Transfer Student

Discover what The Ashland Promise means for you

The Ashland Promise expresses for Transfer students in the following ways:

1. We teach you how to think, not what to think.
2. As a transfer student, you will be coming to us with some transferrable credits. We will advocate for you to make sure every single applicable credit transfers, and then, with the help of faculty and staff, we will design a fully personalized and customized educational success plan to accomplish your degree on your timeline. This is our daily commitment to Accent on the Individual.
3. Ashland University is regularly ranked nationally among the best private universities in the Midwest—as well as one of the most affordable, a distinction that we promise will continue into the future.
4. You will have personalized mentorship throughout your educational journey through our commitment to Accent on the Individual. Our faculty and staff promise to guide you toward reaching your goals and help you become the person you were meant to be.
5. We promise a welcoming, open and diverse campus community, guided by our Christian heritage and a culture of dignity and respect. 
6. You will have at least one relevant internship or applied learning experience during your time at Ashland University.
7. You will have the opportunity to learn to lead through one or more of these means: joining clubs and organizations, study abroad, mission trips, internships or applied learning opportunities.
8. Ashland University guarantees you will have a job or acceptance into graduate school within one year of graduation. If you are not employed or admitted to graduate school within one year of graduating, or if you ever need additional assistance on your career or educational journey, Ashland University will provide access to career and life calling services for life.

Transfer students typically come to Ashland University for a specific reason. You experienced college life at a different school, and for whatever reason, that experience lacked what you needed. No matter what that experience was, it can guide you into the university experience that will resonate with you the best. The Ashland Promise provides a clear path to graduation and ensures that you’ll be an Ashland Eagle forever.

The Ashland Promise positions you to take that next step with confidence. We’ll work with you from day one to make sure all your credits transfer, and from there, together we will develop a personalized plan for your education. We will also make sure your time at Ashland University is affordable, connect you with life-changing mentors, and immerse you in a diverse campus community filled with transformative experiences that’s meant to teach you how to think, not what to think. Your next step here at Ashland University will help stretch, grow and guide you to whatever your amazing future looks like after your time at Ashland.

Being an Ashland Eagle means a commitment well beyond graduation. We are deeply invested in your success beyond your time here and will make sure you have a job or acceptance to graduate school within one year of graduation. From your university application to job acceptance and beyond, you’re an Eagle for life, and that’s a bond that cannot be broken.
