Transfer Application & Deadlines

If you’ve started college somewhere else and want to consider a change, take a look at what the nation’s top undergraduate engineering college has to offer.

Want to Make a Change?

Transfer admission is for those students who have completed college or university classes since graduating from high school. If you are currently enrolled as a first-year student at another institution, you will need to begin the application process after your first semester grades have posted. A completed application for admission should include:

  • A completed transfer application form (see below)
  • College transcript(s). We require courses in biology, chemistry, physics, and calculus.
  • If students have fewer than 24 transferable hours at the time they are applying, they should also send a copy of their high school transcripts.

Credit transfers
Rose-Hulman accepts coursework from other institutions. As a general rule, for a course to transfer it must be a 100-level course or above and the grade received for the course must be a C or above. Once a student has been admitted as a transfer student, he/she will have their coursework evaluated to determine what credit may transfer. In the end, however, the faculty make the final decision on transfer credit, not the Office of Admissions.
