Transfer Students

Connect with BGSU

Due to COVID-19, the transfer process looks a little different, but we are still here to support you through your transition to BGSU. Below are some resources to utilize:

Interested in Transferring to BGSU?
We host weekly virtual info sessions for prospective transfer students, where you can connect with our Transfer Specialists and current BGSU transfer students.

Connect with academic representatives to learn more about your desired major/program.

Transfer of Credits

You're not just transferring schools, you're also transferring credits you worked hard to earn.  BGSU evaluates credits from all accredited institutions and can even evaluate credit earned from the military or prior learning assessments.  Learn more about available resources to help you estimate how your credits may transfer to BGSU.

Scholarships & Aid 

Finding the right financial fit is just as important as finding the right academic fit. BGSU offers merit and need based scholarships specifically for transfer students. Grants, loans, and work experiences are also available to help finance your BGSU education. Last year BGSU also awarded more than a quarter of a billion dollars in aid to over 80% of our entire student body.
