Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer students are evaluated on the basis of ALL work attempted at accredited institutions. A cumulative grade point average (GPA) is computed based on all work attempted above the developmental level.

A minimum college GPA of 2.0 and more than 12 course credits is preferred for admission. Students transferring with less than 12 college-level credits need to submit a high school transcript and SAT scores along with their college transcripts when applying. An admissions decision will be based on all criteria.

Some majors require prerequisite courses or a minimum GPA prior to transferring. Applicants who meet the criteria for admission, but who cannot be accommodated in the major of choice, will be permitted to select another major or defer admission until a later date.

Please refer to the major curriculum worksheet for specific departmental notes regarding your major.
