Make it Official. Apply.
You’re considered a transfer student if you have completed at least 12 college or university credit hours. All you need to do is complete these three steps:

  1. Apply online for free. Just create a quick login ID and pin, then fill in the application fields.
  2. Send your latest transcript(s) from each college or university attended to our director of transfer admission at 1100 Rockhurst Road, Kansas City, MO 64110.
  3. If you’ve completed less than 24 hours of college coursework, you must also send us your high school transcript and ACT or SAT scores. Some high schools include test scores on their transcript. If yours doesn't, you can call 319-337-1309 to request your ACT score or 609-771-7600 for your SAT score.
