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 ensure you receive any support you may 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, and academic advising and help you jump into life at Hamline.

4. Submit your official final transcripts and test scores

Transcripts must be official and should be sent from college or university directly to Hamline. Transcripts can be sent electronically or mailed by your school to Hamline. If you sent your transcript earlier and anticipate completing another term at your current institution, please send your updated transcripts to Hamline so we may evaluate them for course equivalencies.

5. Schedule an appointment with the Center for Academic Success and Achievement (CASA)

New transfer students entering in the fall or spring should schedule an appointment with the Center for Academic Success and Achievement (CASA) by calling 651-523-2912. During this appointment, we will review your transfer coursework, help you plan your schedule, and go over information you should know as a new student.

6. Submit your immunization records

Per Hamline University’s Immunization Policy, Hamline students must satisfy vaccination requirements. Students need to upload an official immunization record that includes legal name, date of birth and dates of administered immunizations. Failure to comply will result in a registration hold on their account.
