Transfer Students

You don't have to wait until the fall: Barry University is offering competitive, merit-based scholarships to qualified transfer applicants for the term beginning January 13, 2003.

Schedule a campus visit and see why Barry University is where you belong.

You'll go on a tour of our campus with an admissions ambassador -- a Barry student who can share some of his/her experiences of Barry with you. You'll also have a personal meeting with an admissions and a financial aid counselor. A few hours of your time will bring you a lot of clarity regarding your future. You'll leave knowing about:

  • Your Barry scholarship qualification
  • Your financial aid package (if your Institutional Student Aid Report is available)
  • Your transfer credits (if you bring your transcripts)
