Transfer Students

Old Westbury welcomes qualified candidates from two- and four-year colleges and universities. The college has also developed detailed articulation agreements with regional two-year colleges, designed to encourage and facilitate transfers into upper division academic programs.
Our low student to faculty ratio enables students to become more involved with the professors and enjoy a more personal atmosphere. Internship opportunities or opportunities to work with faculty on research projects are just a few of the reasons students transfer to Old Westbury.

Admission to Old Westbury is granted for both the Fall and Spring semesters. To apply as a transfer student you will need a grade point average of at least 2.0. Academic programs such as those with the School of Business and Teacher Education Department require a higher GPA*. Transfer candidates in good academic standing with fewer than 24 credits must meet the admission requirement for both freshman level and transfer level students. In addition to official college transcripts, an official high school transcript and a copy of the candidate’s SAT/ACT scores must be forwarded to the College for admission consideration. Applicants with over 24 credits that have not earned an Associate degree must also submit proof of high school graduation (final high school transcript with actual date of graduation or a copy of a high school diploma).

If you would like to visit the college with transcripts of all your previous course work, an Enrollment Services Counselor can advise you with regard to admission. To make an appointment call the Office of Enrollment Services at (516) 876-3073 or send your email message to enroll@oldwestbury.edu.
