Transfer Students

Switching schools in the middle of your college career can be a great option if you are coming to us from a community college after obtaining your associate degree, need a more affordable option, or just found your former university unfulfilling. Transfer students make up nearly half of our student body, so we’ve become experts at making sure you have a smooth transition. Our admissions team is always available for counseling, and with tools like the CUNY Transfer Explorer Tool at your fingertips, you can be on your way to mapping out your future here at Brooklyn College in no time.

The top reasons why you should apply to Brooklyn College are:

  • Transfer students make up 30% of our student body.
  • Prestigious (Affordable) Degrees + Prominent Professors: Our faculty (your future mentors) are the top scholars in their fields.
  • Great Salaries + Low (to No) Debt: We rank no. 9 among colleges nationwide for graduates who quickly climb the socioeconomic ladder, and our students complete their degrees with one-third the debt of the average American college student.
  • Small College Feel + Big City Options: Our close community of professors, staff, and counselors offer personal guidance while our internship programs allow real-life job exposure to almost any career path in New York City.
  • Flexibility + Choices: You have busy lives and lots of interests, so we offer hundreds of majors and minors with classes both online and in person at convenient times.
  • Accelerated Pre-Professional Programs: Our renowned pre-med, pre-law, and pre-engineering preparation is why many students pursue advanced degrees and get into the country’s top medical, law, and engineering schools.
