  • The Office of Admissions will continue to accept applications on a space available basis for the Fall 2014 semester.
  • The Office of Admissions is now accepting applications for the Spring 2015 semester.

To be considered for transfer admission, a student must meet each of the following qualifications: 

1. Have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale; for students who have attended more than one institution, a cumulative average from all previous college work attempted at regionally accredited community colleges and four-year institutions attended will be computed.

2. Have earned a minimum of 24 transferable semester hours of college-level credit from a regionally accredited community college or four-year college or university. Contractual admission is extended to individuals who have completed 12 semester hours of transferable coursework and earned a 2.5 minimum cumulative average.

Fall applicants receiving a contractual admission must earn 24 transferable credits by the completion of the previous spring term and at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA.

Spring applicants receiving a contractual admission must earn 24 transferable credits by the completion of the previous fall term and at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA.

3. Have left the last institution of attendance in good academic standing and with a clear disciplinary record. The University’s competitive admission policy for entering freshmen, however, will apply to transfer students who have completed fewer than 24 semester hours of transferable credit and earned a 2.0 GPA at another institution. Coursework completed at SU as a non-degree student will not contribute to the 2.0 GPA and 24 hour requirement. Students denied admission may not enroll as a non-degree student until admission requirements are satisfied. Transfer students from accredited colleges enrolled in transfer programs will receive credit for the college-level work they have completed, with few exceptions. College Level Examination Program (CLEP) credit will be evaluated based on individual scores. Evaluations of students’ previous coursework will be forwarded to them within several weeks of their admission. After being admitted to the University, students will receive an evaluation of transfer credit.

The Office of Admissions will respond on a rolling basis to transfer applicants, provided their files are complete and space is available.  The University reserves the right to close admissions when the projected enrollment is met.
