Transfer credit priority will be given to semester hours from regionally accredited institutions where graded credit was awarded.

 

Transfer students are considered students who have attempted at least 24 hours of non-developmental coursework at another two-year or four-year institution. Students who fall into this category are not required to submit high school transcripts or test scores. Transfer applicants will be granted admission to TROY if they are in good academic standing at the last college attended and if they have an overall grade point average of at least a 2.00 on all college/university work attempted. Technical and/or remedial/developmental work is not considered in determining grade point average. Applicants who have been suspended from another institution for any reason must be eligible to return to that institution before being considered for admission to TROY.
