Bring your credits!

It's easy to transfer to Frostburg State University.

You'll get a complete transfer credit evaluation when you're admitted, so you'll know exactly what courses will transfer to Frostburg before you pay your acceptance deposit.

If you have any questions about the transfer process, contact our FSU Admissions or one of our admissions counselors.

Transfer Admission Requirements

  • If you have 24 credits or more that transfer to FSU, you can be accepted with a 2.0 cumulative GPA.
  • If you have fewer than 24 credits, you need a 2.5 cumulative GPA to be accepted into FSU and must provide an official high school transcript and SAT/ACT scores.
  • If you’ve attended more than one institution, your cumulative GPA will be based on all institutions attended.

About Transfer Credits

  • You can transfer up to 70 credits from a community or junior college, or up to 90 credits if transferring from a four-year college or university.
  • When you transfer, grades earned at other institutions aren’t included in your Frostburg GPA. Your credits transfer, but your grades do not.
  • You’ll need to complete at least half of your academic major requirements at FSU to graduate from Frostburg.
