Admission Standards & Specific GPA Requirements
Transfer Admissions Standards
We review each application individually. However, when considering an applicant for transfer admission, strong candidates for admission generally meet the following criteria:
- A sustained, rigorous academic curriculum with an overall "B" average
- A demonstrated interest in intended major by displaying academic success in the courses taken
If you have attended more than one regionally accredited college or university, the grade point average from all schools will be considered.
