A transfer applicant must:
- complete an application for admission consideration
- be eligible to return to the college or university last attended
- submit a transcript from each institution previously attended
- submit an official high school transcript
- have a completed Berry College Transfer Recommendation Form on file for each institution previously attended
As a college dedicated to strong academics and the value of meaningful
work done well, we encourage applicants to submit a resume of work, volunteer,
service and/or academic activities along with other information that helps defines
A transfer applicant is considered for admission after all required credentials are received by the college admissions office. Any prior college work not submitted to college officials at the time of application for admission will not be accepted for undergraduate credit in the future. Failure to report such work may also be grounds for dismissal.
The academic record is the main determinant for transfer admission to Berry. Our Admission Committee primarily considers three criteria when reviewing application files: curriculum choice, cumulative and institutional GPA, and academic/disciplinary record.
Berry utilizes a rolling admission process. Based on space availability, applications are considered until 30 days before the start of each semester.
