Transfer Students

Each year a number of students are admitted as transfers 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 entering Bryn Mawr as first-year students. Students who fail 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.

The deadline for fall entrance is March 1. Transfer applicants are required to submit The Common Application and all supporting documents.

Transfer and McBride applicants who are US citizens or US permanent residents are not required to submit standardized test scores. However, non-US citizens and non-US permanent residents are required to submit standardized test scores (SAT I or ACT) in addition to either the TOEFL* or IELTS** if their primary language is not English and/or their language of instruction over the past four years has not been English.

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