Transfer Information

What are your admission requirements for transfer students?

Beginning Fall 2010 our transfer requirements will be changing.? Please contact the specific department you are interested in. ?If you would like general information, please contact the Academic and Student Affairs Office, (970) 491-6220 or e-mail:

What credits will you accept from my previous school?

The Office of Admissions will review your transcript. Only courses with a grade of C or better may be transferred. Course equivalency between schools in Colorado has been established. Courses not accepted for transfer, due to the level at which they are taught, can be reviewed by the appropriate department to make a recommendation for acceptance.

How do I register for my first semester?

Students interested in transferring should establish contact with the department they are interested in joining as early as possible. Indeed, many students establish this contact as much as a year before transferring. Students are then encouraged to visit Colorado State sometime during the semester preceding the transfer. During the spring semester and summer we offer visit days for transfer students, called Next Step. Registration is possible at that time. Advising can also be arranged on an individual basis. Transfer students are strongly advised to register well in advance of the beginning of the first semester.

Can I qualify for scholarship consideration in the first semester at Colorado State?

Students who come from a strong program, and have done well at the previous school are encouraged to apply for an annual scholarship. The online scholarship application should be completed during the month of February via Ramweb.

Students who are transferring from an engineering program at another university should have at least a 3.0 GPA. Students transferring from a Junior College or Community College should have a GPA of at least 3.7. Read more about undergraduate scholarships.
