To apply for admission, transfer students must submit the following documents to the Office of Admission. All application materials become the property of the University upon receipt.
1. Application for Admission and Application Fee
Complete application using the La Verne Application for Admission or the Common Application. Upon receipt of the completed and signed application form, personal statement, and the non-refundable $50 application fee, the Office of Admission will notify the applicant of any missing documents necessary to complete the application process.
2. Official transcripts
Applicants must have official transcripts sent to the Office of Admission from each college or university previously attended. All previous college work must be evaluated for transfer.
3. Letter of Recommendation
The letter of recommendation must come from an academic source at a current or past college you have attended and it must be sent directly to the University of La Verne.
Coursework will only be evaluated for meeting degree requirements once a student is accepted to La Verne. Prospective students are required to meet first with an admission representative prior to scheduling and appointment at the Transfer Center.
La Verne has articulation agreements with a number of junior colleges in California listing coursework that is transferable to La Verne. Transfer agreements can be viewed on the Transfer Credit and Articulation site (select Track I).
Students with fewer than 28 semester hours of academic credit are considered to be advanced freshman. These applicants will be evaluated on college work, high school transcripts, letters of recommendation, and SAT I or ACT scores, personal commitments, special talents, character, and school and community involvement.
