Transfer Students

As a student’s goals and program of study change, transferring might be a good option.

For this reason, we welcome the application of transfer students who have begun their undergraduate work at another institution. Any questions about transfer applications can be directed to transfer coordinator Marcus Johnson.

As you consider applying to Kalamazoo College as a transfer student, please consider the following:

You can consult our Course Equivalency Guide if you are transferring from:

  • Kalamazoo Valley Community College
  • Michigan State University
  • University of Michigan – Ann Arbor
  • Washtenaw Community College
  • Transfers are accepted primarily for entry in the fall term
  • The deadline to apply as a transfer student is May 1*
  • In most cases, successful transfer applicants present grades of a B average or better in their current courses
  • The CommonApp is available online
  • Transcripts will be evaluated for transfer of credit after a student has been admitted to the College
  • Merit-based scholarships are available for transfer students at a range of $18,000-$28,000 to be awarded for the duration of their studies as determined by the Registrar
  • Mid-year transfers: While most of our transfer students find fall the optimal time to transfer into the College, we do offer entry to our winter term (January) for a small number of transfer students. If you are interested in mid-year entry, you must have a 3.3 or higher cumulative college grade point average and apply by November 15.
