Transfer Admission

The following information is for students who have previously attended a post-secondary institution.


Complete and submit a free, on-line application or submit a paper copy. Students are encouraged to complete the transfer application for admission any time prior to the semester in which they play to enroll.

You will also need to complete the following:

1.   Send official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions you have attended

2.   Send an official high school or GED transcript along with your ACT or SAT test records.

If you have been out of high school for longer than five years, you will not need to submit this information.

To be considered for admission as a transfer student, a student must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 for post secondary course work.

Meet Your Admission Counselor

Admission counselors are always available to help, whether its planning your individual campus visit or answering any question you may have. Find your counselor and begin talking with them.

Visit Campus

Visiting a college campus is often times the best way to determine if a school is the right fit. We recommend students and families visiting campus as early as they like but especially during the junior and senior years. Register to attend a Preview Day or contact your admission counselor to set up an individual visit.
