Transfer Students

Thiel welcomes transfer students for both the fall and spring semesters, and is committed to making your transfer as smooth as possible. Our goal is to help you succeed.

Request Transfer Credit Evaluation

Send us information about the courses and credits you've already taken, and we will evaluate them to let you know how much will transfer over to Thiel College credits!

Transfer Student Campus Visits

Attend an individual campus visit day to learn more about the transfer student process. Choose from convenient morning or afternoon sessions.

  • In addition, you can contact the Transfer Coordinator, Justin Gregorich, at 724-456-3482 via call or text message to schedule a visit

What should you bring with you?

  • Official copies of all transcripts in sealed envelopes from your current/previous colleges or universities (unofficial copies are acceptable if currently taking classes during your visit)
  • Copy of your high school transcript with SAT or ACT scores

General Transfer Application Requirements

  • Official Application for Admission
  • All official college transcripts (we will need if you were enrolled for any period of time)
  • Official ACT/SAT test scores if fewer than 12 college credits earned

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I apply?

Thiel has a rolling admissions policy, meaning the sooner you apply the sooner you will hear of your application status and learn about merit-based financial aid. We encourage students to apply at least 30 days prior to the start of classes for the semester in which they wish to begin and schedule a campus visit to meet with the transfer coordinator.

Are there minimum requirements to transfer to Thiel?

Typically a minimum 2.0 GPA is preferred for transfer student admission. We also review your high school transcript and SAT/ACT scores if applicable.

How do I know what classes will transfer?

Most of your credits will transfer if you received a "C" or better in classes taken at an accredited college or university. Once your official college transcript is received the Registrar will evaluate your credits. Thiel will accept a maximum of 94 transferrable credits. You will need to complete at least 30 credit hours at Thiel to graduate.

What scholarships are available for transfer students?

Merit-based scholarships up to $20,000 are available for both resident students and commuting/off campus students.

When can I register for classes?

Students can register for classes on one of the registration days after they are accepted and have paid a $150 non-refundable reservation deposit.

Is housing available?

Thiel is a residential campus and housing is available for transfer students. Housing information and selection will be provided to students after they are registered for classes.
