How to Apply as a Transfer Student

Students who have attempted postsecondary college credit(s), following high school graduation or after receiving a GED, are considered transfer students. The Office of Admissions works closely with transfer students to help make your transition to Castleton as easy as possible. There are many excellent opportunities at Castleton for you to complete your degree, and we are excited to work with you!

Transfer Credit Evaluation

The Preliminary Transfer Evaluation is completed by the Registrar’s Office to the student once the student has been accepted for admission. Notification is sent to the student from the Registrar’s Office when credits have been evaluated, and students can then access this information on their Castleton portal.

For more detailed information, please see information for Evaluation of Transfer Credit within our academic catalogs. For questions regarding transfer credit evaluation, please contact the Registrar’s Office through the Financial & Registration Services Office at (802) 468-6070.
