We strongly encourage interested transfer students to complete the Butler or Common Application at least two weeks prior to the start of the semester. Transfer students who are interested in applying for the fall entry term are encouraged to complete the application by June 1 to maximize their consideration for transfer academic scholarship awards (available to students majoring in the Colleges of Business, Communication, Education, and Liberal Arts & Sciences). The recommended transfer application deadline for spring is November 1 to maximize consideration for transfer academic scholarship awards.
