Traditional Undergraduate Transfer Admissions

Welcome! We're glad that you're interested in pursuing an education of mind and heart at Whitworth. Our transfer students come from two-year colleges, other private liberal arts colleges and larger public universities. But from the moment you arrive on campus you are a part of the Whitworth community, and we value your unique perspective and contributions to the classroom and to campus life.

  • Key Dates & Deadlines for undergraduate transfer applicants.
  • Whitworth University admits transfer students for fall and spring terms.
