Who is a Transfer Student?

Transfer students have earned 12 or more transferable college-level credits at a regionally accredited institution the fall semester or later after high school graduation. College credits earned prior to high school graduation (dual-credit) and courses taken immediately following high school graduation during the summer do not count towards the 12 needed to classify a student as a transfer student.


Transfer Requirements:

Applicants who hold an associate’s degree from a regionally accredited community college OR have a combination of transferable hours and GPA outlined below are guaranteed admission. 

Guaranteed Admission:

Applicants that do not meet admission guarantee criteria above, but have at least a 2.00 cumulative GPA, will be evaluated under a competitive review process. Factors considered may include, but are not limited to, types of courses taken, rigor of curriculum, pattern of progress, and potential for success.

Students who are currently suspended from another college or university are not eligible for admission to West Texas A&M University.
