Admitted Transfer Students
Welcome transfer students! We get it—you already know the ropes and understand what it’s like to be a college student. Still, every campus is different, and we want to make sure you receive any support you need during your transition to Hamline.
Our staff is here to help you navigate a new campus with new policies, procedures, and culture. We can answer questions about your transfer credits, financial aid, academic advising, and help you jump into life at Hamline.
