Dickinson welcomes qualified applicants with previous academic work at other accredited college-level institutions. An applicant normally will be considered for transfer admission if the person has been enrolled elsewhere as a degree candidate for the equivalent of at least two semesters prior to the date of desired enrollment at Dickinson. As a matter of definition, a candidate will be considered for transfer admission if he or she enrolled at another institution as a full-time, degree-seeking student.
The primary factors in the admission of transfers, in addition to those required of first-year applicants, are the college transcript, the reason for transfer, evidence of good academic and non-academic standing (as indicated by the Transfer College Report or similar official statement) and one recommendation from a professor.
Final determination of credit and the satisfaction of distribution requirements will be made by Dickinson's registrar. Answers to frequently asked questions about transfer-credit policies and degree requirements can be found on our registrar's Web page.
Dickinson College sponsors a competitive scholarship, valued at $15,000 per year for community-college graduates in good standing in Phi Theta Kappa.
