Transferring to HWS

Hobart and William Smith welcome applications from qualified students who wish to transfer from two- or four-year institutions, students may be admitted at the beginning of either semester. HWS accepts a maximum of two years of college-level work (up to 16 three-credit-hour courses) from other undergraduate institutions.

Only courses in which a student has earned a C or better, or its equivalent, are considered for transfer credit. Transfer credits are used to determine placement in the curriculum and to exempt students from curriculum requirements.

Students who have completed an associate’s degree may enter with junior standing. However, depending on intended major and previous program of study, it may not be possible to complete a bachelor’s degree in two years.

Transfer students must spend a minimum of two years in residence at the Colleges.

For more information about the transfer process, please contact Marylyn O’Hora Uhnak, Director of International and Transfer Recruitment at (315) 781-3750 or uhnak@hws.edu.
