Admission of Transfer Students

The University welcomes the application of students with academic credit earned at other regionally accredited colleges and universities. Students are required to report all college-level credit attempted and/or completed, and are required to submit official transcripts of such work. The primary factor for consideration of admission of a transfer student is the student’s cumulative GPA. Other factors considered for admission include statement of support, or a personal interview. Applicants are advised to have at least a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or better for admission.

Applicants with fewer than 24 transferable hours of college credit must submit an official final high school transcript with graduation date and with the scores of any SAT or ACT exam(s) previously taken. Transfer applicants out of high school for more than two years, or are GED recipients, are not required to submit SAT or ACT exam scores and will not be considered for an academic scholarship. 

Official transcripts must be dated within one year prior to processing. Official transcripts must be sent directly from the sending institution electronically or mailed in a sealed envelope.

Applicants with credit earned at non-accredited institutions, such as trade, technical, and career schools, are advised that such credit is generally not transferable to the University. However, an official transcript of coursework is required for admission consideration. Transfer candidates can find the online application at
