Bridgewater State University welcomes approximately 1,450 transfer students each year — and we make every effort to streamline the process and get you settled in as a member of our community. At our dedicated Transfer Center, we’ll work with you to figure out how to transfer credits, which major to pursue and which courses to take next.
Transferring was a very easy process and when I got to Bridgewater, I loved it. All of the professors were really good and supportive. I’m coming back to get my master’s at Bridgewater because since day one everyone welcomed me.

Apply for Admission as a Transfer Student
You should apply as a transfer student if you have ever taken courses at another college or university after graduating from high school. Transfer students, like you, account for about half of all new students every year at BSU.
If you've successfully completed the steps outlined on your checklist and your materials are received prior to your appointment, you will receive your decision letter during your session. If admitted, you will receive your acceptance letter and transfer credit equivalency report during your selected session. You will also have your questions answered by one of our expert transfer representatives during your session.
