High Point University welcomes applications from students who are interested in transferring from both two and four year colleges and universities.
In order to be considered as a transfer student at High Point University, a minimum of 24 semester hours of transferable college-level credit must have been completed or be in the process of completion. Transfer students must be eligible to return to the previous institution attended. Admission for transfer students is competitive and is offered on a space available basis (priority consideration is given to freshmen). Admission to High Point University as a transfer student is based on a student’s high school record, SAT or ACT scores, final semester GPA, as well as the cumulative GPA. Once the student is admitted to the University, then a complete credit evaluation and degree audit will be completed.
If you are currently a high school senior and you have completed college-level coursework, you will be awarded the appropriate course credit provided you submit an official college transcript to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
