Transfer Admission Appeal

Eastern Kentucky University has standardized university admission requirements. However, your academic history and circumstances may be unique and warrant further examination. We offer the ability for all transfer students and first-time college students aged 21 years and older to appeal their admission decision. You'll find the form located in your application portal. If you have difficulty accessing the form or would like to discuss this opportunity further, please make an appointment to speak with professional transfer staff.

Why was I denied admission?

  • For students earning fewer than 24 credit hours, only your high school GPA is considered for admission. Your high school GPA must be a 2.0 or higher. 
  • If you completed 24 or more hours after high school graduation, then your cumulative GPA from all previous college work is averaged and must be 2.0 or higher.  

Factors to consider when preparing materials for an admission appeal:

Why EKU? Provide driving factors that motivate your desire to attend our institution. Specific programs, campus life, location of the campus, student support services, and similar motives can be valid reasoning. 

Provide information on events or circumstances that prevented you from being successful and describe periods of personal growth or a change in those circumstances

  • Physical or mental health, family, lack of focus or maturity
  • Passage of time from your last attempt at college classes 
  • Experiences that have occured since your last enrollment
