Students who have previously attended other accredited colleges and universities may qualify for admission by submitting the following documents to the Admissions and School Relations Office:
- A completed Application for Admission.
- An official transcript of grades and credits from each college/university previously attended. Students must have a 2.00 (on a 4.00 scale) cumulative GPA on all previous coursework to be automatically admitted to UAFS. Students with less than a 2.00 Cumulative GPA will undergo further review for possible admission as a probation admit, or non-degree seeking conditional admit. Students must be in good financial and disciplinary standing and must not have been academically suspended from the last institution attended. Official transcripts from all colleges/universities attended must be submitted or sent directly to the Records Office in an official, sealed, school envelope. Official transcripts must be received two weeks prior to the beginning of the term in which the student wishes to enroll. Once submitted, students should allow ten business days for transcripts to be evaluated. Students may not register for courses until all official transcripts have been received and evaluated. Students should be prepared to submit course descriptions for coursework older than 15 years. Falsifying any part of the Application for Admission and/or failing to report previous college work will prevent a student from receiving federal financial aid and/or admission to the university.
- Test scores: ACT, SAT, or Compass or previous college course work demonstrating acceptable reading, English, and math placement.
- Proof of immunization against measles, mumps, and rubella. Immunity can be shown by providing proof of having received two doses of measles, two doses of mumps, and two doses of rubella, vaccine.
- Transfer students admitted to UAFS in good academic standing are subject to the same minimum academic standard requirements as continuing students. Transfer students admitted to UAFS on academic probation will be evaluated at the end of their first semester of enrollment.
- Any transfer student who has been dismissed from a program for reasons other than failure to maintain satisfactory academic progress is not eligible for admission to the university for a period of five years from the date of dismissal. After five years, admission may be considered upon criteria deemed appropriate by the university.
- Any student who is unhappy with their admission decision may go through the Admission Appeals process. To learn more about this process you may contact the Office of Admission.
- Transient Students
- Students who are actively enrolled in other institutions of higher education and wish to enroll for a summer session at UAFS must submit a completed Application for Admission, an official transcript indicating good academic standing from the institution in which they are actively enrolled, and shot records showing immunization against measles, mumps, and rubella. A student who enrolls in a course with a prerequisite must provide evidence of obtaining a "C" or higher in the prerequisite course. Students who continue to attend the university during the fall or spring semesters will be required to submit the same required documents as a transfer student.
