Transfer Admission Process
Asbury operates on a rolling admissions policy and applications for admission are accepted throughout the calendar year. While there are no specific application deadlines, we would encourage you to apply at the earliest possible date.
Transcripts will be automatically evaluated for preliminary transfer credit at the point of the admissions review. However, if you would like your transcript reviewed before this point, we will be happy to provide this service if you will contact our transfer counselor, Jackie Neal, directly. You may send your transcripts to her direct attention by mail, e-mail, or fax at the contact info below.
Once the transcript evaluation is complete, you will receive an e-mailed preliminary report of transfer credit. A maximum of 60 semester-hours of credit can be transferred from a two-year college and a maximum of 75 semester-hours of credit can be transferred from a four-year college or university.
If you have any questions regarding transfer credits, please contact the Admissions Office.

College and University Transcripts – Send an official transcript from each college and university you have attended. Transcripts should be sent directly from the institution to the Office of Admissions.
- Transfer students who have earned less than 30 semester hours of college credit are also required to submit an official high school transcript along with their SAT or ACT scores. The high school transcript should included courses taken, grades earned, class rank (if available), cumulative GPA and graduation date.
Christian Character Reference (Highly Recommenced for all students. Required for students who do not meet minimum admissions standards.)
The Christian Character Reference (Online Form or PDF) can be completed by anyone who can speak about your character and relationship with Jesus Christ, if you have one.
- Minimum of a 2.5 cumulative grade point average in 30 or more semester hours from an accredited college or university.
- Transfer students with less than 30 semester hours of college credit completed should also have minimum of a 2.5 cumulative grade point average in high school and a minimum SAT combined score of 1020 (Math and Critical Reading sections only) or an ACT composite score of 22.
Students who fall below one or more of these specific criteria can still be admitted on a conditional basis and are encouraged to apply.
