Applicants who have at least 12 college level credits from a regionally accredited college or university would be considered a transfer applicant. (High school students with advanced placement and college credits should apply as first-year applicants.)

In an effort to support those impacted by Covid-19, Barry University has created the Economic Relief Grant for eligible domestic transfer students. Domestic transfers for Fall 2020 that submit a FAFSA and express financial need, are eligible for consideration.
