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.
