Mount Holyoke College welcomes transfer applicants who add to the rich mix of intellectual and campus life at the College. Each year, approximately 50 new transfers join the Mount Holyoke community. They come to us from two-year and community colleges, from four-year private and public colleges and universities, and from domestic and international institutions.
Eligible candidates for transfer admission must have earned 16 credits at another institution, present strong academic records, and share the qualities common to Mount Holyoke students: intellectual curiosity, strong motivation, and an engaged learning style. Please note, students over the age of 25, or under 25 but veterans or have a dependent other than a spouse must apply as Frances Perkins Scholars.
