Transfer Students

What is a transfer student?
Any student who has ever been enrolled at any post-secondary school after completing high school or receiving their GED (even if you took one course or did not complete a semester) is considered a transfer student.

To see how your credits will transfer to PSU, visit out transfer database. For additional questions on your transcript evaluation and how your credits apply to your degree please email

Transfer Application Requirements

  • A completed application, either the PSU Panther Application or the Common Application (fee required) and an essay. Additionally, for students transferring from a CCSNH school, we accepted the NH Transfer Connections Application which is free and requires no essay.
  • Official copy of high school transcript or GED/HiSET scores. This requirement can be waived if an associates degree or higher has been earned
  • Official copies of all college transcripts, including grades from most recent semester completed, and cumulative grade-point average (GPA) of 2.0 based on a 4.0 scale on the final transcript from the institution you are currently attending or last attended (required for consideration)

Additional Requirements:

  • There are selective requirements for applicants seeking admission to PSU’s Art or Music, Theatre and Dance programs.
  • If you are a transfer student considering nursing, please email Karen Johnson.
  • International applicants who currently have an F-1 visa, or intend to apply for one, should see our information for International Students.


Admissions Deadlines

The application and all supporting credentials (see application checklist above) must be received by the following dates:

Application Deadlines

  • Fall Semester: May 1
  • Spring Semester: December 1

Deposit Deadlines

  • Fall Semester: May 15

Candidates applying after deadlines may receive consideration on a space available basis. The University reserves the right to close admission prior to the above deadlines if enrollment has reached full capacity.

Merit-Based Scholarship

Merit-based scholarships are awarded based upon your GPA at the time of decision and are not adjusted based upon final GPA. Merit scholarships are renewable for up to three additional years, at the awarded amount (for a total of eight full-time fall and spring semesters). Notification of eligibility is included in your acceptance letter. All merit awards are evenly split between fall and spring semesters. A specific cumulative GPA is required annually to renew merit scholarships, as follows: Presidential and Dean’s: 3.0; Aspire: 2.75. Click here to see PSU’s merit-based scholarships!
