Interested in transferring to NCF?

You should apply as a transfer if you have (or will be) enrolled in any college course work after the date of your high school graduation.

Welcome Transfer Students!

Each year, approximately 10-15 percent of New College’s enrollment is comprised of students who transferred here from other colleges and universities around the country.

They appreciate the fact that New College’s 7:1 student-to-faculty ratio allows for an intimate academic environment, encouraging intellectual freedom and a greater opportunity to be personally involved in designing their own education. Of course, our waterfront location and year-round warm temperatures are not bad enticements either.

For more information, please review New College’s transfer credit policy.
