Traditional transfer students (students out of high school for less than four years at the time of enrollment) who have completed the equivalent of 12 semester hours of college-level coursework, and have a 2.0 cumulative college GPA from a regionally-accredited college or university are normally admitted in good academic standing.  High school credentials may also be reviewed.
