Transfer Visit


Interested in transferring to Butler University? Meet one-on-one on campus with an admission counselor to discuss applying and transferring credits.

Students can also opt to join a 60-90 minute walking tour of campus with one of our current students and learn about the student experience, our academic colleges, and more.
