Transfer Students

Lafayette welcomes applications from students who wish to transfer from accredited junior colleges, community colleges, or four-year institutions. While a minimum GPA is not specified, the majority of those offered admission present very strong records of achievement.

To be considered a transfer applicant, a student must have a minimum of three transferable courses. Transfer students are required to spend at least two academic years at Lafayette in order to be eligible for graduation. At least half the courses applied toward the major must be taken at Lafayette. Campus housing is normally available for incoming transfer students.

Application deadlines for transfer students are May 1 for fall entry, Nov. 1 for spring. Campus visits are encouraged, and weekday interviews are available.

To request more information, please complete the Information Request Form. To apply, complete online the Common Application for transfer students.
