I have learned to value the time spent speaking to professors because they are such amazing people. You just never know how much you can learn or unlearn from them.

Transylvania is more than a university—it is a tight community where everyone can find their connection and belonging here. It has always been very supportive to me—letting me try all the options and choose the best one.

I Have Questions About…

We know you probably have a million questions about what to do now that you’re admitted to Transy. We’ve tried to answer many of those here:

When do I need to make my final college decision?
You can make your college decision and ultimately send in your enrollment deposit at anytime, but the earlier the better. The sooner you deposit, the better chance you’ll have at early class registration and early selection of residence halls. Don’t wait too long, as choices do become limited.

How do I submit the $350 deposit?
The $350 deposit reserves your space in our incoming class. To submit, you can send a check with the enclosed deposit card and reply envelope, or pay online by electronic check, Master Card, Discover or American Express.
Select ‹Kentucky›, ‹Transylvania University› and ‹Enrollment Deposit.› No login or password is required.
You will need your name, your Account Holder ID# provided in the admissions letter and the last four digits of your SSN.

When will I know my out‑of‑pocket cost to attend Transylvania University?
Our financial aid office will begin sending financial aid packages during the second semester of your senior year. From that document, you will see the financial aid you’ve qualified for, additional financial resources and your out-of-pocket costs.

Are there other forms I need to fill out?
There are a handful of documents you will complete over the summer to help us prepare for your arrival in August. Once you submit your deposit, we’ll direct you to more information on our website.

How/when can I visit the campus?
We will continue to offer both in-person and virtual options for campus visits. You can always check our Visit Options for different opportunities.

How are you handling COVID-19 on campus?
Transy has developed a thorough plan to keep our community as safe as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. Read our Healthy at Transy guidelines to learn about the protocols we have in place for housing, dining, cleaning and more.
