Lower Division Transfer 2016-2017 Catalog Year

Previous  |  Topic Menu  |  Next

Students who are lower division transfer applicants (those with at least 12 but fewer than 60 semester hours of transferable credit as determined by the Office of Admissions) must meet all requirements of incoming first-time-in-college applicants as described in the above section. These students must also have a minimum cumulative 2.0 grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) in all previous college work and be eligible to return as a degree-seeking student in good standing (with at least a 2.0 GPA) to the last institution attended. A limited number of lower level transfer students not meeting freshman admission criteria may be admitted if the student can reasonably be expected to complete satisfactory academic work.  Factors such as the number of post-secondary hours completed, grades obtained, coursework completed, and length of time since high school graduation are some of the factors that will be considered.
