Admission of Transfer Students

Transfer Students

Transfer Student is defined as any student who has attempted college credit after graduating from a regionally accredited high school and/or completing the GED. NOTE: Students who complete college credit while in high school are not considered a transfer.

Admission Requirements

  • Students must report all institutions where previously enrolled regardless of whether or not courses were completed/credit was earned.
  • Good academic standing at all prior institutions. If academic suspension is currently in effect admission to UNK is not possible.
    • Students on academic probation at a former institution are eligible for admission to UNK.
  •  Good financial standing. Any outstanding balance at a prior school will not allow for admission to UNK.
    • Active student loans are not the same as having an outstanding balance. Student loans do not disqualify students from being eligible for admission.
  • Cumulative 2.0 (C average) transfer GPA.
    • Students who have attended multiple institutions will have all GPAs combined and averaged.
