Freshmen Transfer Admissions

To be eligible for freshman transfer admission, students should:

  2. Meet regular freshmen admission criteria (SAT/ACT*, High School GPA and Required High School Curriculum)
  3. Hold a cumulative college GPA 2.0+ (On all transferable work attempted)
  4. Be eligible to return to their current school

*SAT/ACT scores taken after a student has been enrolled in college level credit in a college/university (after high school graduation) cannot be used for admission consideration. Old SAT scores will be converted to Redesigned SAT scores for consideration. SAT scores are only valid for five years after the test date.

Students are required to send official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions where they have attempted work. All transcripts must be received before an admissions file will be reviewed.

Transfer and spring/fall transient students who have taken remedial, learning support, and/or required high school curriculum make-up courses in college must:

  1. Exit those courses successfully
  2. Earn credit for Area A equivalent courses that correspond to the mandated remedial/learning support courses with a “C” or higher
  3. Accumulate 30 semester hours or 45 quarter hours beyond those courses
  4. Remedial, learning support, and required high school curriculum make-up courses do not count towards transfer hours or the transfer GPA. If you have these types of courses, you are no longer eligible for Freshman Transfer Acceptance.
