Transfer Student Admissions

How To Apply

A transfer applicant at The University of Texas at Tyler is a student who has attended college since graduating from high school and has earned at least 30 college credits. Students who have earned less than 30 credits will be considered freshman transfers and will need to send in high school transcripts.

We are rolling admissions, which means we accept and review applications throughout the entire year. Transfer students applying for fall will automatically be reviewed for the transfer scholarships. Students should apply no later than May 1 to be considered. Freshman transfers are not eligible for admission-based scholarships. Requirements for these scholarships can be found here.

High school seniors concurrently enrolled in college-level (dual credit) coursework, should apply as freshmen, not transfer.
