You are a transfer applicant if you have been enrolled in college or university courses after completing your secondary education. In reviewing transfer applications, we consider your academic profile as well as your personal statement and extracurricular involvement. Admitted transfer students are automatically considered for the Honors Program and merit scholarships.
Transfer applicants can apply to Suffolk via the Common Application, apply through Suffolk's portal, or download the Common Application [PDF]. You'll also need to have your:
- Official college/university transcript(s) from all schools attended
- Application fee (waived when you visit in person or virtually).
- Essay/Personal statement
To be considered official, these documents must be sent directly from the institution. We will accept these if they are delivered in any of the following ways:
- Secured electronic delivery via Clearinghouse, EScript, or Parchment directly from the institution’s Record’s Office or Registrar sent to [email protected]
- School-sealed envelope sent via postal mail from the institution to:
c/o Undergraduate Admission
8 Ashburton Place
Boston, MA 02108
- If delivered in person to the Undergraduate Admission Office (73 Tremont Street, Boston, MA) must be in an unopened, school-sealed envelope.
For those with less than 12 earned transferrable credits, a final high school transcript and standardized test scores are also required. For more information, view All Deadlines & Requirements.
