Transfer Application


Thank you for considering transferring to Bryant.

Did you know that 1 in 7 students at Bryant transferred here?

In a perfect world, every student would be admitted to his or her first choice school, enter knowing exactly which major they will pursue, and experience a successful and happy four years. But, that isn't always what happens. Whatever your reason for considering a transfer – from graduating from a community college to choosing a different academic path to seeking a college that is a better fit for you – we are here to help you through the process.

Each year, Bryant University welcomes students with prior university/college credit into the university’s close-knit learning community. Fellow students, faculty, and staff are here to help you create your path, expand your world and achieve your success. At Bryant, transfer students looking to continue their education will find an institution that offers an exceptional education that combines theoretical and real-world knowledge with a global perspective, innovation and creativity, and character and leadership development - all in a distinctly student-centered learning environment that's transformative and empowering. 

Transfer applicants may apply for admission for the fall and spring semesters.  Candidates are expected to have obtained sufficient academic preparation for the Bryant curriculum through a combination of accredited secondary school and college coursework.
