Undergraduate Admission - Transfer Students

To be considered for admission, transfer students must be eligible to return to the institution last attended. Applicants must submit official transcripts from all colleges and universities previously attended. Transfer students who have earned fewer than 30 semester hours of transferable credit must satisfy all requirements for admission as Entering Freshmen. Transfer students who have earned 30 or more semester hours of transferable credit (excluding non-traditional sources) must have a minimum transfer grade point average of 2.0 and have completed any learning support requirements and/or Required High School Curriculum deficiency requirements.

Transfer students must demonstrate proficiency in communication technology and information literacy. Competency must be demonstrated within one year of admission. Courses taken at previous institutions to satisfy deficiencies in CPC requirements will not transfer for credit in baccalaureate programs.

  • Admission on probation. A student on academic exclusion or suspension from another institution must sit out the mandatory exclusion period as set forth by CSU (see academic standing section) and meet transfer admission requirements to be considered for admission on academic probation (see Transfer Student section). To be eligible for continued enrollment, the student must attain a minimum grade point average of 2.0 or higher for the probation semester.
  • Provisional admission. When all required transcripts have not been received in the Admissions Office, provisional admission may be granted for one semester upon receipt of a transcript from the last institution attended. This transcript must show that the student is eligible to return to the last institution. Provisional admission is granted on a case-by-case basis. Not all transfer students are eligible for provisional admission. No evaluation of transfer credit will be completed until all official transcripts are received in the Admissions Office. Provisional admission may affect Financial Aid. Check with the Financial Aid Office to determine how this affects your individual student aid.
