Transfer Admission Process

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!

How to Apply

1Review Admission Requirements

Admission requirements for transfer students vary by individual academic program.  For specific admission requirements, please visit the academic program page for your intended major or contact the Office of Admissions. At minimum, official transcripts are required from all schools attended after high school.  If you have fewer than 24 transferable credits, we will need a copy of your high school transcript. 

2Submit an Application

Once you’ve completed the application, you’ll need to send official transcripts from each school you’ve previously attended. Within 48 hours of receiving your transcripts, we will contact you to confirm whether additional documentation is needed for your program of study. If no other documents are necessary, you will receive an admission decision within 48 hours and you’ll be on your way to the next step in your journey! Apply Now >

There are many available resources to assist you when becoming a Detroit Mercy student. Our transfer guides are useful to assess where you stand with credit equivalencies. You should also review your scholarships and financial aid eligibility, as well as schedule a campus visit that is tailored to transfer students.
