Apply as a Transfer

Applications for Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 are now being accepted for transfer students.

Nursing transfer applications will be accepted from September 1st, 2019 through February 1st, 2020 for the May 2021 Nursing Transfer Cohort.

Students planning to transfer 26 or more semester hours may be considered for admission if they have an overall grade point average of 3.0 and are in good academic standing in the college most recently attended. 

Only acceptable credits are counted in determining the class ranking when students transfer from an accredited college or university. (Students are classified as a sophomore if they have obtained at least 30 semester hours of credit; as juniors, 60 hours; as seniors, 90 hours.) 

Credits designated as transfer (100-level or above) with a grade of C (2.00) or higher, may be accepted from accredited community colleges and baccalaureate degree-granting institutions, as well as by professional accrediting agencies when appropriate. Academic credit for other courses and advanced placement may also be given with approval of the dean.

Students in Running Start: Use the first-time freshman application.  University of Portland will award you incoming credit for the classes you have passed, but only use the transfer application if you have already obtained a high school diploma prior to submitting an application.

If you have fewer than 26 semester hours of acceptable transfer credit, you are required to follow the same admissions procedure as entering freshmen.


Office of Admissions is open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
