We’ve been sending Saints to Notre Dame for over 50 years.
It’s no secret that some students are interested in applying to the University of Notre Dame. Before we were a four-year institution, Notre Dame was a natural next stop for Holy Cross two-year graduates.
If transferring to Notre Dame is your goal, we’ll help you prepare a strong application: from enrolling you in the most rigorous and relevant courses (pay special attention to the required courses for your intended area of study), to affording you opportunities to become an engaged tri-campus community member.
Holy Cross curriculum and GPA are major evaluation factors in the transfer application process, as are demonstrated leadership in extracurricular organizations and athletics, and service experience. As a Saint, you’ll enjoy the added perk of being able to enroll in Notre Dame courses during your sophomore year and get involved on their campus.
Transfer admission to Notre Dame is competitive.
The admittance rate of transfer students from Holy Cross to Notre Dame is higher than the overall transfer admit rate at Notre Dame. We’re proud of this admission rate, as it reflects the historical and trusted relationship between our two institutions.
The average GPA of a Holy Cross student admitted as a transfer student is approximately 3.8. The median SAT test score is 1330. Typically, transfer students are entering the College of Arts and Letters to pursue a liberal arts degree.
