Transfer Students Application & Requirements

Learners who have taken or enrolled in college courses after their high school graduation.

No, learners entering college directly after high school graduation are considered freshman applicants. Taking college courses post-high school graduation classifies a student as a transfer student.

Yes. TU must have an official copy of each transcript showing college credit to consider you for an admission decision. To be considered an official transcript, a transcript must be sent directly from the institution or through a secure transcript delivery service. Electronic transcripts can be sent to apply@utulsa.edu or by mail to Office of Admission, 800 S Tucker Drive, Tulsa, OK, 74114.

TU Admission conducts a complete or holistic application review when considering applicants for admission. Therefore, we do not have set GPA minimums. However, we recommend a college GPA of at least 2.75.

You should request that your official transcript(s) be sent to the TU Office of Admission by contacting the Office of the Registrar at all your previously attended institutions. Electronic transcripts are ideal but must be sent directly from the school to TU. Official electronic transcripts can be sent to apply@utulsa.edu or through an electronic delivery service. Transcripts that are delivered or mailed by the student (even in sealed envelopes) will not be considered official. Mailed transcripts can be sent to Office of Admission, 800 S Tucker Drive, Tulsa, OK 74104.

An official transcript must be sent directly to TU from the previously attended institution. It cannot be given to the student to pass along, even in a sealed envelope. Transcripts emailed from another institution’s registrar or submitted through an official transcript service (like Common App or Parchment) are considered official.

The TU application for admission opens in July for the upcoming Spring and Fall terms. For example, the Spring 2022 and Fall 2022 application opened in July 2022.

The Personal Statement is 2-3 paragraphs all about you. We recommend including your goals, academic background, and reasons for transferring. Be sure to proofread!
