Transferring to Bushnell? It’s simple — our team will partner with you every step of the way.

At Bushnell, we make transferring seamless. We know you worked hard to earn your credits, and we think you should keep them.

When you apply and send in your transcripts, we’ll perform a transcript evaluation, free of charge, to show you how your previous coursework transfers. Shortly after completing your application, we’ll provide you with a summary of your evaluation, admission decision, and financial aid award (if applicable).

Am I a Transfer Student?

  • Have you graduated from high school?
  • Have you attended a college/university after high school graduation?

If you’ve answered yes to those two questions, you’re a transfer student.

College credit earned while in high school (e.g., Running Start, College in the High School, etc.) does not place you in the “transfer student” category.
