Transfer Students

Mary Baldwin will consider students for admission to the freshman, sophomore, or junior class by way of transfer from colleges and universities accredited by regional accrediting agencies or the American Association for Liberal Education. A transfer application must include transcripts of all college work taken and a transcript from the secondary school. 

Applications for the fall semester should be submitted to the Office of Admissions during the prior winter or spring, and notification will be made when the file of credentials is complete. For entrance in the spring semester, applications should be received before December 1. An evaluation of credits will be made after the final transcript arrives from the institution from which the student is transferring. A non-refundable advance deposit of $300 must be received by December 30 for students entering in January. 

In evaluating transfer applications, emphasis is placed on the previous college record. As a general guideline, transfer students should have an average of 2.0 or better in their college work in order to be approved for transfer to Mary Baldwin. Only courses with grades of “C-” or higher will be accepted for transfer credit, and each course will be considered separately. 

Transfer students coming into MBU must earn a minimum of 36 semester hours at Mary Baldwin. 

Transfer students should send their official college transcript(s), official final high school transcript, and application to Mary Baldwin University for full consideration. Official college transcripts must be mailed or electronically sent directly from the Office of the Registrar from all previously attended institutions; and prospective applicants should request the transcripts be sent to Mary Baldwin as soon as possible. We will notify students of the status of their admission application within two weeks. Mary Baldwin will consider transfer students with some college and no degree and those with an associate of arts, associate of science, associate of arts and sciences, associate of applied science in nursing, or associate of applied science in human services.
