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.
Complete the Transfer Common Application.
Remember to check deadlines on the Dates & Deadlines page.
Kenyon provides financial assistance to approximately 65 percent of our students. More about costs & financial aid.
Candidates for fall transfer will be notified of the admission decision during the week of April 30 - May 4. Admitted students who elect to attend the College must pay a nonrefundable enrollment deposit of $350. Jay Bonham, associate director of admissions, serves as coordinator of transfer admission. Please contact Jay with any additional questions.
