Applying as a Transfer Student

If you have enrolled in and completed one or more college courses after high school graduation when you apply for admission to SPU, you are a transfer student. Transfer students follow the procedures below:

  • Complete Seattle Pacific's Transfer Application or the Common Application Transfer Application. Students using the Common Application also must submit a $50 nonrefundable application fee and the required SPU member section. 
  • Students applying to the Lydia Green Nursing Program must apply via NursingCAS and submit the associated nonrefundable application fee.
  • If you are a transfer student who, at the time of application, has completed fewer than 45 college-level quarter credits or 30 college-level semester credits since graduating from high school, you must submit an official high school transcript and SAT or ACT scores with your application. 
  • If you are a transfer student who has completed more than 45 college-level quarter credits or 30 college-level semester credits, you are not required to submit high school transcripts and SAT or ACT scores for admission purposes. However, your high school transcripts and SAT or ACT scores can be useful for your placement in math courses and to prove proficiency in a foreign language. 
  • You are required to send official transcripts from all colleges and universities previously attended. These transcripts will be used for admission purposes and in order to award transfer credit.
