We invite transfer students from community colleges and four-year institutions to apply for admission for the fall or spring semester. Students applying for the fall semester should have all application materials postmarked or submitted electronically no later than April 1st, while students applying for the spring semester must have all materials postmarked by December 1st. Applications will be considered on a space-available basis if submitted after our deadlines. Please contact the Office of Admissions at 617-735-9715 or via email with questions.
Admitted students will receive a transfer credit evaluation from the Office of Academic Advising, detailing which completed college courses will receive credit at Emmanuel College. Please allow two to three weeks following your acceptance for the transfer credit evaluation process to be completed.
The requirements for domestic transfer applicants include:
• Application Form
• Official Final High School Transcript
• Official College Transcripts
• Course Descriptions
• Essay or Graded Writing Sample
• Two Letters of Recommendation
• Standardized Test Scores
• Interview (recommended)
You may submit the Common Application online or by mail. If you would like an application mailed to you, please call or email the Admissions Office. There is a $60 application fee to submit a paper application; the fee is waived if you apply online.
Official Final High School Transcript
Your high school guidance/college counselor may submit your final high school transcript by mail or through the Common Application website.
To allow for appropriate credit evaluation, you must submit catalog descriptions for each of your completed and in-progress courses. Catalog descriptions should be taken from your institution's course catalog and should be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to the Office of Admissions. You may find a sample of catalog descriptions here.
Standardized Test Scores
If you have taken the SAT or ACT, results should be submitted to the Office of Admissions. Scores may be reported directly from the testing agency or indicated on your official high school transcript. The Emmanuel College CEEB code is 3368.
While not required, an interview with an Admissions Counselor is recommended to help the Admissions Committee learn more about your background and interest in attending Emmanuel. Interviews are available on campus as well as by phone.
