Campus Transfer FAQs

How much does it cost to apply to JWU?

There is no fee when applying to Johnson & Wales University.

What is the application deadline for admission?

Transfer students can apply anytime; however, students are encouraged to complete the application process as soon as possible before the semester start, preferably 30 days prior.

What are the criteria for transferring credits?

Transfer credit evaluations are based on previous college work as it relates to your intended field of study. Credit is usually granted for courses completed with a grade of “C” or better (with a numeric value of 2.00) at another accredited institution (recognized by the U.S. Department of Education). Grades of “pass” are also acceptable for transfer if credit was awarded (and a grade of “P” has the numeric value of 2.00 or greater). Credits earned in developmental and remedial courses or CEUs are nontransferable.

What financial information do I need to send?

Are you entering in any term other than September? If so, you must submit a financial aid transcript from every school you attended after high school — even if you did not receive aid at the other school(s). Contact the financial aid office at each school and request that they forward an official financial aid transcript to JWU’s Student Financial Services.
