Admission Requirements for Transfer Students:

For admission as a sophomore, junior, or senior transfer, a student must have at least 24 transferable credit hours. Transfers with a 2.25 overall GPA are, generally, admissible to the university. Students with at least a 2.00 but less than a 2.25 overall GPA are encouraged to apply and may be considered for admission on a space available basis.

Application fees

  • $35.00 for applicants with domestic credentials only.
  • $50.00 for students applying after the application deadline (see below).
  • $50.00 for applicants with foreign academic credentials or applicants who currently hold a non-immigrant visa status in the U.S.
  • Additional information for transfer students

Transfer Credit Information:

No limit is placed on the total amount of course credit accepted in transfer from either junior or senior institutions. However, use of transfer credit toward a degree may be limited by the student's academic department.


Credit in which a grade of D was earned is not transferable and will not count toward a degree.

Grades earned in every course attempted are part of the gpa calculation with the exception of 10 hours of repeated courses. In the case of repeated courses, the second course attempt is counted and the first forgiven even if the second attempt is a withdrawal. Subsequent attempts after the second time a course is taken are counted toward the grade point average calculated for transfer admission.

Approximate Cost/Range for One Academic Year
(15 hours per semester Fall and Spring):

Tuition and Fees $7,780
Room and Board $2340-4910, depending on residence hall
