A payment of $250 is required of every applicant to officially accept admission to the College and secure a spot in the student body. This deposit is nonrefundable if the applicant later decides not to enroll at the College during the year for which he or she was accepted.
To receive a preliminary review of your transfer credits, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the Unofficial Transfer Course Evaluation Request Form and your college transcript (which may be unofficial initially, although an official transcript is required to be considered for admission). In some cases, you may also be asked to provide a copy of a course syllabus or other supporting documents.
Find out more about transfer credit requests. You may also use the online Transfer Evaluation System to search by institution for courses already reviewed for transfer to Grove City College.
View our Transfer Credit Policies for complete requirements.
Financial aid may be available for transfer applicants who demonstrate financial need. Find out more about Financial Aid and Scholarships, and be sure to submit the Grove City College Financial Aid Application (different from the FAFSA) by your application deadline at the latest (Aug. 7 for fall transfer, Jan. 7 for spring transfer). Current students must reapply for financial aid each year.
Although Grove City College reserves most merit-based scholarships for incoming freshmen, we do offer a variety of scholarships for high-performing enrolled upperclassmen, including the Dean’s Scholarship and various Achievement Awards. We also accept outside scholarships from incoming transfers, which can significantly help to reduce the cost of attendance.
If you have any questions, contact the Office of Financial Aid at email@example.com or 724-458-3300.
