Transfer Student Application Requirements
Transfer students should apply to Babson College online via the Common Application website.
Official Test Scores
Applicants who graduated from high school less than five years ago are required to submit official scores from either the SAT I or ACT. Students are not required to submit the writing portion of the SAT I, the writing portion of the ACT, or SAT II test results.
A TOEFL, IELTS, or Duolingo score report is required of all applicants for whom English is not their native language. In some cases we offer waivers for students who have demonstrated high proficiency in reading, writing, and English.
If you have questions about your situation, please contact us.
Mid-Term Report Form
The Mid-Term Report Form (PDF) is required for all students currently enrolled in college-level classes. Every class you are currently taking must be listed on this form—even if your class has not yet had a midterm exam. Please ask each professor to comment on your academic progress to date. Also, please make sure that the course number, course title, and credit hours are clearly listed. This form must be submitted with your completed application by the application deadline. It is your responsibility to inform us if your course schedule changes after you submit the form.
The College Report is required for all transfer applicants. Please have your Academic Dean or Student Affairs Dean fill out the form from EACH college or university that you have attended as a full-time student. The College Report form(s) must be submitted along with your other application credentials by the application deadline.
Transfer applicants are required to submit at least one letter of recommendation from a college professor. It is your responsibility to ensure that your recommendations are received by the admission office by the stated deadlines.
High School Transcripts
We require an official transcript for all secondary schools you have attended. It is your responsibility to ensure that your transcripts are received by the stated deadlines.
Official college transcripts must be sent from every institution of higher education you have attended. It is your responsibility to ensure that your transcripts are received seven business days before classes begin in your first semester.
Applicants are required to submit syllabi for all college-level courses for which they would like to receive transfer credit. Please visit the Transfer Credit Application section of our website for more information.
While not required, interviews are strongly recommended for prospective transfer students.
International students need to submit a certified English translation of high school transcripts, college transcripts, and course materials. The official certification should be attached to your original documents. It also is helpful if your college transcript indicates the credit for the courses you are taking as equivalent to semester hours. For additional requirements, such as visa information, please visit the international student section of our website.
