Undergraduate Admissions

Transfer Students Admissions Information

John Cabot University has a longstanding tradition of welcoming transfer students from the United States and the world. Whether you seek a vibrant international student community, a liberal arts environment with emphasis on classroom discussions and personal development, or the unparalleled experience of finishing your education in Rome, John Cabot University's undergraduate program will allow you to begin your international career while pursuing your American bachelor's degree.

Transfer Credit Evaluation

Receiving a transfer credit evaluation from John Cabot is easy. A preliminary evaluation is also available for students who are considering transferring.

To obtain a transfer credit evaluation, please complete the transfer credit evaluation form and include your transcripts. For preliminary evaluations, please upload unofficial transcripts and self-reported courses. If applicable, you are welcome to include AP (Advanced Placement) and/or IB (International Baccalaureate) test results. You may also send your documentation to [email protected] 

You should expect to receive an evaluation via email within two weeks. An official evaluation will be issued by John Cabot’s Registrar's office upon receipt of your official transcripts.


Transfer students are held to the same application requirements as other applicants, with the exception of one letter of recommendation, test scores, and high school transcripts. Should you have fewer than 45 US college/university credits, we do require official final high school transcripts and may request SAT or ACT scores. You may apply through either our online application or the Common Application.

Scholarships and Financial Aid

We use a generous scholarship evaluation designed to maximize awards for our transfer students. Please find a full list of available scholarships here; our Presidential Transfer Scholarship is reserved for transfer students only. For more information about financial aid, please contact [email protected] for more information.


Please contact [email protected] should you have any other questions about transferring to JCU.
