Transfer Freshman

Transfer Freshman - A transfer freshman graduated from high school in the last five years, has attended another college, but has earned less than 30 semester hours or 50 quarter hours of transferrable college credit. 

            Steps to Apply:

  1. Submit an application to KSU online at GACollege411.org.  This requires completing the application and submitting with a $40 application fee.
  2. Have official SAT or ACT scores sent from the sending agency, either Collegeboard or ACT.
  3. Submit official high school transcript.  If your school allows you to send them electronically through GACOLLEGE411.ORG, please use that process.  Otherwise, a transcript can be sent from your high school to KSU.
  4. Submit official college transcripts from any college previously attended.  If you are enrolled at the time of application, request a transcript showing any work prior to the current term, and also request a final transcript at the end of the term.
  5. Follow the status of your application on the application status check.  If you see that the admission decision states you must take the COMPASS Exam, sign up through Owl Express, and an admission decision will be made based on the results on the exam.

Admission is a selective process. Meeting the application deadline or minimum standards does not guarantee acceptance. It is the responsibility of the applicant to review the admission standards in advance to understand the likelihood of eligibility.

KSU will not honor the GED from Traditional age students who have been out of high school for less than five years from the date of scheduled graduation. Students who are less than 23 years of age should attend a two year or private college and qualify as a transfer. However, adult learners may file the GED if they have been out of high school for more than five years and attempt to qualify as a non-traditional, adult applicant.
