Transfer Students

Simmons has been closely following reports of the COVID-19/Coronavirus both here in the United States and abroad. We understand that these events may have had an impact on you and your schools.

Please review our admission requirements & deadlines for more information on submitting application materials and extended application deadlines.

Transferring to Simmons is easier than you think

As you prepare your Simmons application materials, remember that our admission staff is here to give you the information, advice, and the personal attention you need to make the process go smoothly.

Please note: A student is only considered a transfer student if they have attempted 17 or more college-level credits after earning their high school diploma or equivalent. Students who have earned 16 or less credits, in a degree seeking program or not, must apply as a first-year student.
