Transfer to Saint Anselm College
Applying to Saint Anselm College
Consideration for Spring 2020 enrollment has passed. The priority application deadline for Fall 2020 is April 1.
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 more information about transfer admission, please contact Tony Trodella, Associate Director of Admission & Coordinator of Transfer Admission.
Would you like the opportunity to discuss the transfer process with our Coordinator of Transfer Admission? The Transfer Talks program is an opportunity for you to discuss the transfer process at Saint Anselm College and have your questions answered in a one-on-one meeting with Tony Trodella, Coordinator of Transfer Admission. These 30-minute sessions can be held in person on our beautiful campus or over the phone if your schedule doesn’t allow you to come to campus at this time.
Transfer Application Materials
In order to be reviewed for transfer admission, applicants will need to submit the following materials.
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 or Fee Waiver
A $50 fee is required with each application. Saint Anselm College will waive the $50 application fee for the following students:
- Visitors to Campus: Register today for an official visit before you submit your application and your fee will be waived. Students will receive details regarding the waiver within 24 hours of the conclusion of their visit.
- First Generation Domestic and International Students: For this purpose, a first-generation college student is defined as a student whose parent(s) or legal guardian(s) have not completed a bachelor’s degree. All other applicants can contact their school counselor to see if they are eligible for an application fee waiver.
Official College and High School Transcripts
Official College Transcript(s)
College transcripts need to be submitted from every college/university 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. Please note the high school transcript requirement is waived if you have earned an associate's degree or higher prior to enrolling at Saint Anselm College.
Transfer College Report
The transfer college report 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 submitted from your current or most recent institution.
Transfer Mid-Term Report
The mid-term report (Common Application document) allows us to evaluate 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.
OPTIONAL: Official SAT I or ACT Results
We are test-optional.
SAT code: 3748
ACT code: 2522
OPTIONAL: ZeeMee Profile
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 your ZeeMee link into the Common Application. To begin your profile, create an account at zeemee.com.
OPTIONAL: Fine Arts Portfolio
If you are interested in applying for our fine arts program or would like to share your visual or performance art talent, you have the option to submit a portfolio of your work to be evaluated with your application. Saint Anselm College partners with SlideRoom, which integrates with the Common Application. To create a portfolio, you can use the link embedded in the Common Application or you can create an account through Slideroom.
Credit Evaluation Process
Transfer credit is awarded for a course at a previous college/university if the student has earned a grade of C or higher, and there is an equivalent course offered here at Saint Anselm College. Up to 64 credits can be accepted in the transfer process. A student must complete a majority of the courses required for their major while at Saint Anselm College.
Preliminary credit evaluations 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 must be submitted.
If you have any questions about credit evaluations, please contact the Office of the Registrar.
