Transferring to a new school can confusing at times, but I’ve compiled the top 5 questions I get asked to give you the answers in one spot!

How do my credits transfer?

The best way to start determining which credits may transfer is to fill out our quick form to get your Preliminary Credit Evaluation.  You can also check out Transferology, a national network to help explore course equivalencies, program requirements, and applicability of coursework when transferring between schools. Learn more about how your credits will transfer.

As a transfer student, am I required to live on campus?

No.  Even though transfer students are not required to live on campus, many choose to do so because it’s convenient, affordable, and provides many opportunities to get involved and meet new people.

What scholarship opportunities are available for me as a transfer student?

There are several automatic scholarships based on your application for admission.  If you don’t meet the automatic scholarship criteria, there are other scholarships available including department and major specific, talent and athletic, and many more!

What is the admission criteria?

  • Completion of a minimum of 24 academic semester credit hours or 36 academic quarter credit hours from a regionally accredited college or university. If you have completed fewer than 24 academic semester credit hours, you must provide both your college and high school official transcripts to determine admission eligibility. You must meet our freshman admission requirements to be eligible for admission.
  • A minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA in post-secondary credits earned or attempted.

How do I apply?

Applying is easy.  Fill out our online application, send us your official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions, and pay the $20 application fee.
