Requirements / Decisions
REQUIREMENTS. Transfer applicants are reviewed on their academic progress from their former college(s)/university(ies). For most majors, Springfield College seeks to enroll students with no less than a cumulative GPA of a 2.7. Spaces in the athletic training, atheltic training/doctorate in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and physician assistant programs are limited and as such the competition is fierce for transfer students. If you are interested in one of the above named programs of study please contact the transfer coordinator.
DEADLINES. Students wishing to enroll in January must submit a transfer application by Dec. 1. Supporting credentials may be received up until Dec. 15. Students wishing to enroll in September must submit a transfer application by July 15. Supporting credentials may be received up until July 30.
Application deadlines for Athletic Training/Doctor of Physical Therapy Dual Degree, Athletic Training, and Physical Therapy are Dec. 1. Supporting credentials may be received up until Dec. 15.
The Physician Assistant application deadline is Jan. 15. Supporting credentials may be received up until Feb. 1.
Confidentiality of Admissions Records. Our admissions process includes more than academic transcripts and standardized test results. We depend on the evaluation of teachers, counselors, headmasters, alumni, employers, and interviewers to learn as much about each candidate as possible.
All reports submitted in support of a candidate's application become part of our confidential admissions file. The Office of Admissions protects the privacy of the applicant by limiting the accessibility of admissions folders to those officers and employees of the College officially concerned with the admissions process.
The reports in support of the application are used only for admissions purposes and do not become part of the permanent record if the candidate enrolls at Springfield College. Only the application, official transcript, and test results are forwarded to the Office of the Registrar.
