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 HiSET) 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 the admission requirements for freshmen 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.
  4. Students who do not meet the above requirements will be reviewed by the Holistic 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 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.
