Admissions Requirements for Transfers

The Undergraduate Transfer Admissions Office will handle the applications and inquiries for all main campus transfers students, second bachelor’s degree seeking students, Special non-degree seeking students(visiting), campus transfers, and returning students. 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. This does not include Dual Enrolled or Early College students. Early College and Dual Enrolled students will apply as freshmen.

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 these hours must be upper level (300-400) courses.
