Applicants who have earned fewer than 12 college level credits must also submit the documentation required of general freshmen applicants

Helpful information:

  • Applications for transfer admission will be reviewed anytime during the student’s college experience.
  • Applicants who are accepted at the University of Charleston while attending another institution must submit a final official transcript to the Office of Admissions before enrollment.
  • Transfer applicants who have been accepted for admission will have the opportunity to review the evaluation of their transcripts before an enrollment deposit is required.
  • Only courses earned from a regionally accredited college or university will be considered for transfer.
  • Only courses with earned grades of “C” or better will transfer unless a transfer agreement exists between the University of Charleston and another institution.
  • No grades are recorded for courses accepted in transfer. A student’s grade point average at the University of Charleston will be based only upon credits earned at the University of Charleston.
