Transfer Students

Transfer Student Requirements

Transfer students must satisfy the HSSU cumulative GPA requirements for satisfactory academic progress placed on enrolled students with an equal number of credit hours. Admission to Harris-Stowe State University does not necessarily guarantee admission to a specific degree program. Students should refer to the appropriate sections of the university bulletin for program specific admission requirements. Minimum GPA for admission to Teacher Education is 2.5 and for nonteaching programs is 2.0.

Students transferring with an Associate of Arts Degree

The Associate of Arts degree is designated as the statewide general transfer degree. Students completing the A.A. degree consisting of a 42-semester-hour general education block of credit will have met the 42-semester-hour general education block for Harris-Stowe State University. Courses taken as part of an A.A. degree outside the general education block should be carefully chosen to ensure transferability to the program of study which the student intends to pursue at HSSU. All other associate degrees are evaluated on a course-by-course basis.

Transfer Prior to Degree or General Education Block Completion

Students who transfer without completing either an Associate of Arts degree or a 42-semester-hour general education block of credit will have their transcripts evaluated on a course-by-course basis. Lower-division credit hours completed beyond the A.A. degree will be evaluated for transfer on a course-by-course basis.
