Transfer Students

You are considered a transfer student if you:

  • Have 24 or more college credit hours from a regionally accredited institution
  • Are eligible to return to the last institution you attended

If you have fewer than 24 college credit hours from a regionally accredited institution, then you are considered a freshman transfer student. Freshman transfer students must meet requirements under both transfer (outlined below) and freshman admissions programs.

Our department comprises three disciplines, Birth Through Kindergarten, Interpreting, Deaf Education, and Advocacy Services (IDEAS), and Special Education.

  • Birth Through Kindergarten – Professionals in this field provide service to young children and their families across diverse early childhood settings.
