Admission by Transfer

A transfer student is any undergraduate student with more than six attempted semester credit hours, excluding developmental/ remedial (0-level), pre-college work, or credit hours accumulated by concurrent enrollment.

  • Undergraduate Students Entering by Transfer from a State System Institution

    An Oklahoma State system student who wishes to transfer to OPSU may do so under the following conditions:

    1. If the student originally met both the high school curricular requirements and academic performance standards for the respective OPSU baccalaureate program, he/she must have a GPA high enough to meet OSRHE retention standards.
    2. If the student originally met the high school curricular requirements but not the academic performance standards of OPSU, he/she must have a GPA high enough to meet the OPSU retention standards, based on at least 24 attempted semester credit hours of regularly graded (“A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” “F”) college work.
    3. If the student originally met the academic performance standards but not the curricular requirements of OPSU, he/she must have a GPA high enough to meet the OPSU retention standards and must also complete the curricular requirements before transferring.
    4. If the student originally met neither the high school curricular requirements nor the academic performance standards of OPSU, he/she must have a GPA high enough to meet the OPSU retention standards based on at least 24 attempted semester credit hours of regularly graded (“A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” “F”) college work and must also complete the curricular requirements before transferring.
  • Students Entering by Transfer from an Out-of-State Institution

    A student who wishes to transfer from an out-of-state college or university to OPSU may do so by meeting the regular admission requirements of OPSU (including ACT/SAT testing and/or placement testing) and by submitting official transcripts from every college or university attended.

    • A. Transcripts of record from colleges or universities accredited by the North Central Association or other regional associations will be evaluated. Full value will be given for all work evaluated as transferable.

      1. Each non-resident applicant must be in good standing in the institution from which she/he plans to transfer.
      2. Each non-resident applicant must have made satisfactory progress (an average of “C” or better) in the institution from which he/she plans to transfer in order to be enrolled in good standing at OPSU.
    • B. Transcripts of record from institutions not accredited by a regional association may be accepted in transfer when appropriate to the student’s degree program and when OPSU has had an opportunity to validate the courses or programs.

      1. Each applicant must be in good standing in the institution from which she/he plans to transfer.
      2. Each applicant must have made satisfactory progress (an average grade of “C” or bet ter) in the institution from which he/she plans to transfer and will be required to validate the transferred credit by making satisfactory progress (an average of “C” or better) for at least one semester.
