Residency Requirements

Transfer students must be in residence for a minimum of three semesters during the junior and senior years, including the final semester. Transfer students must earn a minimum of 13 Bucknell course credits, regardless of the number of credits previously earned elsewhere.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Bucknell considers students for transfer for either fall or spring semesters. A student may transfer to Bucknell with no less than 15 semester hours and no more than 80 semester hours of college work. Therefore, students who have completed more than the equivalent of 2 and 1/2 years of college work are not eligible for transfer to Bucknell.

A 2.5 (A=4.0)GPA (grade point average)is required for consideration. Except for unique cases, freshmen should not apply for mid-year admission but should plan to complete the freshman year and seek sophomore admission to Bucknell.
