Transfer Admission

This is a community of people from all around the world, each with their own background and their own story. We're really interested in seeing all you love, everything that challenges you, and what you have learned, which together make you a distinct, singular person.

As a transfer student, you bring a unique perspective to our application process and our community. As you begin your transfer application process, please refer to the resources below.

Penn accepts Common App and the Coalition Application. We have no preference for either format and treat both applications equally in our process. We encourage you to review the features of each application format and use the platform that suits you best. You should submit only one application per admissions cycle and not mix-and-match across platforms.


Penn Admissions welcomes applications from members of the United States Armed Forces. For more information, please refer to the resources below and our frequently asked questions.
