Transfer Booklet CoverWelcome to Viterbo University 

Thank you for your interest in our Transfer Admission Process. At Viterbo, we stress the importance of our five core values; Contemplation, Hospitality, Integrity, Stewardship, and Service. During your experience, we will stand by these values to make your transition into our community a successful one.

In addition to our core values, we have four institutional priorities. Academic Distinction concentrates on our over 50 undergraduate majors and wonderful on-campus facilities. Catholic and Franciscan Identify focuses on the history of our university and welcoming students of all faiths. Affordability, Access, and Success relates to 97% of our students who receive financial aid. We also enjoy a 98% job placement rate for more than the past decade. Enrollment Growth increases opportunities for students and the community to experience a personalized, values-centered living, learning, and working environment.

We look forward to working with you and please seek us out to help with anything related to the admission process or our academic programs. Go V-Hawks!
