Transfer Candidates

While students typically enter Seton Hall Prep in the ninth grade, we do occasionally accept outstanding transfer students into the tenth and eleventh grades. In order to be considered for admission as a transfer student, an applicant must:

  • Complete and the online Seton Hall Preparatory School Transfer Application for Admission.  The Transfer Application will be available for completion beginning March 1st, 2022.  Applications for candidates for transfer to Seton Hall Prep will close on May 20, 2022. 
  • At the conclusion of the third marking period, submit transcripts covering all previous high school coursework. In order to do this, complete the Transcript Release Form and forward it to the applicant's counselor at his current school so that he/she can submit the records to the Seton Hall Prep Admission Office.
  • Upon review of both application and grades, qualified applicants will be contacted for an interview with the Assistant Director of Admission, usually during the months of April and May.  Please note that not all applicants will be granted an interview.
  • All applicants for transfer are strongly encouraged to come for a full-day campus visit. To arrange your visit, please contact the Admission Office directly.
Please direct all transfer inquiries to Mr. Peter Durning '06, Assistant Director of Admission.  (973-325-7620)

Frequently Asked Questions

List of 5 items.

  • When will admission decisions be made?

    Decisions are typically made in early June.  Once the application window closes, interviews will be held throughout the month of May.  The Admission Committee will meet to make final decisions once all interviews have been completed.  
  • May candidates for transfer spend a day on campus?

    Yes! All transfer candidates are encouraged to spend a day on campus with a student in their respective grade.  Transfer candidates may request a specific host, or we will be happy to select a host based on his interests.  Transfer visits will begin on Tuesday, March 7th, and may be scheduled through the Freshman for a Day scheduling portal. 
  • Are financial aid and/or scholarship funds available for transfer students?

    Typically, all financial aid funds are distributed to current students before transfer decisions are made.  Therefore, financial aid is usually not available for transfer students during their first year at Seton Hall Prep.  However, all Seton Hall Prep students reapply for financial aid each year, so transfer students may apply for financial aid in the spring of their first year at The Prep.   Scholarships are not available for transfer students. 
  • Is an entrance examination required for transfer into Seton Hall Prep?

    While transfer students do not need to sit for any entrance examination in order to be accepted for admission to Seton Hall Prep, some students may need to sit for placement examinations in certain subject areas in order to finalize their schedules.
  • Is an interview required as part of the transfer application process?

    Yes, an interview is a required part of the application process.  However, not all candidates will be granted an interview.  Candidates will be selected for interviews based upon both their high school transcripts and their submitted application.
