Transfer Process

Slippery Rock University's transfer admission process makes it easy to join the SRU family. Whether you're transferring from a community college or four-year institution, our university makes it easy to apply, enroll, and succeed. 

Looking to join Slippery Rock University? You've come to the right place. If you're an international student looking to study in the US, visit our international admissions page. Have you previously attended SRU and are looking to return to complete your degree? Check out the readmission page.

The first step towards transferring to SRU is submitting the following items:

  • Completed application
  • $30 non-refundable application fee
  • Official college transcripts from each institution attended (can be sent electronically to or through the mail to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions), including College in High School credits; if you withdrew from a previously attended institution before credits were earned, an official withdrawal notice from that institution may be required depending on length of stay in lieu of a transcript and can be sent to
  • Final high school transcript (only if you will have completed less than 30 credits by the time you begin at SRU)
  • Copy of valid RN license (RN to BSN applicants only)

If you're asked to submit your midterm grades, please use our Midterm Grade Request form or submit your institution's midterm grade report instead.

When to apply as a transfer student- If you're transferring for the summer or fall semester, you should apply ideally by the end of February, but we process applications through the start of the semester. If you're looking to start in the winter or spring, please apply by the end of September. Please be advised that admission to SRU is on a rolling basis, and our admissions team continues to review new applications after these recommended timelines. However, you should aim to complete the process as soon as possible to ensure the most seamless and stress-free transition.

We recommend you respond with the enrollment deposit within two weeks of your offer of admission.
