Transfer Admissions And Requirements

Transfer students must follow the regular admission procedure. In addition, they must forward all official college transcripts describing the courses for which credit is to be claimed. Transfer students who have completed less than 30 credits in the liberal arts and sciences must submit proof of high school graduation. Transfer students may request an interview for an evaluation of credits before they file an application. Transfer students should have applications and all necessary transcripts submitted by January 1 for admission in the spring semester and by August 15 for admission in the fall semester. Applications submitted after these dates will be eligible for late registration.

Transfer students must be in good academic standing at their previous college in order to be accepted into Molloy College, carrying a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 for most majors. Only credit hours are accepted in transfer; the cumulative average begins with a student's first semester at Molloy.

The admissions office will do a credit evaluation either during the applicant's interview or upon acceptance into the college. The "status sheet," part of the student's acceptance package, indicates those courses which are accepted for credit, and identifies all other coursework needed by the student to complete his/her degree at Molloy. The last 30 credits toward graduation normally must be completed at Molloy. In addition, students must take at least one-half of the major requirements at the College. Any exception to this must be obtained in writing from the office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs.

Students electing to complete a minor at the college must take at least one-half of the requirements for the minor at Molloy.

Transfer education applicants must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 in previous college work in order to be accepted into Molloy's teacher certification programs (Childhood, Adolescence and Special Education). Students who would be entering Molloy with more than junior status (64 credits) are encouraged to arrange for an interview with an admissions counselor in order to discuss possible program options. Education students must attend Molloy full-time days during Phase II and III of the teacher certification program.

Transfer nursing applicants fall into three categories: those who are registered nurses with Associate's degrees in nursing, registered nurses with diploma school backgrounds and those who wish to enroll at Molloy as generic nursing students. Generic nursing applicants must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 in previous coursework and have taken at least secondary school biology and chemistry in recent years. Registered nurses must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 and must hold a New York State license for registered professional nurses valid for the semester in which they intend to enroll.
