For those who are transferring to Bucks from another institution.

1 Apply to Bucks. It's Free!

Apply Now

You must complete an application and obtain a student number as your first step.

2 Take Placement Tests or Submit Transcript(s)

Request Evaluation

If you have successfully completed college level coursework, you may be exempt from placement testing.  Send an official copy of any transcript(s) to the Admissions Office; placement testing waivers are applied as appropriate upon receipt of transcript.

To have your official transcript evaluated for potential transfer credit, and you did not request evaluation on your application, you can do so now.
