application is complete. Most transfer students will receive an admissions decision two to four weeks after their application is completed.

  • At least one letter of recommendation from a recent instructor
    • The Common Application’s Academic Evaluation Form serves a good cover sheet for a letter of recommendation

  2. CSS Profile (need-based aid for U.S. and international applicants)
  3. FAFSA (federal financial aid for U.S. applicants only)

Additional items to submit if you are an international student:
