Transfer Students


Transferring to Lewis & Clark College

Transfer students bring a welcome maturity and diversity to Lewis & Clark College. The approximately 60 new transfer students who enroll each year are a very important part of the College’s entering student group. Transfer admission is selective, and applicants are expected to present an academic history that demonstrates success in coursework similar to that offered within Lewis & Clark’s own traditional liberal arts and sciences curriculum.

The Frequently Asked Questions section will answer many of your questions about the transfer process. Please read it thoroughly. More information can be found in the current college catalog.

If you have further questions about the college or the transfer process, please contact our transfer counselor, Karin Dobbins Sherer, at

Transfer applicants are encouraged to visit the campus and schedule an interview with the transfer counselor. Individual interviews are available Monday through Friday throughout the year. Interview times may be limited, so please allow at least a week’s notice when making your appointment. Interviews are most valuable when students bring a copy of their college transcript(s) for an initial review of transfer credit. For more information about interviewing, please go to our Interview FAQ page. Campus visit arrangements can be made online through our visit page.
