Transfer your college credits to finish your degree at EKU! If you have earned 23 or fewer hours of college credit since high school graduation, or have earned (or are in progress of earning) 24 or more credit hours at another institution, you’ll be considered a transfer student at EKU. 

Before applying, we recommend scheduling an appointment with a transfer advisor, and using our Transfer Equivalency Course Lookup tool to see how your courses will transfer to EKU. 

When you’re ready to apply, get started with the steps below. 

To Apply

  1. Fill out the free online application
  2. Send us your high school transcript (if you have 23 or fewer credit hours)
  3. Send us your official transcripts from each accredited university you attended, including dual credit from high school

Transfer students must have a minimum high school GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale, and be in

good academic and financial standing at their previous institution.
