We completely understand that one of the biggest questions you have is how your time at another institution will affect your time here. We try to make the process very simple—just send us a copy of your transcripts and we’ll conduct an evaluation. After it has been completed, we’ll send you a copy and a counselor will contact you to review the evaluation.
The first step is to fill out the application and essays. Then send us a copy of your college transcripts, as well as your high school transcripts and SAT or ACT Scores. Geneva’s admissions counselors are here to help you through the process, so if you have any questions about the process, don’t hesitate to contact them.
The most important step is to secure your place at Geneva by submitting your deposit. If you will be commuting, the deposit is $100. If you will be living on campus, it is $250. You can do this by calling your admissions counselor or submitting a deposit online. Go to www.geneva.edu/deposit.
To complete your Geneva College degree, it is required that you complete at least one-third of the core curriculum and one-third of the major requirements. To know exactly how your courses will transfer to Geneva, send your transcript (official or unofficial) to the Geneva College Admissions Office and an evaluation of your credits will be completed.

The Confidential Transfer Reference form is a quick way for us to check with the Student Life office at your institution to ensure that you are cleared to attend Geneva. We want to do everything we can to make your transition to Geneva easier, and this form helps us achieve that goal.
We would be happy to help you! Give your admissions counselor a call and he or she will help you pick classes. This process is easier if you have already had your transcripts evaluated, so send those in as soon as possible so you can receive the most accurate information.
