Information for Birmingham-Southern College Transfer Students

The Samford University community is saddened by news of the closure of Birmingham-Southern College. We deeply empathize with the leadership, trustees and entire Birmingham-Southern family in this incredibly difficult situation. Samford stands ready to assist the impacted students who seek to continue their academic pursuits. In partnership with Birmingham-Southern College and a cooperative teach out agreement, Samford University is offering the following for current BSC students:
  • A streamlined transfer application
    • Waived application fee
    • Waived letter of recommendation
    • Waived application and scholarship deadlines
  • Comparable financial aid package so that net tuition will be the same or less
  • Waiver of Samford’s residency requirement
  • Acceptance of ALL earned credit (including credit earned at BSC and credit BSC accepted as transfer from other institutions)
