Review Admits by College and Major
Transfer admission decisions are made by each college and major and are competitive; thus, admission standards are not known until
the review for admission occurs. Preference is given to the applicant with the highest grade point ratio (GPR) and the most courses
completed in the Degree Track for the major designated on the application.

for the college of the major for which you are applying.
In the case a student is denied for the fall term, spring grades may then be used in the admissions decision if received by
June 1 and if space is still available in the intended major.
