Transfer Students

Undergraduate Admissions Requirements

Admission for international students is based on a review of the appropriate educational documents as well as proficiency in English as measured by the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Testing System (IELTS). TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) minimum scores are 79-80 for the Internet-based test, 213 for the computer-based test, and 550 for the paper-based test. IELTS (International English Language Testing System) minimum score is: 6.0. Upon acceptance, all new students are required to take the University placement test for reading, writing, and mathematics. The results of the test will determine if any English as a Second Language (ESL)-type courses and/or pre-college/ noncredit bearing courses are necessary. For testing dates and worldwide test sites, please contact: TOEFL/TSE Services: International English Language Testing System (IETS) at

Transfer: You may apply as a transfer student if, in addition to the equivalent of a U.S. high school diploma, you have completed college/university level courses either in the U.S. or another country.*

Second Degree: You have completed a degree program either in the U.S. or another country and possess the equivalent of a U.S. bachelor’s degree and are applying for a new undergraduate degree program.*

*Prospective transfer and second degree candidates must arrange to have a course-by-course evaluation of all college coursework completed outside the U.S. sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
