Transfer Admissions

Application Materials

For transfer admission consideration, please submit:

  • Application
  • $35 application fee
  • official transcripts from all colleges you attended
  • If you've completed less than 12 college credits, an official high school transcript.
  • Admissions Timeline

    Transfer applicants are reviewed on a rolling basis until the major or semester reaches capacity. You're encouraged to apply early if you're considering a competitive major, as these programs fill up quickly and space is limited (Speech Pathology, Biology, Health Science majors). Nursing program deadlines - March 1 for the fall semester and November 15 for the spring semester.

    Admissions Criteria

    A college GPA of 2.5 (or higher) is preferred for most majors, but we will consider a minimum 2.0 GPA for potential admission. If you've earned less than 12 college credits, you'll be evaluated on both your high school and college transcripts and must meet the minimum admissions guidelines for first-year students.
