Transfer Admissions Requirements
More than 10,000 applications were received this past year for approximately 1,100 seats in the entering class of 2013. The most important factors in the admissions decision are the academic record (including courses taken, grades attained, and class standing) followed by SAT or ACT scores. We also consider the Guidance Counselor Evaluation, extracurricular activities and involvement, and a student's potential to contribute positively to the Campbell campus environment.
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 they have 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.
