Colorado State University welcomed a record number of transfer students this year. In fact, 26% of our incoming fall class transferred to CSU from other institutions. Whether you are transferring from a two-year college, a four-year university, or returning to school after time away, our dedicated Transfer Student Center staff are able to help you plan a smooth transition.

How we approach transfer admission
CSU is recognized for groundbreaking research, dedication to our land grant mission, and our academic reputation. What we’re really proud of is our commitment to each student as a whole person.

Each year we search for students with diverse backgrounds, skills, and perspectives to challenge and support each other. And that doesn’t mean just glancing at your GPA. We look at each application fully. Our biggest goal is to ensure your academic success, and we do that by seeing your application as a window into your life. You are considered a transfer applicant if you have attended a regionally accredited college or university after high school graduation, no matter how many college credits you have earned.

Transfer evaluations
Your first resource to find out how your credits will transfer to CSU and how to meet program requirements is Transferology (transferology.com), a free self-service website. If your previous colleges or courses are not yet in Transferology, you can request an unofficial transfer evaluation by contacting the CSU Transfer Student Center.
You will receive an official transfer evaluation after you have been admitted. CSU awards credit for any college-level academic courses in which you’ve earned grades of “C-” or better.

Transfer support and programming
Colorado State doesn’t cut corners when it comes to student support. You will have access to resources throughout your transition to CSU—and after you graduate too.
