You are considered a transfer student if you have attempted college courses following high school graduation. (Note: This does not include Dual Enrolled or Early College students.)

If you are interested in one of our Extended Campuses or Online degrees, you will want to direct your search over to their respective section of the website.

Our Undergraduate Transfer Admissions Office will work with you throughout the application process. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 1-910-893-1290 or transfer@campbell.edu.

Campus Transfer Students

If you have attended one of Campbell University’s satellite campuses, you will need to complete an application to be considered for admission to Campbell’s main campus. All supplemental items should already be on file with our Registrar’s Office. You will not need to request these items to be sent again.

Teacher Certification-Only Candidates

Applicants are required to submit all supplemental items listed for transfer admission.

Requirements

Campbell University does not require a minimum number of hours in order to transfer. Transfer students must be in good academic and social standing at the school from which they are transferring. 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. Applicants from four-year institutions do not have a limit on the amount of hours that will transfer. These courses will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. In order to earn a bachelor’s degree from Campbell, a student must complete the final 32 hours at Campbell, and 12 of those hours must be upper level (300-400) courses.

Campus Transfer Requirements

  • Application
  • College transcript(s) from schools attended after your last semester of enrollment with Campbell

If it has been at least one year since an applicant’s high school graduation, we will not require the SAT or ACT score to be submitted. However, if the SAT/ACT is not submitted and the applicant is not transferring in credit that will be considered greater than or equal to our college algebra (Math 111) and or Academic Writing (ENGL101), the applicant will be required to complete our Math 110 and/or English 100 courses. 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.

In addition to the above requirements, transfer students must submit official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended. For transfer students, more consideration is given to college coursework than high school grades and SAT/ACT scores.

The Admissions Office does reserve the right to waive the SAT/ACT requirement for transfer students, which happens on a case-by-case basis. In order to waive the SAT/ACT requirement, a student must be at least one year removed from his/her high school graduation date.

Note: Waiving the SAT/ACT requirement may cause students to be automatically placed in developmental math and English courses. These developmental courses can only be bypassed if required SAT/ACT scores are submitted, or a student transfers in credit that is equal to or greater than our math and English requirements. SAT/ACT scores may also result in higher scholarship awards for transfers.
