Transfer Student FAQs
Do I need to submit my high school records?
Yes. All undergraduate students are required to submit a copy of their high school transcript regardless of credits earned or Associate’s Degree earned. The transcript must have a date of graduation or date of completion on it.
Do I need to submit official transcripts to complete my application?
No. Unofficial transcripts are sufficient to review applications, evaluate credits and award scholarships. Official transcripts are required to have on file to update any courses still in progress at the time of application, remain matriculated in first semester coursework at the Mount, and release federal and state aid you may have earned.
Do I need to fill out a separate application to be considered for a scholarship?
No. When you apply for admission, your credentials will also be reviewed for merit-based scholarships for transfer students.
How many credits can I transfer to the College?
Students who have attended two-year institutions can transfer up to 65 total credits. Students who have attended four-year institutions may transfer up to 90 credits. Please note that depending upon a student’s intended major, transferred coursework may differ from what is denoted on your course by course evaluation.
When will I find out which credits will transfer from my previous college?
A preliminary credit evaluation can be completed ahead of an application. Official credit evaluations are included in acceptance packets.
How long does it take to receive an admission decision?
Applications are reviewed almost every weekend. Application review for the spring term begins in October and in March for the fall term.
How do I pick my classes?
Students must first be admitted to the College and have their prior coursework evaluated in order to not be registered for duplicate coursework. Only after a student chooses to enroll at the College by submitting their non-refundable enrollment deposit, can a course schedule be drafted by an Academic Adviser. Students will be able to review their proposed course schedule on their Self-Service account, or with their adviser via email, phone, or in-person appointment.
