Transfer Requirements

We strongly encourage you to apply six to nine months prior to the expected date of enrollment.

Transfer students are required to present one official transcript from each regionally accredited institution previously attended. These transcripts must be mailed to JSU directly from the institution, or placed in a sealed envelope from the institution. JSU accepts electronic transcripts sent through sending networks. If an email address is required to have the transcript sent, please use as the recipient address. If less than 24 semester hours are accepted, you must also fulfill all requirements listed under the Freshman Admissions section. 


  • Eligible to return academically to the last institution attended
  • Minimum cumulative grade-point average of 2.00* is required for admission (GPA used is that which is computed by JSU)
  • Students with less than 2.00 cumulative GPA may be considered for admission after a review by the Admissions Committee

*GPA will be computed from all transcripts received by the Admissions Office at the time of application.  In order for a review of the application to occur, all transcripts from previously attended colleges/universities must be in the Admissions Office.  Transfer students who are currently enrolled at an institution who also possess the required minimum GPA will be provisionally admitted until the final college transcript has been received by the Admissions Office.  Once the final transcript has been received, the GPA will be recalculated and must meet the required minimum for admission. Transfer credits are only accepted from regionally accredited colleges/universities.
