‌We're pleased to provide prospective transfer students with the information they need to assist in the decision to transfer to Connecticut College. Please place yourself on our transfer mailing list.

What are the requirements to apply as a transfer?

Connecticut College utilizes the Common Application for all application materials and encourages prospective students to create a Common App online account well in advance of the application deadline. This will allow time for completion of the application itself as well as all the other required materials listed below.

To be considered for transfer admission, you must complete at least one semester at an accredited college or university, and it is recommended that you maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA.  Financial aid is available for transfer applicants, but very limited aid is available for foreign citizens.

Connecticut College values the perspectives and contributions of those who have served our country in the military. We welcome applications from veterans who may wish to finish a bachelor of arts degree through our Return to College program.
