Whether you’re coming from a community college, another four-year institution or schooling abroad, we hope to provide maximum value for previously earned credits. Our excellent advisement and support services make it easy to become a Laker!
If you have earned at least 12 credit hours at another college or university, following graduation from high school, we consider you a transfer student. If enrolling with 24 or fewer credits, or no more than two full-time semesters completed, you may apply as an undecided major. All other applicants need to select a major when applying.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. However, applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible in order to receive the fullest possible consideration.
