Looking to take the next step after community college? Or perhaps you’ve decided that your first college choice is not the right fit to help you achieve your goals. Wilkes University welcomes applications from students seeking to transfer from another institution.
We offer the resources of a large research university in the atmosphere of a small, liberal arts college. Here you can get to know professors one on one, immerse yourself in hands-on learning opportunities and internships, and dive into one or more of our 100-plus clubs and organizations.
Our transfer counselors are ready to help you get started. They'll review your transcripts and evaluate course credits. You can also use the online tool toward the bottom of this page to see some courses that transfer from specific institutions.
Please note: In order to remain eligible for the transfer scholarship, students must be enrolled as full-time, degree-seeking domestic student.
Wilkes was selected to the Phi Theta Kappa 2021 Transfer Honor Roll, which recognizes excellence in the development and support of dynamic and innovative transfer pathways for community college transfer students.
Education major Olivia Caraballo said she knew Wilkes was home the very first weekend she spent on campus. She was welcomed with open arms and now is so proud to "Be Colonel!"
Wilkes will review transfer credits from college/university courses in which a student has earned a C (2.0) or higher. Please review our transfer tool with available course equivalencies and core requirement equivalencies for a few listed colleges/universities. Please note some institutions and courses may not be listed, but courses may still transfer. Please contact your admissions counselor for other courses.
Wilkes University's core requirements are taken by all university students regardless of the chosen major. Transfer students may receive credit for courses due to course work completed prior to attending Wilkes.
The transfer process through admissions was very welcoming and helpful, whether it would be a last-minute tour of campus or weekly phone calls with your admissions counselor.Mark Chester
Wilkes accepts applications on a rolling basis. That means you will know your admission decision within a few weeks of completing your application.
