Transfer Application Instructions
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.
The Stonehill Member Screen questions give us a few more details that are not included in the main section of the Common Application. After adding Stonehill to your list of colleges through the college search function, you will be able to answer the Stonehill questions. Stonehill requires that applicants submit an essay of 500 words or less that answers the following prompt:
2018 Stonehill writing supplement (required - 500 WORD MAXIMUM)
In your own words, please explain your reasons for transferring to Stonehill and the goals you hope to accomplish in your college career.
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). We expect that your transcript will show successful completion and graduation from high school.
A College Report reflecting good academic and disciplinary standing at all institutions where you were previously enrolled is required. The report must be completed by a college official who has access to both your academic record and your disciplinary record. A College Report is required for any institution you attended on a full time basis.
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. Instructor Evaluation forms are included in the online Common Application.
In light of the widespread impact of COVID-19, we are no longer requiring the Mid-Term Report Form for Fall 2020 transfer applicants. Our hope is that removing this barrier allows you to make progress towards the completion of your application. 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 this semester.
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.
If you have received a 4 or a 5 on an AP exam, 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.
We want to know as much as we can about the education you’ve already received. If you’ve taken college-level courses, we’ll need to see course descriptions (they can be taken right from the college catalog).
Pay the $60.00 Application Filing Fee.
When your transfer application is received electronically by Stonehill you will be sent an acknowledgement email. You will also be given a password that will allow you to access the Admission Portal where you can check on the status of your application materials. 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.
Deferrals and Part-Time Status
Students who are accepted can defer their admission for one year. Students who wish to defer need to pay their enrollment deposit to hold their place in the class and complete a deferral form. 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 old transfer application.
You can attend Stonehill as a part–time degree student, but part-time degree 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 part-time degree program if you could only attend classes at night. You should know that part time students do not qualify for financial aid for these courses and they cannot live on campus.
