Virtual Transfer Interviews

A Virtual Transfer Interview will allow you to speak directly with one of our transfer admission counselors. Virtual Transfer Interviews provide opportunity for a candidate to discuss extenuating circumstances, either academic or personal, that have impacted their academic journey. A transfer interview is best suited for a candidate who wishes to share information with a counselor about their record that is not readily available on their transcript or supporting admission documents. If you are looking for more information regarding our transfer application process or application deadlines, we invite you to register for a Virtual Transfer Open House.

Applying for Transfer Admission

The Common Application

The Common Application is an easy-to-use college application system. You’ll need to provide some basic information about yourself and your family; and some more detailed information about your education and your extracurricular activities.

Transfer Deadlines

The earlier that you submit your transfer application, the sooner the Office of Admission can contact you to let you know if pieces of your application are still missing. The earlier that your application is complete, the earlier you will receive an admission decision. Applications received after our application deadline will be reviewed on a space available basis.

ADMISSION APPLICATION DEADLINES
Spring Semester Transfer: December 1
Fall Semester Transfer: April 1*

*The Common Application program for students interested in transferring to Stonehill for the Fall 2021 term will open in January 2021.

FINANCIAL AID FILING DEADLINES

Decision Release Timeline

Transfer admissions decisions will be released on a rolling basis as students complete their applications.

Merit Scholarships for Transfer Students

All transfer applicants are eligible to be considered for our merit scholarships, which range in value between $10,000 and $28,000 per year. If you applied to Stonehill as a first-year student and were awarded a merit scholarship along with your offer of admission, the College will honor or exceed that award amount so long as your academic performance in college is commensurate with your record of achievement in high school. All merit scholarships are renewable for up to three subsequent years as long as you remain a full-time student, meet the required renewal grade point averages associated with your merit award and maintain an acceptable disciplinary record.

 

No separate application is required for transfer merit scholarship consideration. However, we do require that you submit both the FAFSA and CSS Profile if you are seeking need-based financial aid. Deadlines for those need-based financial aid applications align with our transfer application deadlines (see below for more information).

Applying for Financial Aid

Stonehill and the Office of Student Financial Services is dedicated to helping families navigate the financial aid process to ensure they make a four-year degree affordable.

  • How to Apply

    Because there is great demand for financial aid, students must file a renewal Free Application for Federal Student Aid (“FAFSA”) each year in order to continue receiving scholarships, grants, loans, and work study from Stonehill and government sources.

  • Cost of Attendance

    An estimated Cost of Attendance provides students and parents with projected educational costs associated with full-time attendance for a one year period. Knowing the Cost of Attendance can help you budget and better plan the financing of your education.

  • Scholarships & Grants

    Scholarships and grants (or “gift aid”) are financial aid awards that you don’t have to pay back. Some gift aid is awarded based on merit (the recognition of outstanding academic achievement), and some gift aid is awarded based on your financial need.

COVID-19 Update

We are pleased to be welcoming visitors to campus once again through our Self-Guided Tours program. While access to campus remains limited to this program at this time in order to best protect the health and safety of all in our community, we hope to be able to offer additional opportunities for campus visits soon. In the meantime, we invite you to take part in one or more of our virtual programs as an introduction to the Stonehill experience.

 

We know that campus visits are a critical part of every student’s college search process and thank you for your patience and understanding. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admission at (508) 565-1373 or admission@stonehill.edu.
