Transfer Student Requirements

Transfer Standards

Transfer students may apply up to a year in advance. Recommended application deadline is Dec. 1 for Spring semester and Aug. 1 for Fall semester.

Students must earn 24 or more semester hours (90 quarter hours) of college work with a cumulative 2.0 GPA for all hours attempted from all institutions attended, and be in good standing at the last college/university attended, for acceptance.

Students who have earned fewer than 24 semester hours (36 quarter hours) of college work must meet freshman admission standards in addition to the transfer requirements. This will require submission of high school transcripts and an ACT score if it has been taken within the last 5 years.

Application Checklist
  • Apply on line at wiu.edu/apply/
  • Pay $30 application fee (fee waivers are available - contact Admissions to see if you are eligible)
