Transfer Admission Process

Whether you’re transferring from a community college or 4-year institution, returning to school after some time away or coming back from a military leave, Detroit Mercy welcomes you.  With a 10:1 faculty to student ratio, you’re guaranteed that one-on-one attention that hallmarks the Detroit Mercy experience.  Reach out to us today, our Transfer Admissions Counselors are here to guide you through every step of the admission process.

Before You Apply

1. Transfer Admission Process

How it works:
Transfer students are considered for rolling admission—there’s no deadline to apply and you can be considered for Fall, Winter, or Summer admission for most of Detroit Mercy’s undergraduate programs.  We do recommend applying at least one month prior to your desired start date for scholarship opportunities.  The application fee is waived for all transfer students!

What it takes:
General admission requirements for transfer students include a 2.0 cumulative GPA in previous college work and at least 24 transferable credits.  Individual academic programs may also require successful completion of specific courses and higher GPA guidelines. 

If you have fewer than 24 transferable credits, we’ll consider your high school achievement as well.

Where it leads:
Once you’ve filled out the application, you’ll need to send in official transcripts from each school you’ve previously attended.  Within in 48 hours of receiving your transcripts, we will contact you with an admission decision and you’ll be on your way to the next step in your journey.
