Many of Bucknell's incoming transfer students were originally enrolled at four-year colleges and universities, though some previously attended a two-year college. An associate degree is not required, but transfer candidates from two-year colleges are strongly encouraged to complete their two-year degree.

Students who apply and typically are admitted have an average GPA (grade point average) of 3.4 (A=4.0). To be competitive within the applicant pool, a GPA of at least 3.0 is expected.
