A transfer applicant is a high school graduate or GED recipient who has attempted credits from an accredited college or university (including UMass Dartmouth as a special student or in the Division of Professional and Continuing Education).
The requirements for transfer admission:
- Official transcripts of all previous college or university courses attempted
- In addition to the transcripts, a list of all the courses you are currently taking, by course number, title, and credits
- Official high school transcript, if you apply with fewer than 24 credits completed
- SATI/ACT scores, if you apply with fewer than 24 credits completed and have been out of high school less than 3 years
- Photocopies of catalog pages with course descriptions for the work you have completed, to help us evaluate your college/university transcripts properly. Mark the courses you have taken and the college name on each page. Failure to submit this information may result in our not being able to award credit; Massachusetts public institutions are exempt.
- Completed application and application fee ($40 in-state, $60 out-of-state)
- TOEFL scores for international students
- Visual Arts applicants (excluding Art History): submission of a portfolio
- Music applicants: an audition
Note: Some programs (such as Biology, Medical Laboratory Science and Psychology) are competitive, so applications are encouraged by February 1.
