Transfer Admission Process
An application for admission as a transfer student will be considered complete and ready for review when the Office of Admissions has received the following:
- the completed application for admission
- official transcripts from each college or university attended
- If less than 12 earned transferrable hours please submit an official high school transcript reflecting graduation, or official proof of high school equivalency
- the $25 application processing fee
A complete application will be evaluated for admission. Students offered admission will be provided with a comprehensive transfer articulation review.
*Note: Due to the high volume of requests, we are unable to offer a comprehensive transfer articulation review prior to an admission decision. You may use the TransferWorks tool to get an unofficial review of how your courses may transfer.
Request that official copies (sealed, unopened version) of your high school and college transcripts be sent directly to:
The Office of Undergraduate Admissions

Forward Dual-Enrollment College Transcript / Advanced Placement or other collegiate results
If you have completed college-level courses as a dual-enrollment student while in high school or through the Advanced Placement Program or other collegiate services, you must request an official transcript be forwarded to the Office of Admissions. It is important to record this credit to avoid duplication at ETSU.
