Admission Information for Prospective Students With Prior College Credit

UMSL values transfer students, defined as a student transferring from another college or university with at least 24 earned semester hours of college-level work.

A transferring student who has completed fewer than 24 hours must apply under the procedures for admission to the freshman class with the additional requirement that they submit official transcripts from all college-level courses attempted at previous institutions that document at least a 2.3 GPA.

Students transferring from other colleges and universities with at least 24 hours must submit the following information:

  • A completed online Undergraduate Application
  • A $35 non-refundable Application Fee ($40 for international students)
  • Official transcripts from all colleges/universities attended. Hand-carried credentials are not accepted.

All credentials submitted for admission become the property of the university.
