Transfer Admission

We’re waiting for you.

We love transfer students at Butler. Because at this point in your college career, you know exactly what you’re looking for. And you’re willing to put in the work to get it.

In fact, that’s a pretty good description of a lot of the people you’ll meet here: focused, ready to work, and not put off by doing something challenging—especially when the rewards are there for the taking. We know that transferring means extra work for you, and we want to make it as simple as possible.

Fall 2022 Transfer Application Still Available

Butler has moved to be Common App-exclusive beginning with the 2023 admission cycle. However, prospective transfer students interested in applying for fall 2022 admission can still choose to apply with our Butler Application, if desired. Transfer students can also apply for 2022 admission using the Common App.

Applying as a Transfer Student

To submit a transfer application, you must have already completed 12 or more credit hours of college coursework at a regionally accredited university after graduating high school, or be seeking a second bachelor’s degree.

At Your Service

This isn’t your first rodeo, but transferring raises all kinds of questions. That’s where our Assistant Director of Transfer Admission comes in. She’s not a bot—she’s a real person, she takes care of each of our prospective transfer students, and she’s ready to talk to you.

Financial Aid & Scholarships

Butler offers both merit and need-based gift aid to select incoming transfer students. Federal and state aid may also be available to you. We highly recommend applying before our priority application deadlines for maximum consideration for Butler gift aid.

Transferring Credits

The Office of Registration and Records  will evaluate your transcript to determine which of the classes you’ve taken can qualify for credit at Butler. If the class was taught at a regionally accredited institution, was at least 100-level, and you earned a C-minus or better, it is eligible for consideration.
