You're on your way to transferring into the Cowboy family.
Who counts as a transfer student?
Find your admissions counselor to discuss anything regarding applications, official documents, fees and requests.
Or, see if they are coming to an admissions event near you.
What's required?You'll need these four things to be considered for admission:
- Completed Admission/Scholarship application
- $40 nonrefundable application fee
- Official transcript from each college or university you attended (request date must be less than three months old)
- Official high school transcript containing your class rank, GPA, ACT or SAT scores*,
and graduation date if you have less than 24 college-level credit hours
*Beginning in summer 2022, students have the option to apply to OSU without consideration of a test score. Students who select this option on the application will be considered for admission based on a full review of their high school transcript. Class rank is not required for test optional admission. This option also applies to home school, private, parochial or other non-public high schools which are not accredited by a recognized accrediting agency.
*OSU will accept the official superscore provided directly from ACT for both admission and scholarship consideration.
