August Orientation and January Orientation
In August, transfer students arrive on-campus with the incoming first-year class. This allows transfer students an opportunity to become familiar with the campus and also to meet other transfer students. During August Orientation there are special sessions tailored to the interests of transfer students. For those transfer students entering in January, there will be an individual orientation held at that time.
For specific questions concerning this orientation please contact Christie Kasson at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 740-587-6224.

Can I apply as a First-Year Transfer Student?
Denison does not consider applications from first-year students who wish to transfer mid-year.
Are there Merit Scholarships available for Transfer Students?

How do I learn what credits will transfer?
If admitted to Denison, Sandra Cook, Transfer Credit Coordinator, will do a transfer credit evaluation. This evaluation includes a summary of all courses and credit hours acceptable toward graduation from Denison, as well as what General Education requirements will need to be fulfilled at Denison. The Transfer Credit Coordinator can be reached at email@example.com or by calling 740-587-5783.
What is the process for transferring credit?
What do I need to know when reviewing the evaluation of my credits?
How do my previous courses apply towards a major?
Individual department chairs are generally responsible for deciding which prior coursework will satisfy the requirements of a particular major. If admitted to Denison, students should coordinate with the registrar and department chairs to determine which requirements in a particular major have been satisfied and how to schedule the remaining courses. Some majors require students to start early in their college career and are more difficult to complete for transfer students arriving later in their degree.
How do I register for classes?
Students may register for classes by scheduling an appointment with Lisa Ashton, Registration Coordinator. Registration may be completed either by phone or in person. The Registration Coordinator may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 740-587-6659.
What are the housing options?
Denison is a residential college with a variety of housing options. All students are required to live on-campus unless they live within a 25 mile radius with a parent or guardian. Transfer students will not be roomed with first-year students. For specific questions concerning housing please contact Donna Davis at email@example.com or by calling 740-587-6272.
Test Optional Policy
Submission of the SAT or ACT is optional. The quality of your academic performance and the rigor of courses selected at both high school and college are the most important facts considered by the Admissions Committee. Independent of the admission process and solely for the purpose of the College’s research, students who have taken the standardized tests must submit the official results of these tests upon enrolling.
