Transfer Students

At Gettysburg College, we value the diversity of experiences and breadth of knowledge that transfer students bring to our community.

Gettysburg College welcomes students who have previously attended another college or university to apply as a transfer applicant. Highly motivated and academically strong, our transfer students take advantage of the many high-impact learning opportunities that the College provides–including student-driven research, internships and externships, and study abroad programs. If this sounds like you, we invite you to apply.
