Transfer Students

We want to the process of transferring to Taylor as smooth as possible. It can be a fairly quick process as long as we get all your information in a timely manner. 

It's easy to jump into Taylor's community as a transfer student. Since our residence halls are not separated by years (no freshman dorm here!), you'll find people right next door who are at a similar same place of life as you. 

Application Process

  • Complete Online Application or Common Application.
  • Request final high school transcript to be sent to Taylor University.
  • Request your official college transcript(s) be sent to Taylor University.
  • Submit your SAT, ACT, and/or CLT scores (optional).

Financial Aid for Transfers

All transfer students are eligible for up to $17,000 in academic scholarships, renewable yearly with a 3.0 Taylor GPA. Various department scholarships and need-based financial aid are also available.

Phi Theta Kappa and American Honors scholars are eligible for a $3,000 per year scholarship.

Transfer Credits

One of the biggest questions you may have is how will my credits transfer? Every transfer student is unique, and so are the classes you've taken. We're happy to walk you through the process of evaluating your credits. The best place to start is by contacting Jared Burgess with your questions. Once you email your college transcript to admissions@taylor.edu, we will forward it on to the Registrar for preliminary review. 

  • A maximum of 64 hours of credits may be transferred from an accredited two-year college. You must complete 50 percent of the minimum degree hours at Taylor University. Coursework must have a grade of C- or better to be accepted.
  • In lieu of an official transcript, you can complete the Pre-Enrollment Transfer Evaluation Form and submit it directly to the Registrar for transfer credit evaluation.
