If you’re transferring from another school, you’ll be evaluated for admission based on your previous course work, grades, activities and involvement, and an optional personal statement. We don’t have minimum requirements for grades or test scores. Instead, we’re interested in your academic and life experiences. Transfer students in particular often demonstrate professionalism, maturity, and self-awareness—qualities that enhance our community and elevate the classroom experience for all students.

High school diploma

Letter of recommendation (optional)

A letter of recommendation is optional but is a good way for us to learn more about you. You can submit more than one, but the number of letters doesn’t factor into our decision-making process. Instead, we look at what people say about you and your ability to be successful in college.

Note: If you’re applying to health sciences, we strongly encourage a letter of recommendation, especially one that speaks to your ability in the healthcare field.

Personal statement (optional)

Personal statements are also optional, but they’re a great way to tell your story first hand, and help us learn about your passions, interests, and goals. If you’re worried about your GPA or test scores, or have had a personal experience that impacted your academics, a personal statement can give us the bigger picture.
