University Catalogue

TRANSFER STUDENTS FROM OTHER UNIVERSITIES AND COLLEGES

 

Eligibility

Students transferring to Southeastern from another university or college must be eligible to re-enter the college or university from which they are transferring, and they must meet the minimum scholastic standards set forth elsewhere in this Catalogue for Southeastern students. Students must have their official transcripts from all institutions previously attended sent directly to the Office of Admissions at Southeastern (if hand carried, the transcript must be in an officially sealed envelope from the issuing institution). If a student is a veteran and was suspended, the student must be counseled by a VA representative before certification for entitlement. All suspensions from another university will be counted in the total number of suspensions. In the absence of academic action from the last session of attendance at a previous college or university, the same standards for suspension and dismissal will be applied as for Southeastern students.

Entry options for Transfer Students with 18 or more transferrable hours that need one or more developmental courses:
Students having a 2.0 cumulative transferrable grade point average, but are required to take one or more developmental courses may be admitted through an alternative path after completing one of the following options:

  1. Continue enrollment at a prior institution or enroll in a community college to complete the developmental requirements prior to applying for admission as a transfer student to Southeastern.

  2. Take the Accuplacer exam and obtain a passing score in all developmental requirements if no attempts at those courses have been previously made.

 Note: Transfer students with 18 or more transferrable hours may provide official ACT scores to verify whether developmental requirements have been met.
