Transferring to Suffolk

Start your next chapter at Suffolk University

You know what you want to get out of your higher education. Suffolk University is the place for you.

Maybe you’re graduating from community college. Or looking to switch four-year schools. Or seeking a fresh start. Maybe you’re hoping to be closer to home or farther away. Maybe you want an urban campus with opportunities right outside your door.

Our inclusive community celebrates and elevates students from all walks of life—including the many transfers who join us each year.

You need a university that understands you—one where you can learn from faculty mentors in small classes and gain essential, in-demand skills. Boston’s top employers partner with us for stand-out class projects and internships. At Suffolk, you’ll get more than a degree; you’ll get ahead in the job market.

But learning doesn’t just happen in class or on the job. It comes alive every minute you spend in our incredible city. A Suffolk education is equal parts finding your way around Boston—with all its music and museums, entertainment, sports, and more—and finding who you’re meant to be.

You’ll gain fresh perspectives from our curriculum’s global focus as well as your international classmates. And you can study abroad on almost every continent—including at our very own campus in Madrid, Spain. By the time you graduate, you’ll be more than ready to succeed anywhere on the map.

We can’t wait to welcome you.
