The Committee on Transfer Admission carefully reviews each application individually. We value the wide variety of experiences and rich backgrounds transfer students add to our community. If you can demonstrate a willingness to integrate within a multicultural environment and have a thirst to follow your academic interests in a more global context, then we would be proud to welcome you into our institution.
You can apply as a transfer student if you are a high school graduate (or equivalent) and have completed college credits.
General policy for Transfer Students
The American University of Rome determines the number of transfer credits to be accepted towards fulfilling requirements for a degree. Up to 50% of transfer credits can be applied toward a student’s major.
General guidelines are as follows:
- A minimum of 45 credits for a bachelor's degree must be earned at AUR. For an associate degree, a minimum of 30 credits must be earned at the University.
- At least 15 credits earned at AUR must be in major-specific upper-level courses.
- The final semester (Fall or Spring) must be completed in residence at AUR.
Transfer Application Deadlines
Transfer deadlines are in step with our general undergraduate admissions deadlines, which operate on a rolling basis with six distinct application rounds for the Fall semester and four for the Spring semester.
The earlier you apply, the earlier you receive an admissions decision. We encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible.
Application deadline information is available here.
