Transfer Students

Are you a transfer student?

A transfer student has successfully completed at least 36 quarter hour (24 semester) graded, transferable credits from one or more regionally accredited colleges and universities. Please see the Transfer Student Checklist below, and visit the Transfer Student Admissions Requirements for information on applying to OSU as a transfer student.


If you are a high school graduate or GED holder with fewer than 36 quarter/24 semester college credits, you will be considered a first-year student. Visit the First-Year Student Admissions Requirements for information on applying to OSU as a first-year student.
