Applying for Transfer Admission

Stonehill uses the Common Application to collect all transfer applications.

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.

Spring Semester Transfer: December 1
Fall Semester Transfer: June 1 July 15 (all materials must be received by this date)
Spring Semester Transfer: December 1
Fall Semester Transfer: June 1 July 15

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 the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) 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.
