Apply to Fisher: Transfer Students

Applications are accepted for fall, spring, and summer semesters. St. John Fisher College operates on a rolling admission plan. Applications are reviewed as they are received.

Transfer Application Process

Note: You must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.00 (4.00 scale) to be considered for admission.

General Transfer Application Requirements

A transfer application is complete once we have received:

  • Completed online application (using one of the following):
  • Official transcripts from all previously attended institutions*
  • Official high school transcripts (if you have completed less than 24 credit hours at the college level)
  • SAT/ACT scores (if you have completed less than one semester of college-level coursework)
    Note: Fisher is test-optional for fall 2021 and fall 2022.

*Note: When requesting transcripts from your previous schools, always follow the electronic PDF delivery method directly to St. John Fisher College. We are in-network participants in most electronic transcript delivery exchange portals and this allows us to receive transcripts automatically without the need to submit them through a third party (as in the use of an email) or through the mail itself. This will save you money and time.

If accepted to St. John Fisher College, you will receive an official transfer credit evaluation. This evaluation will show what credits the College has accepted from previously attended institutions and how these credits will fit into your chosen program of study.

International Student Application Requirements
