Admission Requirements for Transfer Students

Admission requirements for Eastern Illinois University transfer students vary depending on the amount of college coursework completed prior to the transfer and the grades received in that coursework.

24 or more college-level semester hours

must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 grading scale based on ALL college-level work attempted AND a 2.0 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale from the last institution attended.

Fewer than 24 college-level semester hours

Applicants with less than 24 college-level semester hours must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 grading scale based on ALL college-level work attempted AND a 2.0 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale from the last institution attended AND meet freshman admission criteria.

Benefits of Early Application

The earlier you apply and are admitted, the sooner you are invited to come to campus and register for classes. Prime classes tend to fill up quickly with registered students.

Eastern does review closed classes and often opens new sections over the registration period, but it is important to apply and send us your transcripts as early as possible. Eastern accepts applications one year in advance. Even if you have not finished your transferable associate degree, it is important to start your admission file at Eastern.

These are minimum requirements and do not guarantee admission to the university.
