Kenyon welcomes students who apply for admission after beginning undergraduate study at another institution. The admissions staff recognizes that not all students are comfortable with their initial college choice—and that academic and career goals often change during the college years. For this reason, the College accepts a limited number of transfer students each year, depending on their class year and the availability of living accommodations.
Students who wish to transfer to Kenyon should present secondary-school and college records that reflect an ability to do work of the quality expected at the College. In most cases, successful transfer applicants present grades of B or better in their current courses.

Candidates for fall transfer will be notified of the admission decision on April 15. Admission decisions for spring transfer candidates will be mailed on December 1. Admitted students who elect to attend the College must pay a nonrefundable enrollment deposit of $350.
