We are interested in transfer candidates who are prepared to thrive in the context of Cornell University and who are compelled by the work done in the College of Human Ecology.
Competitive transfer applicants will have earned a GPA of 3.5 or higher (As and Bs) in a curriculum parallel to that of current Human Ecology students. Courses in English composition, math, natural sciences, and the social sciences, along with foundation courses for the intended major are particularly important. Please carefully review our complete list of required preparatory courses (updated for the 2021 cycle).
The Admissions Committee closely considers the work, volunteer, and learning experiences in which transfer applicants have engaged, as well as a demonstrated and clearly articulated interest in Human Ecology majors. Strong writing skills and application essays are also critical. Refer to our transfer application tips for more information.
Those interested in Design and Environmental analysis, Fashion Design, and Fashion Design Management are required to submit a design supplement.
