Transfer Students

Wittenberg welcomes applications from transfer students for both the fall and spring semesters. The transfer application process is designed to help us become acquainted with you. Each applicant is considered on the basis of individual qualifications both academic and non-academic.

Wittenberg has inspired generations of students to lead in their communities and around the world. We believe that every student should not only be able to make a successful living, but also a meaningful life.
