Transfer Students

Lafayette welcomes applications for the fall and spring semesters from students wishing to transfer from other institutions. All applicants must have a high school diploma (or GED) and be in good standing at their current institution. The College does not specify a minimum grade point average for consideration as a transfer student, but the majority of those offered admission present strong records of achievement. To be considered a transfer student you need a minimum of three transferable courses.

Students who transfer from a regionally accredited institution may be granted credit toward a Lafayette degree for courses which are consistent with the goals of the candidate's academic program at Lafayette and in which the candidate has achieved a grade of C or higher (2.0 on a 4.0 scale). Transfer students must spend a minimum of two academic years in residence to be eligible for graduation. At least half the courses applied toward a major must be taken at Lafayette.
