Students from accredited institutions may be considered for transfer to the University of Dayton provided they are in good standing socially and academically (minimum of a C average - 2.0 cumulative grade point average). Possession of the minimum grade point average for consideration does not imply admissibility to the University. Most areas of study prefer a 2.5 or higher grade point average for admission.
Transfer students will be considered for admission after they have followed the regular admission procedure. Applicants for transfer admission may submit the University of Dayton's online application or the Common Application. All transfer candidates must submit official transcripts from all institutions previously attended. ACT or SAT scores may be requested by the Admission and Financial Aid office during the application review. The dean's office of the appropriate college or school will evaluate the transcript(s) to determine the number of transferable credits. In general, all college credits earned with a "C-" (1.7 on a 4.0 scale) or higher from any regionally accredited college or university will transfer and be included on the University of Dayton transcript. No credit will be given for a course in which the student earned below a "C-". The evaluation to determine which courses will be accepted toward the degree will also be completed by the dean's office of the appropriate college or school.
A student with transfer credit from a two-year institution will be required to have at least 54 semester hours from a four-year institution for any baccalaureate degree. A transfer student is considered for a degree only if the last 30 semester hours have been taken from the University of Dayton and other requirements for graduation have been met.
