Transfer Admission

Transferring institutions can be a great opportunity for you! EKU admits over 1000 transfer students a year to on-campus programs. All of these students are looking to continue their education and expand their horizons with an EKU degree. They come from community colleges, four-year universities, out-of-state schools, and abroad. Many of them receive transfer scholarships for the work they’ve done at their previous institutions, and all of them are individually guided and supported by the Student Outreach and Transition Office. If you’re looking to join the ranks of the EKU transfer community, then you’re in the right place!


Am I a transfer student?

A transfer student is anyone who has attended another college or university after graduating high school but before coming to EKU.  The college credit you earned before graduating high school (dual credit) does not make you a transfer student, neither will taking college summer classes between high school graduation and your first fall term as a university freshman. Incoming freshmen with dual credit or college summer coursework will need to follow the Transfer Credit policies, but they have separate admission requirements and scholarship opportunities.

Similarly, fully online students have a unique admission and enrollment process. While coursework may be transferred to meet online degree requirements, fully online students will not receive the same scholarship and tuition opportunities as on-campus or commuting transfer students. 


Everything begins with applying, so review our admission requirements then complete the application.
