Thank you for your interest in Springfield College. The College welcomes transfer students from many two- and four-year colleges and universities, with approximately 100 students transferring to Springfield College annually.
The College assists transfer students with making a seamless transition, both academically and socially. Transfer Student Summer Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR) provides a great opportunity for students to meet other transfer students, current students, and faculty, as well as to get registered for classes. Students also have a chance to participate in New Student Orientation (NSO) where they’ll discuss the ins and outs of the transfer experience, as well as connect with other transfer students.
Springfield College is a welcoming community. Transfer students quickly become involved in campus life and become active members and leaders in community service programs, academic and student organizations, athletics, club sports, and more.
