Transfer Admissions Requirements

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. In reviewing applications, the GC Office of Admissions uses a holistic admissions process. This process not only exams the students’ academic record but also takes into consideration the competencies and experiences (full spectrum) of an applicant. Therefore meeting the minimum admission requirement does not guarantee acceptance. All transfer applicants must:

  • Have earned 30 or more transferable semester credit hours (45 transferable quarter hours) from a regionally accredited college/university


  • Have a minimum cumulative 2.5 grade point average or higher in college level courses. (Excluding learning support, developmental and remedial courses) 


  • Meet the grade point average requirement established by academic programs that have a separate admissions process.
    • Generic Nursing Program (BSN) must have a minimum grade point average of 2.75 or higher to be considered for admission


  • The student must be in good academic standing and eligible to re-enroll with their last institution.


  • Submit original international transcripts for courses taken in other countries


  • Completed all college preparatory curriculums and learning support coursework required by any University System of Georgia (USG) institution.



  • Application with application fee ($35 Online) ($40 Paper) 
  •  Transcripts from all previously attended colleges, universities or technical institutions.  (Emailed, faxed or hand delivered open copies of transcripts, AP, CLEP & IB scores are considered unofficial)


Applicants with less than 30 semester hours of transferable college credits must meet the admission requirement for a freshman in addition to the transfer admission requirements. The applicant will need to submit the following:

  • Application with application fee ($35 Online) ($40 Paper) 
  •  Final high school transcript
  •  SAT or ACT scores
  •  Personal Essay
  •  Transcript from any/all colleges or universities attended (including technical institutions)



Non traditional freshman are students who have less than 30 transferable semester/quarter hours and has been out of high school at least five years and whose high school class graduated at least five years ago. The applicant must submit the following:

  • Accredited High School Diploma or GED
  • Compass Test Scores
  • or ACT/SAT score no older than 7 years
  • Transcripts from any college/university/technical institution previously attended.



Applications are reviewed once a file becomes complete meaning all required documentation has been received by the Georgia College Admissions Office.
