Lafayette offers many opportunities for transfer students to live, learn and lead both on our campus and in the local and global community.
To be considered as a transfer applicant, you need a minimum of three transferable courses. Transfer students must spend at least two academic years at Lafayette to be eligible for graduation. At least half the courses applied toward the major must be taken at Lafayette.
Lafayette provides a credit evaluation only after extending an offer of admission. Students are required to submit a course description and syllabus for the credits to be evaluated. The Office of the Registrar will make the final determination on what college credits will transfer to the institution. In order to estimate which courses will transfer to Lafayette, use the following guidelines:
In addition to a college credit evaluation, Lafayette will also accept AP & IB credit from admitted transfer students to be used for both academic classroom placement and course credit. AP and IB scores should be submitted to the Office of the Registrar after the student has been accepted to be considered for transfer credit. Please refer to the Office of the Registrar’s page to view our AP and IB exam policy.
