A transfer applicant is a student who has graduated from high school and has been or is currently enrolled at an accredited college or university.
Undergraduate Admissions utilizes a holistic application review considering all parts of the transfer student’s academic record. All grades earned in transferable academic-level coursework from every regionally accredited college attended will be considered in determining admissibility. If you have earned 24 or less transferable college level hours, your application will be reviewed holistically based on your high school and transfer GPA, ACT/SAT scores, intended major, and other factors.
We are committed to reviewing all transfer applications for admission. Transfer applicants should have a minimum cumulative 2.0 grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) in transferable academic-level coursework. Students are encouraged to include personal statements and any other supporting documentation that will strengthen their application in addition to their academic coursework.
Special Academic Requirements
There is no minimum or maximum number of hours needed to apply as a transfer student. However, some majors have capacity limits that allow very few transfer admissions, even for well-qualified students.
For such majors, those academic colleges or departments may require greater than a 2.0 for acceptance into certain programs.
Additional course work and enhanced performance standards beyond what is required by other universities and colleges may be needed when applying to our competitive degree programs. This may include but not be limited to more advanced math and science requirements.
Before you apply, consider the special requirements by these colleges:
- Architecture and Design
- Haslam College of Business
- Education, Health, and Human Sciences
