We are thrilled to have you, and hope that you are able to take advantage of whatever it is that sparked your transfer to Stonehill - whether an academic program, opportunity for extracurricular involvement, or just an overall "better fit".
About the Transfer Process
There are three general stages each student transitioning to Stonehill from another university will go through:
- Applying to and being accepted at the College: Admissions will work with you to help guide you through the process. They hold various open houses for transfer students you will want to attend. See admissions info for transfer students. Contact people: Sam Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org (if transferring from a 4 year institution); Luis Rosa, email@example.com (if transferring from a 2 year institution)
- Processing your transfer credits (from both your previous institution(s) and high school APs): It is important to have an updated degree audit in order to plan your first semester (and subsequent semesters) at Stonehill. The Registrar's Office will process the transcripts from your previous institutions and send you a final degree articulation once you have sent in your most recent semester's grades. Go to the Registrar's home page. Contact people: Nancy Krushas, firstname.lastname@example.org; Lisa Tressel, email@example.com
- Choosing classes and being oriented to the school: An academic advisor in the Office of Academic Advising & Services will review your degree audit with you and help you select courses for your first semester at Stonehill. The OAS&A also coordinates a Transfer Orientation at the beginning of each semester to help you learn about and connect you to some of the many offices and resources on campus. Contact person: Darcy Lynch, firstname.lastname@example.org
Academic Advising for Transfer Students
Through your transition to Stonehill and the course of your first semester, Darcy Lynch, the Associate Director in the OAS&A will be your advisor. Additionally, all science majors will be assigned a secondary advisor in their particular major who will work with you to reviewing your course of study and help orient you to the department.
Your advisor(s) will work with you to review your current credit status and make a plan to best use the remainder of your time at Stonehill.
A note on credits: No more than 60 credits can be transferred in; this has implications if you are planning to study abroad or take any future courses at a different college/university. More information on transferring credits to Stonehill.
