We welcome transfers to Muhlenberg, and we accept transfer students in both the fall and spring. Transfer admission is granted on a space-contingent basis. The number of admitted transfer students each semester is directly related to the total enrollment at Muhlenberg.

Typically we admit 30-40 transfers every fall and another 10-15 for spring.


Fall transfer admission: June 15
Spring transfer admission: December 10

Am I a transfer?

If you have previously matriculated at another post-secondary institution, you’re a transfer applicant. Even if you have not earned credit at another institution, you can’t apply to Muhlenberg as a freshman.

Questions? Transfer candidates who are considering our full-time residential program contact our Transfer Coordinator in the Office of Admission.

If you are a part-time or full-time adult (over the age of 23) transfer student, please contact our School of Continuing Studies by calling 484-664-3300.


On-campus housing is required of all transfer students who do not live locally and wish to commute.

Financial Aid

Financial Aid is available for transfer students. Be sure to fill out the appropriate paperwork to maximize your opportunities. You’ll find directions in the Transfer checklist.


Once you’ve been admitted to Muhlenberg, we would be glad to do a “transcript read” to determine which of your credits will transfer from your previous institution(s). In order to do this, we’ll need an official college transcript reflecting your grades as well as course descriptions from the appropriate college catalog. Unfortunately, we cannot provide this service to all transfer applicants, but only to admitted transfers.
