Transfer Students

Transferring to Lewis & Clark College

A liberal arts college with a public conscience and global reach, Lewis & Clark is the ideal place to explore the world and find your place in it. We welcome transfer students for the maturity and diversity they bring to the college—so much so that we purposefully reserve places in the incoming class for you. In fact, we welcome 50 to 60 transfers to our student body each year, with students coming from both two-year and other four-year colleges.

  • Campus Visit
    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. Campus visit arrangements can be made online through our visit page.

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