Transfer Admission

Finish Strong.

Your education is important, and Butler University might be the right place for you to finish your degree–even if you didn't start it here. 

How will you know if Butler is the right fit? There’s a phrase you’ll hear often around our campus: The Butler Way. It means we’re committed, we deny selfishness, we accept reality, and we seek improvement every day. These values resonate with a certain type of student—those who are more than just studious, but passionate about learning and life. They approach new challenges with enthusiasm, because they know they can achieve anything they set their minds to. And they don’t take the easy road because for them, the journey is the fun part.

Special note regarding transfer admission and the COVID-19 pandemic:

Butler University is taking special care in individually reviewing transcripts to ensure transfer students are not penalized by their inability to earn letter grades for academic classes during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The University will take into account the current institution’s spring 2020 term grading policy along with grades for the semester and performance in prior semesters.

Many colleges and universities are providing a Pass/No Pass or Credit/No Credit grading scheme for the winter, spring and summer terms in 2020—sometimes with no other grading alternatives for students. In light of this, Butler University has temporarily suspended its policy that limits transfer credit for coursework in which a letter grade is awarded. Courses taken with Pass/No Pass or Credit/No Credit grading in the winter, spring and summer terms of 2020 will be considered for transfer credit evaluation on a case-by-case basis.
