If you have attended another institution and attempted at least 16 college level semester credits of normally transferrable (non-developmental) post-secondary course work, you will apply as a transfer student.

All application materials must be received or postmarked by the admissions deadline. Application materials received after the deadline will result in admissions consideration for the subsequent semester (i.e. an application completed on June 10 with final transcripts received July 1  would be considered for spring enrollment).

Fall semester application deadline: June 30
Spring semester application deadline: November 15
Summer session application deadline: March 30 

Transfer admission information:

  • Minimum of 16 transferable college level semester credits attempted with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0, some programs may require a higher GPA.

    Students who have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or less: Please note your application will require additional time for consideration. Your transcripts will need to be received at least one month prior to the application deadline.
  • Transfer applicants must supply official transcripts for all post-secondary institutions at which the student previously enrolled (even if no credit or clock hours were earned), and official transcripts for all post-secondary credits (including military, CLEP, and advanced placement).

    Metropolitan State University will retrieve your transcripts for you via e-Transcript. However, if there are holds on your record from the institution, you must first resolve those holds before your transcripts can be retrieved.
