We suggest you apply for admission at the beginning of your last semester of attendance at your present institution.
Submit an application and official transcripts from all previously attended institutions. Applications are available online at www.charlestonsouthern.edu
Transcripts can be mailed to the Enrollment Services Office at Charleston Southern University, 9200 University Blvd, PO Box 118087, Charleston, SC 29423-8087
Transfers must meet the following 3 criteria:
· Minimum Grade Point Average of 2.0 (on a 4-point scale)
· At least 24 credit hours at a regionally accredited college or university
· Courses equivalent to Math 111 (College Algebra) and English 111 (Freshman Composition)
If you do not meet the transfer requirements, then you must submit an official high school transcript and official SAT or ACT scores in addition to official transcripts from all previously attended colleges or universities
Note: Students more than 21 years of age are not required to submit SAT and/or ACT scores
Transcripts are evaluated for credit by the Registrar’s Office after you have been accepted. Acceptance of Education, Nursing and Music courses require review by the appropriate Dean (For unofficial evaluations, please call the Enrollment Office).
A student can transfer up to 68 credit hours from a 2-year school, 89 credit hours from a 4-year school. No more than 30 elective credit hours will be accepted.
The following departments have time limitations on credit:
- Behavioral Sciences 10 years

Scholarships and grants are awarded based on college GPA; additional financial aid is based on FAFSA.
