Transfer students are an integral part of our community. As a transfer-friendly institution, we welcome applicants from two- or four-year colleges and universities. Transfers students are considered for Fall and Spring terms, except for those entering the School of Nursing and Health Professions, who are considered for the Fall term only.
We accept transfer applications year round. Transfer students may apply for the fall or spring term.
We look at each of our applicants as a whole person. To better understand who you are and the strengths you might bring to the Chaminade community, we look beyond transcripts, and consider personal qualities through recommendations, resumes, activities lists and your writings.
See the credit transfer guide for more information. Below are the general admission requirements.

Chaminade University Testing Policy
Chaminade University is excited to announce we have committed to a test blind policy for the 2020-2021 academic year. This means that we will not review standardized test scores (SAT or ACT) for general admission. At the end of this year, we will assess the policy with various all-college committees to determine whether it should be continued or if we will return to our previous policy.
We encourage you to apply as early as possible, as we admit students on a rolling admission basis for all programs except the B.S. in Nursing.
