Transylvania University is offering transfer assistance to students from Eastern Nazarene College, which announced this week it is closing. Transfer applications are open now for Transylvania’s fall term, which is scheduled to start Sept. 3.

“Transylvania’s strong academics are rooted in the liberal arts tradition, allowing us to provide the small classes, professor-student interaction and a caring campus community, similar to what students at Eastern Nazarene have received during their time there,” said Julie Sams, director of admissions. 

Students can apply for free online. Transcripts from Eastern Nazarene, final high school transcripts and a statement of good standing must be submitted with the application. A writing sample is optional. 

An NCAA Division III school, Transylvania has 26 intercollegiate athletics teams with a history of winning championships. Eastern Nazarene student-athletes with eligibility remaining may contact the athletics department for additional information regarding transfers. 

Academic scholarships to Transylvania are available for all transfer students. To be eligible for other forms of aid, students should make sure their FAFSA has been filed and Transylvania has been added (code 001987).

“We will provide transfer students assistance and will offer flexibility for transfer credits earned with a minimum grade of C-,” Sams said. “We will make every attempt to adapt credits earned to Transylvania’s curriculum.”

Transylvania University, located in the heart of downtown Lexington, Kentucky, is a top-ranked private liberal arts college featuring a community-driven, personalized approach to a liberal arts education through a wide variety of majors. Founded in 1780, it is the 16th oldest institution of higher learning in the country, with approximately 1,000 students.
