Degree Completion Transfer Students

With previous college experience, you know what you’re looking for when it comes to a learning environment where you will thrive.

From flexible programs and valuable practical opportunities to small classes and mentoring from subject experts, you’ll find that learning environment at Pfeiffer. We welcome:

Transfer students

Transfer students are those who have completed high school and attended another regionally accredited institution of higher learning. Transfer applicants should be eligible for readmission or should have graduated from, the last college attended.

Transfer students are often pleasantly surprised at how welcoming the Pfeiffer University community is. You are much more than a number here; we delight in helping each student find his or her greatest potential in an inspiring educational setting.

Transfer students are encouraged to request advance evaluations of their transcripts to determine which courses will be accepted for transfer to Pfeiffer University and how credit will be applied toward either the general education requirements, the major program or electives.

Readmission applicants

Readmission applicants are students who have withdrawn from Pfeiffer University and wish to return. Welcome back!

Non-degree students

Non-degree students are those who wish to take courses without seeking a degree from Pfeiffer University. Engage in exceptional opportunities to learn from subject experts and your fellow students. Here at Pfeiffer, we give every student — traditional or nontraditional — our full attention.

Rolling Admissions

Pfeiffer University uses a rolling admissions system but recommends that students submit their applications for admission by May 1 to ensure space availability. The deadline for applications to be reviewed for honors awards is Jan. 8. 

Transferring Credits/Prior Learning Credits

You may have credits that can transfer or may be able to test out of certain classes. Please go to our Assessment and Testing page to get more information about prior learning credits, portfolio assessments, CLEP testing and other options to gain or transfer credits.
