Transfer Students

Say hello to your New Home!

Leighton University welcomes and values all transfer students! Discover how Leighton can be the best fit to complete your academic journey.

A Transfer Friendly University
Looking to continue your education at a place where you have the flexibility and freedom to explore diverse interests and make a global impact? If you have already started your college or university studies at another college or university after graduating from high school or earning a GED, and have or will have earned 26 credit hours (semester hours) of required transferable coursework at another college or university, apply for transfer admission. You’ll see a list of application requirements below, but these pieces only tell us part of the story. The admissions committee conducts a holistic review of every applicant based on his or her accomplishments, goals, and fit with our community. We’re looking for students who will truly thrive as Leighton University's undergraduates.


Is it Ok 2 Transfer?
Plenty of students transfer between colleges every year. In fact, about one-third of all students will swap institutions at least once before earning their degree.

Why Transfer Colleges
One excellent reason to transfer is because you are unhappy. If you find that the school you are attending is not the best-fit college for you, you don’t have to settle for four years of misery.

Plan to Transfer Now!
Transferring to Leighton University is not like applying to college the first time. Your high school transcript and test scores will take a back seat to your college transcript.
