Transfer Students

 Transfer Tuesdays

The Admissions Office invites transfer students to "Transfer Tuesdays”, this summer, every other Tuesday at either 9am or 1pm. 

   During Transfer Tuesdays you will be able to: 

  • Complete your placement testing
  • Register for fall courses
  • Take care of your last minute UVa-Wise business: (student ID, email address, housing, health packet…)



Transfer Students

Students who wish to transfer from another institution must submit a completed application, $25 nonrefundable application fee, and an official transcript from all colleges attended, even for one course. Students who have attempted fewer than 30 transferable hours of course work also must meet freshman requirements for admission (please see separate section on freshman admission) and must submit official high school transcripts and SAT/ACT scores. The SAT/ACT requirement is waived for applicants who are 25 years of age or older.

A transfer student should complete the application process at least 30 days prior to the anticipated date of enrollment to allow sufficient time for transcript evaluation.

Transfer students should meet the following criteria:

Have an overall grade point average of 2.2. Applicants who have less than a 2.2 grade point average but at least a 2.0 are reviewed by the Admissions Committee, and if admitted, may be subject to provisional status. Students with less than a 2.0 normally are not admitted to the College.

Must be in good standing and eligible to return to the college or university last attended at which they were enrolled full-time in a degree program.

Must transfer from an accredited institution.

Evaluation of Transfer Credits
Once a transfer student is admitted, an evaluation of all courses completed at all colleges attended will be conducted. Only courses equivalent to University of Virginia or UVa-Wise courses are eligible for transfer. Transfer credit will be awarded for grades of C- or better or CR for courses designated credit/no credit. Students transferring from the Virginia Community College System or Richard Bland College should see the section below. A maximum of 62 semester hours earned from a two-year college may be counted toward graduation at UVa-Wise.
