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.

ADMISSION APPLICATION PRIORITY SUBMISSION DATES

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 you attended on a full time basis. The College Report should reflect good academic and disciplinary standing at all institutions where you were previously enrolled. The report must be completed by a college official who has access to both your academic record and your disciplinary record.

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

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.

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).

In light of the widespread impact of COVID-19, Spring 2021 transfer applicants are no longer required to submit the Mid-Term Report Form by default. If the admission committee determines that the Mid-Term Report is required in support of your application, we will contact you directly. 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.

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.

In response to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on students and families, our $60 application fee has been waived for all transfer applications during the 2020-2021 admission cycle.

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 admission@stonehill.edu.

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. As a part-time student, you would not qualify for financial aid.
