Elizabethtown College welcomes transfer students from at all academic career levels into a variety of major programs. An early inquiry about the transfer process can help you to maximize your educational experience. Our Admissions Office is dedicated to Transfer Students and we encourage you to speak with our Transfer Student Admissions Coordinator, Gretchen Camp | firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's Get Started
Students approved through Admissions with an earned associate’s degree, consisting of at least 40 corresponding general education credits from a regionally accredited college or university, will be recognized as meeting all of the requirements of the Elizabethtown College Core Curriculum with full junior standing . The foregoing provision does not supersede curricular prerequisites or departmental program requirements established in the College catalog. Nor does it exclude the student from completing the signature learning requirement, or residency requirements, for completion of a bachelor’s degree.
Students transition seamlessly from earning their associates degree into a bachelors degree program at Elizabethtown College.
