A Transfer-Friendly College

If you have completed the equivalent of a semester (12 credit hours) of coursework at an accredited college or university, you can apply to Wells College as a transfer student.  Making the transition from another institution is easy as Wells provides credit evaluations, academic advising, and financial aid counseling during the admissions process.  If you have intellectual curiosity and motivation, and seek an educational experience that is a journey of self-discovery, we encourage you to apply to Wells.

How many credits do I need to complete at Wells?

You must complete at least 60 credit hours at Wells to fulfill our residency requirement.

When will I receive a credit evaluation?

We send out credit evaluations along with acceptance letters. 

Are there scholarships available for transfer students?

Wells offers scholarships to transfer students between $10,000 and $15,000 a year.  Scholarship awards are made at the time of admissions with notification included in the acceptance letter.  Students who are members of PTK automatically receive a $15,000 scholarship at the time of acceptance.

What are the application deadlines?

Wells has rolling admissions.  As soon as your application is complete, the committee will review it and mail you a decision typically within one week.
