This page is for counselors who are assisting transfer students in their search and application processes. Castleton defines these applicants as students who have taken any college credit after high school graduation. Any student who has only received college credit for classes taken before graduating from high school is considered a first-year student.
Welcome! Castleton is a special place. Like many universities, we have outstanding academic programs, state of the art facilities, and a beautiful campus. It is the people of Castleton who set us apart from the others. Our students, faculty and staff together create a vibrant community where every person can make a difference. I invite you to come experience it for yourself by setting up a visit with us in the near future.
As a counselor who assists students with their search, you can appreciate just how stressful it can be for some individuals. Our goal is to alleviate as much of that stress as possible. Your input is extremely valuable to us as we review each applicant for admission. The information we learn from you is significant and often times not evident from just looking at the "numbers". Please contact us at anytime throughout the process. We can work together in the best interest of the student. On behalf of the entire Admissions Office, we look forward to working with you and your students.

Castleton Admissions reviews each applicant holistically; all application materials submitted are taken into consideration for acceptance. Our transfer counselor, Raphael Okutoro, conducts the initial read on applications from all transfer students, allowing every opportunity to get to know each applicant personally through all facets of their search process. After the initial read, applicants are presented to our Admissions Committee for final decision based on students’ academic and personal achievements.
Students must submit all required materials to be considered for admission. See a list of required materials for transfer students here. Incoming student averages are shared here as a guideline, yet we welcome and admit a broad range of students. We often work with students who are denied admission to plan a path for their future enrollment. We encourage personalized contact in order for us to best assist each student.
Please note: Averages listed here are the minimum requirements to be considered for our Nursing Dept.
