Admission Requirements for Transfer Students
Students who attended post-secondary institutions after graduating from high school are considered transfer students.
Credits to be awarded for transfer are determined at the time of admission to Frostburg. Only college level courses completed at a regionally accredited institution will transfer provided the courses are similar in nature, content and scope to courses taught at FSU.
Applicants who want to transfer to Frostburg
State University from a two-year or four-year institution will have
their academic records audited by our Transfer Coordinator in the Admissions
Office. The Coordinator will follow the guidelines listed below. If
you have questions about the evaluation of transferable credits or
the appeals process for this audit, please contact the Transfer Coordinator.
- Students with 24 or more earned transferable semester hours of credit
must have a 2.0 cumulative average on a 4.0 scale.
- If an applicant has attended more than one institution, the cumulative
GPA will be computed on grades received in courses from all institutions
- Students with fewer than 24 transferable credits must have a 2.5
minimum cumulative average and provide an official high school transcript
and SAT scores to the Admissions Office prior to admission.
- If you would have been admitted to the University as a high school
senior and have achieved a 2.0 cumulative grade point average at a
Maryland Community College, you are eligible for transfer regardless
of the number of credits you have earned.
- If you are admitted to degree candidacy while still
enrolled at another institution, you must maintain the required cumulative
point average and remain in good academic standing during your most
recent semester at that institution. Failure to meet this requirement
will result in cancellation of the University’s original offer
- You may not transfer more than 70 credits from a community or junior
college. These credits are normally limited to the first two years
at the undergraduate level and half the baccalaureate degree program
- You are limited to a maximum of 90 credits when transferring from
other four-year colleges and universities.
- Transfer students are required to complete at least half their academic
major requirements at Frostburg State. Additional requirements to complete
a degree are listed in the undergraduate catalog. http://www.frostburg.edu/ungrad/catalog.htm
- When a student transfers, grades are not recorded
on the FSU transcript for credits earned at other institutions and
those credits are not
computed into the student’s FSU grade point average.
- Students transferring from Maryland community colleges are encouraged
to utilize the ARTSYS website to determine the transferability of any
Maryland Community College course to FSU. http://artweb.usmd.edu/
- You will be given the option of satisfying the graduation requirements
which were in effect at Frostburg State during the time you were enrolled
as a first-year student at the sending institution. If you had more
than two sequential years of non-enrollment since enrolling in an institution
of higher education, you must meet the graduation requirements of the
Frostburg State University catalog in effect at the time you first
enroll at Frostburg State University.
