Transfer Admissions Criteria

In addition to the below criteria, transfer applicants must be in good academic and financial standing for admissions consideration.

  • Transfer applicants who completed at least 12 college-level credits will be evaluated solely on the basis of your postsecondary credentials. Remedial and developmental courses are not normally considered college-level. Most programs require at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA) in all postsecondary coursework for admission.
    • A combined/cumulative GPA is calculated for students who have completed credits at multiple institutions.
    • The standard formula to calculate a cumulative GPA is [Total # of Quality Points divided by Total # of Attempted Credits].  Helpful GPA calculators can be found online by searching for the topic 'How to calculate a combined GPA' in a search engine such as Google, Yahoo, etc. 
  • Transfer applicants who completed fewer than 12 college-level credits will be evaluated using a combination of their official college transcript, high school records, and SAT/ACT scores.

Some majors have higher GPA or additional requirements for admission. Please visit the Undergraduate Programs website for more information about our majors and transfer program requirements.

Notification of Admissions Status

After the Office of Admissions begins application review, transfer applicants receive notification typically within three to four weeks after their application is complete. Notification may take longer during peak processing periods. Applicants can track their application status online at anytime.  Note - transfer applications observe a different processing schedule for spring and fall applications than first-time freshman applications.
