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
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
