Transfer Student Information

An applicant to CSM is considered a transfer student if he or she has enrolled in coursework at another college after graduating from high school. The minimum admissions requirements for all transfer students are as follows:

  1. Students transferring from another college or university must have completed the same high school course requirements as entering freshmen. A transcript of the applicant's high school record is required. ACT or SAT test scores are not required if the student has completed a minimum of 30 credit hours of college credit.
  2. Applicants must present official college transcripts from all colleges attended. Applicants should have an overall 2.75 grade point average or better. Students presenting a lower GPA will be given careful consideration and acted on individually.
  3. An applicant who cannot re-enroll at the institution from which he or she wishes to transfer because of scholastic record or other reason will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
  4. Completed or "in progress" college courses (which meet CSM graduation requirements) are eligible for transfer credit if the grade earned is a "C" or better.

For more detailed information on the admissions requirements for transfer students, please contact the Undergraduate Admissions Office.
