Villanova University welcomes transfer applications from students with previous college experience from other institutions. To be eligible for transfer admission to Villanova, you must have enrolled in college as a degree-seeking student or a full-time student after completing high school. If you were previously enrolled at Villanova, you will need to contact the Dean of the college to seek re-enrollment.
Admission criteria and prior course selections vary slightly depending upon the college and academic program to which you apply. Only completed files will be reviewed, therefore students should monitor their Applicant Status Page to view any missing requirements. All candidates will be notified of their admission decision through their status page as well.
For consideration, a minimum college cumulative GPA of a 3.00/4.00 is strongly recommended for all transfer students.
