Paul Smith's College welcomes transfer students and recognizes their value as members of the campus community. Transfer credits are accepted from all accredited institutions and will be reviewed on an individual basis to maximize each student's transfer opportunity.
Credits may be transferred if the grade is a C- or higher and must apply toward the particular track of study the student has chosen to pursue. Students who conceal previous attendance at another college or university is cause for cancellation of admission and registration to the college.
Application Process for Transfer Students
Transfer students are admitted for either the fall or the spring semester. The standard admission procedures apply to transfer applicants. Candidates for transfer from accredited institutions may be admitted with advanced standing upon presentation of certified credentials.
Applicants should submit the following for full consideration for admission:
1. Complete application for admissions.
2. $30 application fee (non-refundable processing fee).
3. Please submit official college transcripts from the registrar's office of EACH college you have attended. Note: High School Transcripts* are also required for college students who have attempted less than 12 semester hours of college credit.
*Students who have completed high school requirements with an equivalency diploma should submit an official copy of the General Equivalency Diploma (GED) and the individual scores received on the tests. An official secondary school transcript must be submitted to the Office of Admission if any high school courses have been completed. Proof of high school graduation or its equivalent is required prior to the start of classes. An Individualized Education Plan (IEP) diploma does not meet the requirement for proof of high school graduation.
