Apply as a first-year student if you are currently in high school (regardless of total college credits completed while in high school) or you have graduated from high school but haven’t enrolled at a college, university or any other school after high school. This includes early/middle college students who complete a high school diploma at the same time as an associate’s degree.
Apply as a transfer student if you have attended a postsecondary institution after graduating from high school (with the exception of attendance during the summer term immediately following graduation) OR if you have earned a bachelor’s degree at another college or university and are seeking to earn another bachelor’s degree or teaching certificate. Early/middle college or dual-enrolled students are considered first-year students.
We look forward to welcoming you to campus and answering your questions about life as a Spartan. The Office of Admissions offers visit options for prospective and admitted first-year students, as well as special programs for transfer students.
