Admission Requirements for Transfer Students

Students who have satisfactorily completed at least 15 semester hours at an accredited institution may be admitted to regular standing with such advanced standing as their previous records may warrant. Requirements for advanced standing are as follows:

  1. Satisfactory credit from previous college, as shown on official transcripts. If the student has fewer than 30 semester hours credit from the previous college, he or she must submit satisfactory scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test and his or her high school transcript, as required for entering freshmen.
  2. Honorable dismissal from previous college. If a student is suspended from another college, but eligible to return, he or she may be considered for enrollment at Hampton University after the lapse of at least one semester or the term of suspension, whichever is longer. The University has the right, based upon the student's record, to revise the academic classification given such students at entrance.
  3. The Department of Architecture may request a portfolio of student work to assist in determining placement in the design studio.

Students who have earned a cumulative 2.5 cumulative grade point average in all college courses receive the highest consideration for admission.

The application deadline for transfer students is:

Fall semester:       March 1 
Spring semester:  October 15
