Admission as a Transfer Student


An applicant who has begun college elsewhere following high school graduation or the awarding of a high school equivalent diploma (GED or HSE) is a transfer student. If the student has completed less than twenty-four transferable semester hours of degree credit (college-level courses), the applicant will be evaluated using a combination of the admission requirements for freshmen and transfer applicants.
  1. Transfer applicants must meet the following academic standards based on all of their previous college-level coursework at all institutions. (1) Must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0; (2) Must have at least a 2.0 in their last full-time semester (or last 12 hours for part-time students).
  2. Transfer applicants having graduated from a Tennessee Board of Regents community college with an A.A. or A.S. degree in a university-parallel program will usually be eligible for admission.
  3. An applicant under disciplinary suspension or probation will not be considered for admission until a satisfactory statement has been furnished by the former college and approval given by the Admissions Review Committee.
  4. Students who do not meet the above requirements will be reviewed by the Admissions Review Committee. Students volunteering information regarding a handicapping condition will be assessed on an individual basis.
  5. Applicants whose native language is not English will be reviewed by the English Placement Committee. Such students may be required to take a placement test or submit test scores for the purpose of validating previous English study and/or placement in English courses, including English composition and English as a Second Language.
