There's no one way to transfer. And every situation is unique.
Make Your Move
if either of the following apply to you, you’re considered a transfer student at Penn College:
- You took college classes after high school, but didn't earn a degree.
- You completed an associate's degree or higher.

Ask all previously attended colleges to send your official transcripts to the Admissions Office at Penn College. An official transcript must come directly from the previous college to Penn College.
If you’re still enrolled at another college or university, send us a partial, unofficial transcript showing your in-progress coursework now. This can be a screenshot of your current transcript, as long as it shows your name, school name, courses you’re enrolled in or have completed, and grades, if applicable. Then before you enroll have your school send us an official, final transcript reflecting all completed coursework and your earned degree, if applicable.
High School/GED Transcript
If you have not completed an associate’s degree or higher at the time of application to Penn College, we will also need one of the following:
- Your high school transcript. Ask your former high school to submit your official, final transcript with proof of graduation date.
- Your official GED transcript confirming receipt of a state diploma. You can obtain your official GED transcript through the Department of Education in the state from which your GED was received. In Pennsylvania, use www.diplomasender.com.
- Your Official HiSET high school equivalency credentials, as determined by your state's department of education.

And like many transfer students, you might already meet placement requirements through transfer credit.
