Transfer Process

Slippery Rock University's transfer admission process makes it easy to apply to and 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. We provide resources for transfer students looking to attend classes on our Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania campus as well as for those interested in our online undergraduate programs.

One of the many benefits that transfer students experience at SRU is the flexibility of credit evaluation. Our diligent transfer counselors work with you to help make the most out of your previously completed coursework to ensure the best transferability toward degree completion. We also allow for advising and class registration concurrently with current students.

Applying as a Transfer Student

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 (payable online via TouchNet)
  • Official college transcripts from each institution attended (can be sent electronically to transferadmissions@sru.edu or through the mail to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions)
  • 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.

If you're transferring for the summer or fall semester, you should apply by the end of February. 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.
