If your current school isn't serving your needs or meeting your expectations, Minerva University might be the experience you are looking for. The application process for transfer students is almost exactly the same as it is for those applying directly from high school, or secondary school.
Almost 20% of our current student body came to Minerva University from different institutions, with some students even having earned an undergraduate degree elsewhere. It is important to note that there are no introductory courses at Minerva University; you are required to complete the Foundation Year curriculum.
Note: Transferred credits are at the discretion of relevant college deans. But, because of the nature of Minerva’s curriculum, you must satisfy all core requirements so transfer credits can only be applied to elective courses. If you’re admitted to Minerva and would like to transfer credits from completed university courses, you must submit a description of each course and the grades you received.
