How to Apply: Transfers with 30+ Hours

Ready to take the next step?

Texas State accepts over 5,000 transfer students a year. For students with more than 30 transferable hours, we make the admission process simple: have a minimum 2.25 GPA in all transferable coursework, be at least one semester out of high school, and be eligible to return to all previous institutions.

Keep in mind that test credits like AP, IB, and CLEP are not used for admission purposes.
