Transfer Admission

transfer Admission Process

How do I apply?

  1. Submit an application through the Common Application or the Berry Application
  2. Submit the following:
    • Official high school transcript.
    • An official transcript from each college/university previously attended. 
    • Transfer Recommendation Form from each institution previously attended.
    • Personal essay (instructions included on the application).
      • (Optional) "Why Berry" essay.
      *These documents will be used to determine if an applicant meets the admissions qualifications for transfers which are 1)  be eligible to return to the college or university last attended and 2) have a grade point average that the Admissions Committee sees as clear evidence of potential academic success at Berry College. 

Transfer students should apply for admission through the Regular Decision (RD) timeline. This is a non-binding admissions option. Transfer students interested in coming to Berry for the spring semester should complete their application by December 1. Transfer students interested in attending Berry this fall should apply by May 15th for priority consideration.
