Transfer Students


We welcome students to discover (or, perhaps, rediscover) Allegheny after beginning their undergraduate education elsewhere.

The Allegheny admissions staff is pleased to offer a limited number of spots to transfer students for both fall and spring semesters, understanding that a student may not have found an ideal fit at his/her current school.

  • The maximum number of credits accepted in transfer is 64.
  • Only credits with a grade of C or better are transferable in acceptable courses.
