Transfer Students

If you’re already in college but are looking for a change, look no further. Georgia State University is a research institution located just steps away from numerous internship and career opportunities.

Admission to Georgia State is a selective process and meeting minimum admission requirements does not guarantee acceptance. All transfer applicants must:

  • Have a minimum cumulative 2.5 grade point average in college-level courses (excluding development/remedial courses) from all accredited institutions attended. (NOTE: Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 applicant minimum cumulative GPA requirement is 2.0.)
  • Have completed 30 transferable semester credit hours or 45 quarter hours of college-level academic coursework. Those students who have completed fewer than 30 semester hours or 45 quarter hours of college-level academic coursework attempted at one or more regionally accredited institutions must meet all freshmen admission requirements.
  • Be eligible to re-enroll at the last institution attended.
  • Have completed all college preparatory curriculum and learning support coursework required by any University System of Georgia (USG). Note: All attempted courses will be calculated when determining admission into Georgia State University.

  4. If you have not completed 30 transferable semester hours or 45 quarter hours of college-level academic coursework, you must submit an official high school transcript and electronic SAT and/or ACT test scores.
  5. Submit the $60 non-refundable application fee. This fee is valid for one full academic year (fall, spring, & summer).Notes: All deadlines are subject to change. The $60 application fee is non-refundable, and covers the three semesters included in one academic year (fall, spring, summer). If an applicant wishes to change their entry term within the academic year, they must complete a re-activation. If an applicant wishes to switch from a summer term to a fall term, however, he/she must submit a new application and fee for a brand new academic year.
