Frequently Asked Questions
Who counts as a Transfer Applicant? Transfer applicants are students who have graduated from high school and enrolled into an accredited college or university.
- What if I enrolled at another school, but did not complete a full semester before deciding to transfer to Sewanee? A transfer applicant must have enrolled to another accredited institution. Even if no credits have been earned, if a student has graduated from high school and has enrolled at an accredited college or university we will review that student as a transfer applicant.
- What if I'm a high school student taking courses at a nearby college (dual-enrollment)? Students who are taking advantage of dual enrollment coursework are not considered transfer students.
- Am I eligible for scholarships and financial aid as a transfer applicant? Yes, transfer students are eligible for both academic scholarships and need-based financial aid. Incoming first-year students are awarded funding before transfer applicants, making transfer aid more competitive than that of first-year students. As a result, the review process for transfer applicants is need-aware.
