Ivy League Schools That Accept Community College Transfer Students

While attending community college, it is important to continuously consider which university to transfer to. Are you thinking of transferring to an Ivy League university, but not quite sure if it's possible? Or have you never even considered the possibility? Many community college students overlook this option, so it is helpful to know that you can transfer from community college to Ivy League universities. In fact, hundreds of students succeed in transferring every year.

You might be wondering, which Ivy League schools accept community college transfer students? First, let's look at which universities are considered Ivy League universities. In total, there are eight universities that make up the Ivy League. They include the following:

  1. Harvard University
  2. Cornell University
  3. Yale University
  4. Brown University
  5. Dartmouth University
  6. Princeton University
  7. Columbia University
  8. University of Pennsylvania

These are considered to be some of the very best universities to transfer to. You'll also be happy to know that almost all Ivy League universities accept community college transfer students. That means you can transfer from community college to Harvard, Cornell, Upenn, or any of the other 4 Ivy League schools that accept transfer students from community college. If you haven't already noticed, the Ivy League universities listed above in bold are the ones that accept transfer students from community college and other universities. There is one exception: Princeton University is the only Ivy League school that does not accept transfer students.

Interesting Facts About Ivy League Admissions For Transfer Students

In case you didn't know, Cornell University accepts a lot of community college transfer students! That's why when you hear about students transferring from community college to Ivy League, it is more likely that they transfered to Cornell than anywhere else because of the high transfer rate in comparison to the other Ivy League universities.

In addition, some other top universities that are not considered Ivy League but are still very prestigious institutions are New York University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Southern California, Rice University, Georgetown University and University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. All of these prestigious universities, in addition to the Ivy League universities, accept transfer students from community college as well as students transferring from other 4 year colleges. Click Here For Our Complete Guide For Transferring.
