Admission Process

Applying to The University of Tulsa as a Transfer Student

Applicants for transfer admission are evaluated holistically by the transfer admission committee with the objective of admitting students who are prepared for academic success in The University of Tulsa’s rigorous curriculum. A student’s previous academic record is the most reliable predictor, so a college cumulative grade point average of 2.75 is recommended for best consideration. Consistency of grades and patterns in academic performance are taken into account.

As part of the evaluation process, educational and life experiences can be significant factors, as well as special circumstances that have affected academic performance in either a positive or negative way. The personal statement on the application and a personal interview with an admission counselor provide the opportunity to communicate this pertinent information.

A formal notification letter of the admission decision will be sent within a few weeks after all required documents have been received. Transcripts of admitted applicants will be evaluated course by course by undergraduate advisors in the college the student plans to enter. Applicants will be notified of the number of credits accepted in transfer and the number of hours remaining to complete their chosen degree plan.

Students are advised to make their final decision after receiving the credit evaluation of their transcripts and, if financial aid is necessary, after receiving their financial aid package. Applicants who accept an offer of admission should submit an “Intent to Enroll” form and a non-refundable $200 enrollment deposit. An individual enrollment appointment should then be scheduled with the college academic advisor.

Admitted applicants who have work in progress at another institution must submit the final official transcript as soon as the work has been completed.
