Transfer Applicants

Dickinson State University considers an applicant’s overall academic performance when making an admission decision. An applicant’s cumulative college grade point average (GPA) and high school preparation (if applicable) are taken into consideration when evaluating an applicant.

  • If you have completed fewer than 24 transferrable college credits at the time of application, your high school record will be taken into consideration along with your GPA for college course work.
  • If you have completed more than 24 transferrable college credits at the time of application, a decision will be based on your cumulative GPA from all previously attended post-secondary institutions.
  • In most cases, it is recommended that all applicants present at least a 2.0 GPA in all college course work to be considered for admission. If you have credits from more than one college or university, all credits will be combined to determine the cumulative GPA for admission consideration. When reviewing applications, particular attention is paid to students’ most recent course work and the number of credits completed. If you have in-progress course work at the time of application, all course work must be completed with a 2.0 GPA or above. Students who have been suspended from other institutions will not be considered for admission to Dickinson State University until the suspension has been lifted by that institution or until one year has elapsed.
