I'm a Transfer Student

We are glad that you are considering Campbell as your next step in the pursuit of a baccalaureate degree! As you begin this process, please note the following important information.

You are considered a transfer student if you have attempted college courses following high school graduation. Transfer students include second bachelor's, non-degree seeking (visiting), campus transfers, or returning students. Note: This does not include Dual Enrolled or Early College.

You can apply to Campbell online by completing the online application. Find out more information about our transfer admissions requirements.

If you have any questions about your application, please ask to speak with a Transfer Counselor in our Undergraduate Admissions Office. Contact information: 1-800-334-4111 extension 1299 or [email protected].

After completing the application, make sure you submit all of the required application materials. These include official transcripts from your high school and each college you have attended. Optional materials include personal essays and letters of recommendation.

For transfer students, more consideration is given to college coursework than high school grades. For admissions purposes, the Admissions Office requires a cumulative GPA of 2.5 on all college work. The Admissions Office reserves the right to require transfer applicants who have not taken the SAT to do so. The determination will be made on a case-by-case basis and at the discretion of the Admissions Office.

Campbell University does not require a minimum number of hours in order to transfer. An applicant is considered to be a transfer student if he/she has completed any number of college credit hours after their official high school graduation date. Transfer students must be in good academic and social standing at the school from which they are transferring.

Transfer applicants must request official transcripts from all schools previously attended. Campbell University accepts transfer credit from accredited junior and community colleges, as well as four-year institutions. Campbell University will accept semester hours only from all transfer work. Campbell University accepts course content only for "D" grades. Consequently, a student will not earn hours toward graduation for "D" work completed at another college or university.

A transfer student will be considered on the basis of their overall college record. Work attempted and/or completed at the two-year institutions may receive up to 64 hours of credit. Transfer students from four-year institutions will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis for credit. The final 32 hours of a degree must be taken at Campbell University.

The classification of a student depends upon the number of hours accepted in transfer. A student is classified as a senior with 98 semester hours transferred, a junior with 64 semester hours transferred, and a sophomore with 24 semester hours transferred.

As a transfer student, you may be eligible for our transfer merit scholarship. A student is not required to complete a separate application for this scholarship; this merit award is made automatically at the time a file is reviewed for an admission decision.
