Required Credit Hours for Transfer Consideration

Transfer students must complete their first college semester before applying to Purdue. You must have 12 graded credit hours and be registered to complete 12 more. Depending on the strength of your academic credentials, the admissions committee may wait to see second-semester grades before making a decision.

Students who were previously admitted to Purdue and want to transfer into the same major you were admitted to before may apply with 0 graded hours.

ACT/SAT scores are required if applying with less than 24 graded hours. Purdue retains test scores of all applicants for several years. There is no need to supply them again if you have a previous application with Purdue.
