Applying to Fisher

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

A transfer application is complete once we have received:

  • Completed online Fisher application or Transfer Common Application
  • 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: 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.

Transfer Admissions Requirements

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

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.

Application for Readmission

If you've been away from Fisher for two or more semesters, submit the Application for Readmission.

Nursing Application for Junior Clinical Year

If you are ready to apply to the nursing clinical year, please submit the application below. The application deadline for fall admission is March 1; the application deadline for spring admission is July 1. However, you are encouraged to apply early. Completed applications will be reviewed after the deadline if space is available.

Note: You must apply to the College (see above), and be accepted, BEFORE applying to the nursing clinical year.
