Transfer Student Admissions

You are here

Delaware State University understands the unique needs of undergraduate transfer students. They have busy schedules and need to make quick decisions-- the admissions process needs to be clear and simple and a designated Transfer Coordinator is needed to ease the process.

Application Procedures and Policies 

Applicants who have previously attended other institutions of higher education will be considered for admission at the University.  

Application Procedures

The following materials are needed from Transfer Students in order to be considered for DSU admission:

  • A completed application and non-refundable application fee of $35.00;
  • An official final high school transcript;
  • Official transcripts from all institutions of higher education attended; and
  • SAT or ACT test scores if  not transferring in 12 credit hours or more at a GPA of 2.0 or better

Application Guidelines

The following guidelines will help transfer students know whether they meet DSU’s admissions criteria. 

  • Applications from transfer students can be from two-year colleges, four-year colleges, and universities accredited by their respective regional association.
  • Official transcripts from all colleges or universities attended must be submitted for admission consideration.
  • The cumulative GPA must be 2.0 or above.
  • College course credits obtained within the last 10 years are not accepted automatically and will be at the discretion of the appropriate department.
  • Courses to be transferred must be equivalent to respective DSU courses.  Credits are evaluated according the specific academic program the student is applying to.
