Transferring Made Easy

We seek to enroll students from diverse backgrounds and geographic locations with varied interests. At Hofstra, we value the credits you’ve earned at other institutions and maximize the transfer of those credits. To simplify the transfer process, we give our students greater flexibility in fulfilling general education requirements with previously completed coursework. Generally, courses in which you’ve received a grade of at least a C- may be transferred to Hofstra. In most cases, if a course you’ve taken at another institution is comparable to a course offered at Hofstra, you will receive credit.

While we consider transfer candidates on a rolling basis, we encourage you to apply early, especially if you’re interested in on-campus housing and available scholarships. A preliminary credit evaluation is completed after acceptance and prior to registration. We offer comprehensive academic advising prior to course registration as well as throughout your Hofstra experience.
