Join Us Fall or Spring

We accept transfer students at the beginning of the fall or spring semester. Transfer admission is rolling based on space availability. All admitted applicants receive a preliminary credit review of their transcripts within 2-3 weeks of the admission decision, and the Registrar’s Office performs an official review of your final transcript before you enter Washington College.

Students transferring to Washington College from a Maryland institution may see their transfer credits through the University of Maryland ArtSys program. Transfer students are admitted on a rolling basis. For the Fall semester, students are encouraged to apply by April 15 for the first round and by June 1 for round two. For the Spring semester, students are encouraged to apply by December 15.

Washington College employs a rolling admissions policy. However, we encourage applying by the dates below.
