Each year, the College receives a large number of applications from prospective transfer students for a limited number of places available in the class. For this reason, admission as a transfer student is very selective. Students are encouraged to contact admissions@brynmawr.edu if they have any questions about the application process.

  • Common Application
    • Bryn Mawr Writing Supplement
  • Official high school transcript(s) or original copy of GED

* Academic evaluations should be from college-level instructors. Applicants who have not attended college in the past 3 years can submit letters from non-academic recommenders (i.e. employers, colleagues, mentors, etc.) These references should speak to the skills necessary for academic success, such as writing, research, critical thinking, time management, ability to engage with new challenges, etc.

** We can waive this requirement if you attended a school in which the only language of instruction was English. The minimum score required for admission consideration is 100 on the TOEFL or 7 on the IELTS
