Admission Requirements

If you have attended college after graduating from high school and have earned 24 college-level, transferable credit hours, you're a transfer student! If you haven't earned 24 credit hours, you will be evaluated on a combination of freshman and transfer requirements.

Transfer Students

  • 2.00+ GPA in your last full-time semester (or last 12 hrs for part-time students)


  • 2.00+ overall GPA, including all previous coursework at all institutions (excepting development courses)

  • What if I don't meet the minimum requirements for admission?

    If you do not meet these requirements, a more holistic review will be used to evaluate your application for admission. The Admissions Review Committee meets once a week to discuss these on a case-by-case basis. If you would like to submit additional documents for review, such as a letter of appeal and/or a letter of recommendation from an academic advisor or professor, please email

    The review process is a non-competitive, holistic, and individualized process where the Review Committee may consider some or all of the following: academic rigor of courses, core course GPA and grade trends; as well as non-cognitive elements such as an applicant’s concept of self, ability to deal with adversity, long-range goals, community involvement, special interests or abilities, leadership, and support structures. Requests for review may be sent to
