Are You a Transfer Student?
  • If you have completed one or more college courses after your high school graduation, you will apply as a transfer student. If not, follow the admission procedures for incoming First Year students. (Keep in mind: Running Start or other dual-enrolled high school students are considered First-Years)
  • If you have completed an associate’s degree from a regionally approved university or two-year college, your degree may fulfill Exploratory Curriculum and Foundations requirements. Find out if you have a direct transfer degree.
  • Discover how credits from courses you have already taken may transfer into SPU with the Transfer Course Equivalency Guide. And don’t miss these important transfer student application deadlines.
  • If you will have a completed bachelor's degree before you enter SPU, you will follow the admission procedures as a post-baccalaureate student.
