Each semester we welcome a number of students who transfer from other colleges and universities. Transfer students bring a variety of experiences and perspectives that contribute richly to our campus community.
Here we answer a few questions that transfer students frequently ask. And, as always, if we haven't answered your question, please let us know. If you have questions about transfer credit, please contact our records office.
Do I follow the same steps as other applicants to apply for admission?
For transfer students, we only require that you provide us with transcripts of all completed college coursework thus far, a reference, and your personal statement of faith in addition to your application for admission.
Do I need to submit my high school transcript?
No, not for application purposes. But our Records Office may request your high school transcript from you before you matriculate in order to determine math placement levels as you pre-register.
Do I have to submit my SAT, ACT or CLT scores?
No, not for application purposes. But our Records Office may request your test scores from you before you matriculate in order to determine math placement levels as you pre-register.
Which office do I send my transcripts to?
Send your transcripts to the Office of Admissions. Admissions will share them with the Office of Records.
I'm still taking classes at another college or university. Should I send an unofficial transcript now or wait until I can get an official transcript?
Send an unofficial transcript now, and then send an official transcript once you have completed all of your courses.
Who should I contact about transferring my credits from another college or university?
Once you have sent your transcript to the Office of Admissions, contact the Office of Records. The Office of Records can help you determine how your courses will transfer based on an evaluation of your official or unofficial transcript and the major you plan to pursue at Covenant.
I have already taken a "college life" course at another college. Do I still have to register for Covenant's Christian Mind course?
Yes. A Covenant education is unique, and it starts with "The Christian Mind" course. This class serves as an introduction to how we approach the integration of faith and learning at Covenant. It also serves as a way to make sure that all students, whatever their background, have a common language and experience upon which they can build their academic and social communities here at the College.
