Application Process

In order to complete the application process, students must submit the application, $30 non-refundable application fee, official college transcripts from each institution attended, and a final high school transcript (if you will have attempted less than 30 credits by the time you begin at SRU). Please have all official transcripts mailed to:

Office of Undergraduate Admissions

Recommended Timeline

Transferring in Summer/Fall 2015? Apply as soon as possible
Transferring in Spring? Apply by the end of September

Please note, we are on a rolling admission basis, and continue to review new applications after these recommended timelines. However, you should aim to complete the process as soon as possible.

Transfer Admissions Requirements

Students planning to transfer to SRU must have a minimum of a 2.0 cumulative GPA, 12 attempted college credits from all institutions attended, and must be in good academic standing. If you have attempted less than 12 credits, we may also consider high school performance in determining admission. Some academic majors have certain GPA requirements - these requirements are separate from gaining admission into SRU:

  • 3.0 GPA required for Exercise Science majors
  • 2.8 GPA required for Education majors
  • 2.75 GPA required for Athletic Training majors
  • 2.75 GPA* required for Safety Management majors
    *Effective immediately for new applicants for Summer/Fall 2015 forward
  • 2.5 GPA required for Sport Management majors

If you are asked to submit midterm grades to finalize your application file and your current institution does not issue them, please use this midterm grade request form.

AP, CLEP, Military Credits

These credits are evaluated through our Academic Records and Summer School Office. Please visit their website for policies on evaluating AP, CLEP, and military credits.
