Students in the Student Union

You're on your way to transferring into the Cowboy family.

The first step is completing the online application — which covers you for admission to the university and all university-sponsored scholarships.

Who counts as a transfer student?

You should apply as a transfer student if you have attempted a minimum of 7 semester hours of college-level credit after graduation from high school. If you have attempted less than 7 hours, see the freshman admission requirements.



What's required?You'll need these four things to be considered for admission:

  1. Completed Admission/Scholarship application
  2. $40 nonrefundable application fee
  3. Official transcript from each college or university you attended (request date must be less than three months old)
  4. 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

Transfer admission requirements

Credit Hours Attempted* Admission Requirements
7-23 credit hours Freshman admission requirements and 2.25 GPA
24-59 credit hours 2.25 GPA
More than 60 hours or associate degree 2.0 GPA

* excluding incomplete, passing grades (ex: "P" or "S"), or remedial/developmental, repeated/forgiven credit and activity courses.
