xferapplicants_1Each semester we reserve a handful of spaces to be filled by incoming transfer students. Because there are only a few spaces, our transfer admissions process is highly competitive. As you’re completing your application, be sure to tell us what makes you, you. We want to know the events, decisions, and crossroads that led you to where you are today. And, of course, make sure your grades are strong—these are a very important part of your application.



Applicants for spring-semester transfer should have completed at least one full semester in residence at an accredited college or university prior to matriculating at Colby. Fall-semester transfer students should have completed at least two semesters in residence prior to matriculation.
