Transferring to MU

Making the decision to transfer from one school to another can be a difficult one. Whether you are transferring from a community college or a four-year institution, the transfer process is often filled with questions. We have laid out the steps you will take at Marymount below in order to make the process as smooth and transparent as possible for you.



Admissions Requirements

All transfer applicants must have a cumulative college GPA of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale to be considered for admission. High school GPA and SAT or ACT scores will only be considered for applicants with fewer than 30 credits.

Required Materials

Transfer applicants with 30 or more credits from an accredited college or university must submit the following to be considered for admission:
  • Completed transfer application (apply online or download PDF)
  • $40.00 nonrefundable application fee
  • Official transcripts from all colleges or universities attended
  • One letter of recommendation from a professor, advisor, or employer
  • Additional materials are required for nursing students and international students.
Transfer applicants with fewer than 30 credits should submit the following additional items:
  • Official high school transcript
  • Official SAT or ACT scores (This is optional if you had above a 3.0 High School GPA and weren't homeschooled.)

All submitted documents become University property and may not be returned.

Note: Due to manual entry of certain documents, please allow up to two weeks to begin processing your application. 

Application Deadlines

While we don't have a rigid application deadline, we recommend that you complete your application by:
  • July 1 for fall entry
  • December 1 for spring entry
This will allow you enough time to meet with your advisor, schedule your courses, and, if you plan to live on campus, secure housing.
