Transfer Students

A student transferring from another college or university must submit official transcripts from every college/university that he/she has attended along with a letter of good standing from the last college attended. Cumberland University accepts academic credit from regionally accredited institutions of higher education.

Students must have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.00 or better to qualify for regular admission. Transfer students who have passed less than thirty (30) hours at previous institutions must submit high school transcripts or General Education Development Test (GED) scores, plus American College Test (ACT) or Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores. 
Students twenty-five (25) and older will not be required to submit high school transcript/GED score or ACT or SAT score as long as the college transcript states a high school diploma or GED was received.
Transfer students with less than thirty (30) hours at a previous institution may be required to complete a series of Cumberland University placement tests. Any student requesting special consideration or exception to these criteria may address his/her requests to the Director of Admissions.
