Contents of Transfer Application

An application for transfer admission consists of the following components:

Application Form and Fee Juniata uses the "Common Application" Transfer Application. Forms may be obtained at www.commonapp.org. The application requires an essay which answers one of the essay questions listed in the application for admission. The applicant should complete the form and submit online.

High School Academic Records The Office of Admission requires an official, final high school transcript indicating final grades, class rank (if applicable) and date of graduation. The transcript should be sent directly from the school to the Juniata admission office.

Standardized Test Scores SAT and or ACT scores should also be submitted. Scores can either be sent directly from the testing agency, or may be indicated on the official high school transcript. Juniata 's code number for the SAT is 2341, and for the ACT 3600. SAT/ACT results are often waived for qualified transfer students whose previous institution did not require scores for admission.

College Records Transfer applicants must also submit an official transcript from each college previously attended and a college catalog or course descriptions of classes taken at previous institutions. The transcript must be sent directly to Juniata from the former institution(s). Catalogs and course descriptions are used to evaluate transfer credit.

Statement of Interest Transfer applicants must submit a written statement of interest indicating the reason(s) for transfer and potential benefits from enrolling at Juniata. This is in addition to the application essay.
