We welcome applications from transfer students for the fall and spring semesters. The deadline for fall semester applications is July 1. Spring semester applications are due by Dec. 1.
Admission to Susquehanna is selective, and all applicants should be in good academic and social standing at their previous college or university. We consider the quality of your most recent academic work, grade point average, selection of courses in both high school and college, personal essay, letters of recommendation and extracurricular interests.
We recommend that transfer students meet with a Susquehanna admissions counselor for an interview. We're interested in talking with you to learn more about your college interests and goals. We'll also be able to discuss any questions you have about Susquehanna.
To be considered for transfer admission, please submit the following:
- An application through the online Common Application
- Your high school transcript listing senior courses
- Official transcripts of all previous college work
- The College Official's Form, completed by the dean of students at the previous college or university if you are currently enrolled in a degree program
- High school transcripts (secondary school report form and teacher evaluation form are not required for transfer admission applicants)
- Results of the SAT-1 or the American College Test (ACT)
Note that some programs have additional admission requirements.
Susquehanna has a formal dual admission agreement with Harrisburg Area Community College. We also welcome transfer students who have earned associate degrees from any accredited community or junior college and who have taken a course of study in the liberal arts that is compatible with Susquehanna's curriculum. The Office of the Registrar and the appropriate academic department determine the amount of credit granted. In most cases, students with associate degrees are able to complete a bachelor's degree program at Susquehanna in two years. The Academic Regulations section of the University Catalog provides more information about the residence requirement.
Susquehanna releases decisions after all credentials are on file. The candidate's reply date for successful applicants is stated in the letter of admission.
Transfer students become eligible for financial assistance immediately. Further information is available in the Costs and Financial Aid section of the University Catalog or by contacting the Office of Financial Aid by email or by phone at 570-372-4450.
