Wellesley welcomes applications from talented students who have chosen to begin their higher education at two-year institutions. Above all, the College looks for women of intellectual promise who have demonstrated qualities of independence and character that will enable them to take full advantage of our curriculum. We seek qualified applicants from diverse backgrounds—students whose perspectives will contribute to our community and beyond. Wellesley believes that diversity is essential to our students’ educational experience and is committed to fostering an environment where all students have the potential to thrive.

Many transfer applicants will be considered traditional-aged transfer students. Transfer applicants who are U.S. veterans, mothers, or any women age 24 and older, can choose to participate in the Elisabeth Kaiser Davis Degree Program as a Davis Scholar.

This collaboration agreement serves as an outline of how most competitive community college transfer applicants at Wellesley may appear. Unlike an articulation agreement, eligibility criteria do not guarantee applicants for admission.
