Transfer Admissions

Searching for a dynamic university filled with opportunities? Your search is over! At West Chester University, you will become a member of a diverse community, engage in small classes led by faculty members, immerse yourself in hands-on research and internship opportunities, build lifelong friendships, and achieve greatness inside and outside the classroom.

Transfer admittance is open to any student who has attended a post-secondary institution after high school or enrolled with WCU on a non-degree basis. If you attended WCU as a degree student for at least one semester but did not register for classes for three or more consecutive semesters, apply as a readmit applicant.

Transfer Tuesdays

WCU is offering Virtual Transfer Tuesday sessions this spring! You'll be able to connect with one of our transfer counselors, potentially receive an instant decision for the upcoming semester, and speak with representatives from Financial Aid and the Registrar's Office. Register today!

Admissions Process

The Office of Admissions at West Chester University completes a preliminary evaluation of all transfer applications on a rolling basis once all information has been received and processed. The committee prioritizes applicants with the strongest academic credentials and notifies them of a decision upon completion. Other candidates may be required to submit additional information or will be referred to the committee for a second review.

It is recommended that transfer applicants for the fall semester should complete the application process early in the preceding spring semester and that spring semester applications should be completed early in the preceding fall semester; however, certain academic programs can close earlier. If enrollment limits are met before this time, admissions will be closed.
