Transfer Students

Find your Fit!

Students transfer to Hood College for a variety of reasons - whether you're coming to us from a community college, going back to school after taking some time off, or you've simply realized that it's time for a change, we're happy to help you see if Hood is the right fit for you!

We make transferring easy!

We have dedicated transfer admission counselors who will assist you with the process. We help transfer students by getting to know you and your unique needs. We facilitate your transition by connecting you to various academic and student services. No matter what your reason for transferring to Hood may be, you can count on getting the help you need every step of the way, from scheduling a visit to completing your application.

Nearly 100 percent of students receive financial aid, and our Transfer Merit Scholarships make affording a Hood education a reality. Ask us about our articulation agreements with every community college in Maryland. We may also have scholarships specific to your community college.

Our transfer students do well at Hood--academically and socially. You'll be a welcomed member of our community, starting with advising and orientation programming specific to you.

We're committed to making your transition to Hood a successful one.

We also encourage transfer students interested in majoring in biology, biochemistry, chemistry, computer science, environmental science, or mathematics to apply for Hood’s National Science Foundation Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Program  (S-STEM) program which provides partial scholarships averaging $7500 for highly-talented transfer students.
