If your current university is closing, transitioning to Marywood University can provide a seamless pathway to continue your education. Below are the steps to transfer, highlighting our supportive measures like tuition matching and a no-fee application policy to simplify your transition.

Step 1: Apply for Admission

  • No Application Fee: Start your application through the Marywood Application or the Common App Transfer. Our no-fee policy is designed to simplify your transition, reducing financial barriers and streamlining the process.
  • Submit Required Documents: Ensure all necessary documentation, including transcripts and any required letters of recommendation, are submitted promptly.

Step 2: Assess and Transfer Your Credits

  • Consultation: Discuss your academic pathway with an admissions counselor to understand how your credits will transfer.

Step 3: Secure Your Financial Support

  • Tuition Matching: Apply for financial aid by submitting a valid FAFSA. This qualifies you for our tuition matching program, which aligns your out-of-pocket costs with what you previously paid, ensuring affordability.
