Transfer Admission Process

Transfer students are considered for rolling admission—there’s no deadline to apply and you can be considered for Fall, Winter, or Summer admission for most of Detroit Mercy’s undergraduate programs.  We do recommend applying at least one month prior to your desired start date for scholarship opportunities.  The application fee is waived for all transfer students!
