Internal Transfer Process for Fordham College at Lincoln Center Students

Basic Information

Students are welcome to apply as internal transfer student to FCLC from FCRH, GSB or PCS. Evaluation and acceptance of courses toward the requirements of the college and major are contingent upon the approval of the transfer dean and the department chairperson. All graded coursework will remain calculated into the student’s grade point average and earned credits. All remaining core courses must meet the requirements of the new home college. Courses taken in the original college will count towards the residency requirement at FCLC.

The recommended internal transfer application deadline for Spring semester is November 1.

The recommended deadline for Fall semester is April 1.

*Please note that your admission to another college within the university does not guarantee a space in a residence hall. If you are interested in securing housing as a result of switching your campus location, please contact the Office of Residential Life.
