Step 1: Online Application

Admission Process and Decisions
Once we have reviewed a transfer application, we will inform you whether your daughter will proceed to the next step, which includes an interview with our Admissions Director.  Decisions will be made on a rolling basis based on the applicant’s online application, academic transcript, teacher recommendation, standardized test scores, interview, and available space.

Financial Aid Policy for Transfer Students
Notre Dame does not offer any merit scholarships to transfer applicants nor will it consider transfer students for need-based financial aid for the first year of enrollment. Parents/guardians are responsible for the full tuition cost. A $1,000 nonrefundable deposit is due as part of the registration process.
