Stonehill College uses the Common Application to collect all transfer applications.

The Common Application
The Common Application is an easy-to-use college application system. You will need to provide basic information about yourself and more detailed information about your academic history. You will then have the opportunity to supply supporting information such as experiences and achievements. Finally, as an applicant to Stonehill, you will be required to answer specific questions from the College, such as your intended entry term, your academic area of interest, and your preferred residential status. An essay describing your reasons for transferring to Stonehill (500 word maximum) will also be required.

Transfer Application Deadlines

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

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

Additional Transfer Application Elements

As part of your application for transfer, you will be required to answer the following essay question:

In your own words, please explain your reasons for transferring to Stonehill and the goals you hope to accomplish in your college career.

(500 word maximum)

Your final official High School Transcript will need to be submitted as part of your application.

Your transcript should include your academic record for grades 9, 10, 11 and 12. Your transcript should also show your cumulative grade point average (GPA), your class rank (if your school calculated one), and a date of graduation. We expect that your transcript will show successful completion and graduation from high school.

This document is typically submitted by your high school through the Common Application’s interface for school officials.

The Common Application's College Report is required for any institution where you attended on a full time basis. The College Report should reflect good academic and disciplinary standing at any institution(s) where you were previously enrolled. The report must be completed by college officials who have access to both your academic record and your disciplinary record.

This document should be sent to directly to a college official at your current or prior institution(s) by you, the applicant.

Please request that the completed College Report form be scanned and sent to or mailed to:

Stonehill College
Office of Admission
320 Washington Street
Easton, MA 02357

Instructor Evaluations help us get to know you from a different perspective. The evaluation form will ask your professor to provide insights into your intellectual promise, creative thought, leadership, integrity, and self-confidence. Ask for evaluations from professors who know you well, and be sure to ask far enough in advance for them to thoughtfully consider your time together!

We require that you provide one (1) Instructor Evaluation.

These documents are typically submitted by your professor through the Common Application’s interface for school officials.

Your official College Transcript will need to be submitted as part of your application. If you’ve attended other colleges in the past, we’ll need to see those official transcripts, too.

These documents are typically submitted by your college or university through the Common Application’s interface for school officials.

If the admission committee determines that the Mid-Term Report is required in support of your application, we will contact you directly. Please note that should you enroll at Stonehill College, you will be required to provide a final transcript from your current institution that includes the final grade earned, or Pass/Fail distinction, for each class taken in your last semester.

If you received a 4 or a 5 on an AP exam, you may be eligible to receive transfer credit. To determine if your AP credits will transfer, please send us the official Student Score Report for Colleges and Universities from the College Board.

Stonehill does not collect an application fee from transfer candidates. You may submit your application for transfer without payment.

Requirements for International Applicants

For students who intend to transfer to Stonehill from a university outside of the United States, we require a course-by-course credential evaluation by a NACES member organization. This will help Stonehill evaluate your curriculum, your grades, and your potential for transferring credit to our degree programs. If your transcripts and documents are not in English, we also require a word-for-word literal translation to accompany your original documents. Most transcript evaluators should be able to provide a translation in addition to a course-by-course evaluation. While we can accept any course-by-course evaluation from a NACES member organization, we most frequently recommend SpanTran, World Education Services (WES) and Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE)

Stonehill has established a relationship with SpanTran that empowers students to apply for a course-by-course evaluation and submit transcripts via SpanTran's online pathway. The pathway also provides a discount for Stonehill transfer applicants. 

SpanTran Pathway - Stonehill College

International first-year and transfer applicants whose native language is not English are required to submit Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), International English Language Testing System (IELTS), or Duolingo English Test (DET) scores as part of their application for admission.

The recommended minimum TOEFL score is 80 on the internet-based exam. The recommended minimum IELTS score is 6.5. The recommended minimum Duolingo English Test score is 120.

While U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents whose native language is not English are not required to submit the TOEFL, IELTS, or DET, applicants are welcome to do so to better demonstrate their English proficiency.

The International Student Certification of Finances must be filled out and returned with supporting documentation (Bank Statements, Affidavits of Support, etc.) dated within 3 months of the submission of the form before a decision can be made on your application and eligibility for a student visa.  

While Stonehill offers competitive merit scholarships that range from $10,000 to $30,000 per year, international students are not eligible for need-based financial assistance.

Your Stonehill Applicant Portal

After you apply, you will receive access to your Stonehill applicant portal account, which will include a checklist and status for all required supporting documentation.

You will be able to see the date when each of the parts of your application has been received and which documents have not been received. We cannot review your application until it is complete, so we urge you to keep checking your admission portal until all materials have been received.

If you have any questions about your Stonehill applicant portal account or supporting documentation checklist, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admission at 508-565-1373 or

Enrollment Deferrals

Students who are accepted can defer their enrollment for up to one year. Students who wish to defer need to pay their enrollment deposit and complete an enrollment deferral form to hold their place at the College. Students who defer their admission may not enroll in classes during the deferment period. If a deferred student does take additional classes, then their deferral is canceled and they would need to reapply or reactivate their transfer application.

Attending Stonehill Part-Time

You can attend Stonehill as a part–time student; however, part-time students can only take one or two courses per semester. Most of the classes at Stonehill are offered during the day and therefore you would not be able to complete a degree program part-time if you could only attend classes at night. Part-time students cannot live on campus. Most of Stonehill's funded financial aid requires full-time attendance. However, some government programs only require part-time attendance, though the amounts would be prorated.
