Transfer Students

Apply early! WSU Vancouver accepts qualified applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. Online applications are encouraged—and you’ll get results faster.

Admission requirements

  • You have attended college since graduating from high school (not including the summer immediately following high school graduation)

As a transfer student, you’re among friends. The majority of WSU Vancouver students have transferred from another school. 

Transfer students with a qualifying college grade-point average of 2.5 and at least 27 semester (40 quarter) hours of transferable college credit are eligible for admission if space is available at the time of application. If you have fewer hours, you must also meet the freshman admission requirements. If you have a lower GPA, your record will be reviewed to determine eligibility.

Transfer admissions requirements checklist

  • Submit the transfer admission application and pay the $50 application fee
  • Have official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended sent to us:

    WSU Vancouver Office of Admissions
    14204 NE Salmon Creek Avenue
    Vancouver, WA, USA 98686-9600

Additional item will be requested if you have fewer than 27 semester (40 quarter) hours of transferable credits or a grade point average lower than 2.5.

There are additional requirements if you have attended school outside of the United States.
