2008-2009 Catalog

Transfer Students

Bryn Mawr College accepts the Common Application for Transfer Students with a required institutional supplement. Detailed instructions, as well as the Bryn Mawr Supplement for Transfer Students may be downloaded from the Bryn Mawr website.  

Each year a number of students are admitted on transfer to the sophomore and junior classes. Successful transfer candidates have done excellent work at other colleges and universities and present strong high-school records that compare favorably with those of women entering Bryn Mawr as first-year students. Students who have failed to meet the prescribed standards of academic work or who have been put on probation, suspended or excluded from other colleges and universities will not be admitted under any circumstances.

Transfer candidates should file applications as early as possible but no later than March 15 for entrance in September, or no later than November 1 for the second semester of the year of entrance. Application forms and instructions may be requested from the transfer coordinator.

Transfer candidates are asked to submit official test reports from the College Board of the Scholastic Aptitude and Achievement Tests taken in high school. Those who have not previously taken these tests are required to take only the Scholastic Aptitude Test. Test registration information may be obtained by writing to the College Board, P.O. Box 592, Princeton, New Jersey 08542-0592 or on the College Board Web site at www.collegeboard.com.

To qualify for the A.B. degree, students ordinarily should have completed a minimum of two years of full-time study at Bryn Mawr.
