Excel as a Transfer
Although you are not new to college, Truman's academic climate is quite different from other institutions. We will give your transfer student application the same holistic review as all other applicants. We have neither set minimum requirements for your transferable GPA, nor transferable credit hours. We have, however, found that transfer students who do the best at Truman often bring around 30 transferable credit hours and a transferable GPA at or above 3.25. Check out our prospective transfer page to learn about your benefits as an incoming transfer student.
Who is a Transfer Student?
Any student who has completed college credit after graduating from high school is considered a transfer student at Truman. Whether your credit was earned at an accredited community college or another four-year university, your application decision is based on a combination that includes:
- high school rank/grade point average*
- ACT/SAT test scores*
- cumulative grade point average for previous college credit
- strength of college curricula
*Transfer students who have completed more than 24 hours of post high school credit, at time of application, are not required to submit high school transcripts or test scores.
Are you a high school student who has earned transfer credit? You will be considered a first-time freshman student, regardless of the number of hours you bring to Truman.
