Transfer Students

Students who have already completed at least 28 semester credits or 42 quarter credits of continuous enrollment at regionally accredited colleges or universities will be considered for admission on the basis of that academic record (rather than the secondary school record) provided they have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. Students who have completed 27 or fewer semester or 42 quarter credits should apply as first-year applicants, but may be granted advanced credit for that work.

Transfer applicants should submit an application for admission and official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended, just as first-year students do. A short essay and recommendation letter are required. The transfer application deadline is August 1. Any applications submitted after this date will be considered by petition only.

Community (Junior) College Credit

A maximum of 70 semester credits or 106 quarter credits (earned with a grade of C or better) of approved community college credit may be transferred to The College of Idaho to be counted toward the 124 credits required for graduation (see senior residence requirement). Only lower-division credit will be allowed for community college work.

College Transcripts

Students are required to include in their applications for admission official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended. Official final college transcripts are required prior to attending classes. Financial assistance, both in the form of merit and need-based aid from the College, are dependent upon academic performance and dependent on the receipt of transcripts. Any discrepancies in final transcripts and those presented at the time of admission will be reviewed by the Vice President for Enrollment Management and could result in changes in financial assistance, and/or violations of the honor code.

Credits earned at regionally accredited colleges or universities will be evaluated by the Registrar's Office, and credit will be given in accordance with college policy only after a student has been accepted. In general, credit will be accepted for courses that are comparable to courses in the College curriculum.
