    • *Note: Not required if you have completed more than 1 year of full-time college coursework or approximately 30 credit hours. 

Transfer Housing

Students can request housing as part of the application. A limited number of housing spaces are available for transfer students at each campus and priority goes to students who enroll first. Students applying as transfer students should begin exploring alternative housing options PRIOR to an offer of admission.

Transfer Credit Evaluation

If accepted to Fordham University, transfer applicants will receive a transfer credit evaluation which outlines what previous coursework is being considered for credit at Fordham University. Generally, Fordham University gives credit for courses of three credits or more, with a result of C or better and for which Fordham offers a course equivalent. Fordham University may transfer up to a maximum of 60 credits (approximately two years of study) from other institutions.
