Frequently Asked Transfer Questions
What are the requirements for transferring credits?
Students applying for admission to Urbana University must be in good academic standing at the accredited college-level institution in which they most recently attended prior to application. Good academic standing generally implies a cumulative minimum GPA of 2.00. A student may challenge his/her admission status by appealing to the Academic Standards Committee. Only courses that have been completed with a “C” or better will be transferred into UU. Your Transfer Coordinator can complete an “unofficial” transcript evaluation if you have an official transcript at the time of your visit, but an “official” evaluation can only be completed by the Registrar’s Office after you’ve applied.
How many hours will transfer from another institution?
We accept as many semester hours as you have from a two-year institution. There is also no limit to the number of approved semester hours that will transfer from a four-year institution. However, bachelor’s degree students must complete at least 30 semester hours of UU coursework toward the total 126-semester hour degree requirement, in order to graduate from UU. In addition, all programs require a minimum number of hours in the major to be taken at Urbana.
