Transfer Students

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
  • Graduate from high school at least 12 months prior to the start of their first term at Georgia College
  • Have a minimum cumulative 2.5 grade point average or higher in college level courses. (Excluding learning support, developmental and remedial courses) 
  • Have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.75 or higher to be considered for admission to the Generic Nursing or Athletic Training programs. 
  • Meet the grade point average requirement established by academic programs that have a separate admissions process.
  • Be in good academic standing and eligible to re-enroll with their last institution.
  • Submit original international transcripts for courses taken in other countries
