Transfer students should have all application materials postmarked or submitted electronically, as soon as possible as we are rolling admissions.
We require that you forward your official college transcripts from every college attended after your high school graduation, even if you only took one course at each institution. Accepted students will receive a transfer credit evaluation detailing which completed college courses will receive credit at Emmanuel College. Please allow two to three weeks following your acceptance for the transfer credit evaluation process to be completed.
The requirements for domestic transfer applicants include:
You may submit the Common Application online or by mail. If you would like an application mailed to you, please contact the Office of Admissions. There is a $60 application fee to submit a paper application; the fee is waived if you apply online.
Final High School Transcript
Emmanuel College requires an official transcript with your final senior grades included for all transfer applicants. To be considered “official” for admissions consideration, your high school guidance/college counselor must send this item directly to the Office of Admissions. Your former counselor may submit your final high school transcript by mail, emailing email@example.com, or uploading through the Common Application website or Scoir.
Official College Transcripts
Emmanuel College requires an official college transcript for all college level credits earned prior to admissions consideration. Official transcripts should be requested to be sent from your previous institution's college Registrar directly to the Office of Admissions. Your previous institution can send this item by mail, email to firstname.lastname@example.org or uploading through Parchment.
If you are currently enrolled in college classes for the current semester in which you will be applying to Emmanuel, please plan to share those mid-term grades as well.
To allow for appropriate credit evaluation, Emmanuel College’s Registrar asks that candidates for admission submit catalog descriptions for each of your completed and in-progress courses.
You can check out our Transfer Credit Eligibility and Course Equivalency Search tool to see courses that have previously been awarded credit and transferred to Emmanuel College. This tool is not an exhaustive list of possible credit work that could transfer.
To support your transfer credit evaluation process, please send all course descriptions to email@example.com as an email attachment in a Microsoft Word or PDF document.
To better understand your reason for transferring and your goals for continuing your college education, we require an essay be submitted as part of your application.
This item should be about a page in length. Completed essays can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
One Letter of Recommendations
To better understand your academic success and transition to a college environment, we require one recommendation be submitted in support of your application. Ideally, your recommendation should be either from a recent college professor, advisor, or an academic teacher of your choosing. Your recommender can send this item directly to email@example.com.
This item is required to be considered for transfer admission to Emmanuel College. The document below should be sent from you as the applicant to your previous institution’s Dean of Students or other appropriate official at the college/university you are currently attending. That person should then email the document directly to firstname.lastname@example.org in support of your application.
Please note, this item is not an academic reference.

While not required, an interview with an Admissions Counselor is a great opportunity to help the Admissions Committee learn more about your background and interest in attending Emmanuel. Interviews are available on campus, on the phone, or virtually. To set up an interview, you can select a day/time from our online visit calendar.
If you cannot find a day or time that works for you, or if you would like to simply set up an informational meeting with an admissions counselor, rather than a formal interview, please email email@example.com.
