Transfer Admissions Process

Asbury Transfer ShotWe're glad you are considering transferring to Asbury, where you will be joined by transfer students from across the nation and around the world. Fifty or more students transfer to Asbury each year, and we recognize the impact you will make on our campus! We are grateful for your experience and perspective!

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.

  1. Complete the applicationApply online or download a printable version of the application (PDF).

  2. 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 college credit hours 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.
  3. Christian Character Reference (Highly Recommended 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.

  4. This requirement is for CCCU students only. If you are a student currently attending a college within the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, please complete the Transfer Recommendation Form (PDF) – This form is required by CCCU students only and can be filled out before enrollment, not prior to applying to Asbury University. Please check to determine if the college you are attending is a part of the CCCU.

  • Transfer students with less than 30 credit hours of college completed should also have a minimum of a 2.5 cumulative GPA 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.

Academic scholarships are awarded to transfer students based on cumulative high school GPA, test scores, class rank and cumulative college GPA. Students who meet two of the three scholarship criteria are encouraged to submit their high school transcript and test scores for consideration.

Transcripts are reviewed for transfer credit information. If you would like to find out which credits will transfer, you may submit your transcript to the contact information below, even before you apply, or visit the site below for an estimate. Once the transcript evaluation is complete, you will receive an e-mailed preliminary report of your transfer credit. A maximum of 60 hours of credit can be transferred from a two-year college, and a maximum of 75 hours of credit can be transferred from a four-year college or university. Most credits from an accredited institution will transfer if they are applicable to a liberal arts program. Please note, courses of vocational or technical nature are not transferrable.
