Transfer Admission

Application Process

Students who have attempted any college-level course after graduating from high school are considered transfer applicants. (Note: College Credit Plus and high school dual enrollment students are not considered transfer applicants and should complete the undergraduate application.)

To begin the transfer application process, simply:

  1. Apply to UD. You may submit UD's application or the Common Application.
  2. Request and submit official transcripts from all colleges you've attended — even if it wasn't recently. Transcripts should be mailed or sent electronically from the institution to the Office of Recruitment and Admission. Home institutions should direct electronic documents to or mail them to the below address. Hand-carried transcripts, official copies marked "Issued to Student," and unofficial copies are not acceptable.
  3. Request and submit your official high school transcript.
  4. Request and submit additional documents as required.*
    1. Personal statement
    2. Joint Services Transcript (JST) if you have served or are serving in the U.S. armed forces
    3. Official AP, CLEP, and IB score reports if you have taken any of the exams

*For additional application materials for International transfer students, check out the International Undergraduate Admission website.

Transfer student application materials should be mailed to:

Office of Recruitment and Admission

Dayton, OH 45469-2713
