Transfer Students

D'Youville Welcomes Transfer Students

Each year, hundreds of students attending other post-secondary institutions decide to transfer to D'Youville College. We accept transfer students in both the fall and spring semester.

A transfer student is an individual who, after completing high school, home school or GED, has earned at least 12 credits at a college or university - but has not yet earned a bachelor's degree. If you have earned fewer than 12 credit hours, you should apply to D'Youville as a First Time Freshman student.
