Application for Transfer Admission

Students who seek to transfer to the College after attending another college or university that is accredited by a Department of Education accredited organization must submit the Newberry College application or the Common Application and satisfy all requirements for transfer admission as described in the following paragraphs.

A minimum of a cumulative “C” average on all college-level study is expected for successful transfer. This is a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or better on a 4.0 scale. Grades and grade points for study previously attempted at Newberry are not included in a transfer application review for readmission. A transfer applicant must be a student in good academic standing. Neither probation nor suspension can be in effect at the previous college or university attended or currently attending.

Transcripts of all previously attempted or current college-level studies must be submitted before application review. 

It is the responsibility of the transfer applicant to arrange for the official transcript(s) to be mailed to the College’s Office of Enrollment Management. Approved courses and credit hours transfer to Newberry; grades and grade points (quality points) do not transfer. Typically, college-level credit will transfer from post-secondary institutions that are accredited or in candidacy for accreditation. The College Registrar may review collegiate course work on a case-by-case basis for potential transfer credit.

Applicants who have completed fewer than twenty-four semester hours or thirty-six quarter hours of college-level study must also submit a secondary school transcript, an ACT or SAT score report, and must satisfy all requirements for freshman admission.
