Transfer students are a welcome addition to the St. Olaf community. They bring diversity and fresh perspectives to the St. Olaf academic experience. Transfer students are admitted on the same selective basis as regular first-year students, are eligible for financial aid, may compete for a limited number of merit scholarships, and are guaranteed housing for the duration of their enrollment at St. Olaf College. Transfer applicants are encouraged to visit the campus for a tour, class visit, and meeting with the transfer counselor. Please schedule your visit at least a week in advance so we can arrange a class visit. When you come to campus, please bring a transcript from your current college or university for a preliminary evaluation.
Note: International Transfer students need to apply as International Students and should follow the application process for international students.
