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 transfer applicants have completed fewer than 24 college credits at the time of application, the high school record will be taken into consideration along with GPA for college course work.

If transfer applicants have completed more than 24 college credits at the time of application, a decision will be based on the 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 transfer applicants 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 transfer applicants 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.
