Transfer Student Application Process

Bishop Blanchet accepts applications from transfer students at any time during the year. Transfer students typically enroll at the beginning of the Fall semester, though we do accept students at the beginning of our second semester, in late January, as well.

We have transfer students joining our community from around the Puget Sound region. 

Transfer students do not need to take the placement exam to be considered for admission. Please complete the application and submit the Confidential School Report/Transcript Request Form and the Confidential Teacher Evaluation Form to the applicant's present school. The transfer application is considered complete when we have received the application and the recommendation and transcript from the applicant's school. Please email our Director of Admissions, Mike Pierce, at, with questions.
