There are distinct benefits to being a transfer student — you’ve got some college experience under your belt and so are likely have a clear sense of what you want out of your college experience, both academically and in terms of campus culture.
Whether you’re applying while currently enrolled at another college, or you’re hoping to return to college after some time away, you have determined that Johnson’s small classes, dedicated faculty, unique opportunities for undergraduate research, beautiful setting and close, supportive community of students are a good fit for your personality and goals.
You know what you’re looking for in a college; here’s what we look for in our students:
Your previous college work will provide a good indicator of your preparation for Johnson State. We require that you have at least a 2.0 GPA in your college work to be considered for admission. Additionally, we look at:
- Letters of recommendation
- Personal essay
These are the specifics about YOU that transcripts alone don’t tell us about. These qualities tend to come across most clearly in your essay, your recommendations, and in the records of your extra-curricular activities.
- Engagement in your community
Interviews are not required for admission to Johnson State College, but if you plan to be on campus, it’s a great idea to set up a time to talk with an admissions counselor. Not only does this give us a chance to get to know you better, but it also gives you the opportunity to ask questions and get a better sense of if JSC is a good fit for you. Please call us at 800-635-2356 or 802-635-1219 or email JSCAdmissions@jsc.edu to schedule a time to meet.
