Transfer Admission

Deciding to transfer to the University of Dayton from another college can be a difficult choice. However, the actual process can be quite simple — and we're here to help.

To apply, you can submit our Application for Undergraduate Admission and Scholarship or the Common Application. There is no application fee.

Application Requirements

In addition to the online application, all transfer students should submit:

  • Application (including the essay). You may submit our Application for Undergraduate Admission and Scholarship or the Common Application.
  • Official transcripts from all high schools and colleges you've attended — even if it wasn't recently. Transcripts should be mailed directly from the institution to the Office of Admission and Financial AId; hand-carried transcripts, official copies marked Issued to Student and unofficial copies are not acceptable.
  • Results from the ACT or SAT test, if you're not yet 21 years of age. 
  • International transfer applicants must submit course descriptions for all previously completed college courses to receive full consideration for transfer credits from foreign universities.

All application materials should be directed to:

Office of Admission and Financial Aid
University of Dayton
300 College Park
Dayton, OH 45469-1310

Once all required information is received, your application will be reviewed and you will be notified of our decision within three to four weeks.
