Admissions: Transfer: Transferring

Your goal is to earn a college degree that will give you more opportunities in this changing and challenging economy, a higher earning potential, and a better quality of life. You've already made progress by earning credits, and perhaps even your associate's degree. Now it's time complete your goal.

Transferring to GCU is a smart choice. GCU is transfer friendly and offers many market-driven majors, including business, criminal justice, health-related/nursing, and education. In addition, GCU offers a supportive learning environment with small class sizes and extensive student services.

As a transfer student, you can be accepted into the first-year, sophomore, or junior classes. You must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale from your former college. If you have fewer than 24 credits, you must fulfill all requirements for admission to the freshman class. Candidates for admission from regionally accredited two-year colleges are judged by the same criteria as applicants from four-year institutions.

Generally, you may transfer up to 90 credits from regionally accredited institutions with no more than 75 credits from two-year institutions. Georgian Court also has dual-degree agreements with many New Jersey community colleges that are designed to make the transfer process easier and help you transfer the maximum number of credits.
