We welcome applications from transfer students for both the fall and spring semesters. We know the process of applying as a transfer can be an overwhelming one. For that reason we encourage you to contact the Office of Admission should you have any questions.
Transfer students need to submit the following materials in order to have your application reviewed for admission.
In addition to completing the Common Application and the essay, you will be asked to answer a few Saint Anselm College member questions.
$50 Application Fee
Official College Transcript(s)
College transcripts need to be submitted from every school you have attended.
Official Final High School Transcript
Your high school transcript needs to be submitted directly from your high school. The transcript should include final grades from 9, 10, 11 and 12. It should also include your date of graduation.
Letter of Recommendation From an Academic Professor
Recommendation letters or a completed Academic Evaluation for Transfer Students (Common Application document) from your professors will help us to learn more about you. One recommendation letter is required and it is strongly suggested that you submit a letter from one of your most recent college courses.
Transfer College Report
The transfer college report (Common Application document) is required so that we can learn more about where you are coming from. To be considered official, the report must be completed by a college official. We require that a report is submited from your current or most recent institution.
Transfer Midterm Report
The mid-term report (Common Application document) allows us to evalaute your most recent college courses. The form should be completed by your college instructors for the courses in which you are currently enrolled. We are looking for your current grade in the course, not your mid-term exam grade.
In order to award college credit, you will need to submit course descriptions for all of your college courses that you have previously completed or are currently taking. Course descriptions can be found in college catalogues from all your previous institutions. Please feel free to email descriptions to the Office of Admission.
Official Results of the SAT I or ACT (Optional for all programs except for nursing), SAT code is 3748 - ACT code is 2522
ZeeMee Profile (Optional)
At Saint Anselm College, we look to gain a holistic understanding of each student during the application review process. In an effort to get to know our applicants even better, we have partnered with ZeeMee, a free service that helps students bring their applications to life. Use images, videos, and documents to share your story. Simply copy and paste the link into the Common Application. To begin your ZeeMee profile, you will need to create an account at zeemee.com.
Portfolio (Optional for Fine Arts Program)
If you are interested in applying for our fine arts program, you have the option to submit a portfolio of your work to be evaluated with your application. Saint Anselm College is partnering with SlideRoom which is integrated with the Common Application. Please contact the Office of Admission to learn more about how to submit your portfolio.
Credit Evaluation Process
Preliminary credit evaliations are completed for all transfer students admitted to Saint Anselm College. You will receive a copy of your credit evaluation with your offer of admission or shortly thereafter. An official credit evaluation is completed once you enroll at the college. In order for the Registrar's Office to complete your official credit evaluation, all final transcripts and course descriptions must be submitted.
