Lynn University recognizes that the needs of transfer students may differ from those of first-year students. We work to make the transfer of credits and your transition to Lynn as seamless as possible.

You are considered a transfer student if you've attended another college or university after graduating from high school, and have obtained a minimum of 12 transferable credits.

If you have less than 12 transferable college credits, you should apply as a first-year student.

How to apply

To receive admission to Lynn University, you must send all required documents listed below to the Office of Admission. Send your application requirements and supporting documents before the priority deadline for your best chance of gaining admission to Lynn University.

Application requirements:

Institute for Achievement and Learning
