Transferring to Longwood

Longwood University is dedicated to providing an exceptional experience for transfer students.  Each year, approximately 700 students apply to transfer for various in-state and out-of-state community colleges, junior colleges and 4-year institutions.  We aim to help these students find their niche and have a flawless transition to the Longwood community.

What are we looking for?

The Admissions Committee evaluates student's application packets with primary emphasis on core academic coursework.  Transfer students are expected to have a minimum cumulative 2.5 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) with at least a C in college-level English, math and science.

Applicants who have earned an Associate of Arts and/or Science degree from Maryland or Virginia Community College or Richard Bland College with at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA are guaranteed acceptance to Longwood University; however, some academic programs have additional admissions requirements. 

Please use the transfer information provided here in conjunction with the Longwood Catalog.  For your convenience, a concise list of appropriate courses can be found in our Transfer Guide.

Transfer Days

During the year, the Admissions Office will provide transfer information sessions and tours to help familiarize students with Longwood and the transfer process.  Be sure to schedule your visit to campus online.  If you would like to meet with a transfer counselor during your visit, please email Ashley Woodard, Sr. Assistant Director of Admissions, at woodardad@longwood.edu at least one week prior to your scheduled visit.
