What do I need to transfer?
To apply for admission to Manchester University as a transfer student, you can apply online using Manchester's Application or via The Common Application. You will also need to submit the following items:
- Transcripts: Official, final transcripts from high school and all colleges you have attended must be sent to the Office of Admissions. GED scores are also accepted. Complete this Transcripts Release Form and give it to the Registrar at your current college. If you have been out of school more than five years, you must still submit transcripts, but work experience and other accomplishments will be given considerable weight. Please submit information about these experiences in writing.
- Standardized Test Scores: Manchester accepts both SAT and ACT scores. You must request that official score reports be sent to Manchester. You do not need to submit test scores if you are 25 years of age or older.
- Academic Reference Form: Give the Academic Reference Form to a college professor or academic advisor. Ask him or her to complete and send it to the Manchester University Office of Admissions.
- Transfer Student Information (TSI) Form: Submit the Transfer Student Information Form (TSI) form completed by the registrar at the last college/university you attended.
Send it in! All materials should be sent to the Office of Admissions, Manchester University, 604 E. College Ave., P.O. Box 365, North Manchester, IN 46962-0365. Fax 260-982-5239.
