A transferring student who has completed fewer than 24 hours must apply under the requirements for Freshman Admission 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 to UMSL 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.
