A satisfactory citizenship record, a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00 on a 4.00 scale on all college work attempted, and eligibility to re-enter the institution last attended are required for transfer admission. Transfer applicants who were not eligible for admission to Kentucky State University when they graduated from high school must present a minimum of 24 semester hours of college credit. All transfer students who have completed 24 or more semester hours of college work must have earned a cumulative GPA of 2.00.

Also a letter of good standing must be sent directly by the registrar of the college last attended (may be sent with official transcript).

Official college transcripts may be faxed directly to the Office of Admissions from the institution. The transfer student is not at liberty to disregard any part of his/her previous college or university records. Failure to report enrollment at another institution may result in dismissal and/or loss of credits earned at KSU. In the event of academic suspension/dismissal from any institution previously attended or currently being attended, an applicant must provide a letter of good standing from the last institution attended. Credits earned from a non-accredited institution will not count toward the degree but will be evaluated in the same manner as those earned at an accredited institution. However, final acceptance of such credits is contingent upon the equivalent of one semester of full-time study (12 or more semester credit hours) with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above for all course work attempted.

The Dean of Students or the Vice President of Student Affairs, regarding the student’s social/disciplinary status at the previous college or university attended, must send a transfer letter of recommendation. This letter may be faxed to the Admissions Office from the sending institution.

Entrance examinations may be required of applicants transferring into Kentucky State University.

Transfer students must submit the following additional documents for admission consideration:

  • Transcripts of all college work attempted
  • A letter of good standing from the registrar of the institution last attended (if student was suspended or dismissed from the last institution attended)
  • A letter of recommendation from the Dean of Students or the Vice President of Student Affairs verifying a satisfactory citizenship record (may be faxed to the Admissions Office)

All transfer students who have completed 24 or more semester hours of college work must have earned a cumulative GPA of 2.00.

(Courses which remedy the PCC deficiencies are subject to change.)

Students will not be permitted to take additional courses until all deficiencies are removed with a grade of “C” or above. Courses numbered below 100, e.g. MAT 099, will not count toward degree requirements.
