A transfer student is defined as any applicant who enrolled in a college or university after graduating from high school graduation. All qualified transfer applicants for undergraduate admission should submit the following documents:
- Completed application along with the non-refundable $40 application fee.
- An official transcript from each college or university attended. (Sent directly to the university from the Registrar’s Office of the previous institutions attended.)
- An official high school transcript and/or official General Equivalency Diploma (G.E.D.)
- Military records (if applicable).
- Writing sample (recommended).
Applicants for transfer admission are evaluated on the basis of their college record and must be eligible to return to the last institution in which they were enrolled. Transfer students must meet the same entrance requirements as first-time applicants. Emphasis on the high school record diminishes in importance as more college study is completed. The strength of the previous college(s) attended as well as the courses selected are factors in the evaluation process.
Transfer applicants are required to provide the Office of Admissions with transcripts from previous colleges, universities, two-year institutions and secondary schools attended signed by the appropriate officials. Even though no transfer of credit may be involved, all previous post-secondary experience must be certified by transcript or record of attendance.
To be eligible for admission at Fayetteville State University, transfer students must
- be eligible to return to the institution last attended; and
- have attained a 2.00 GPA or higher based on all courses attempted at all institutions.
Transfer students who graduated from high school beginning 1990 and beyond are required to meet the 1990 minimum admissions requirements of the Board of Governors of the University of North Carolina. Exceptions are as follows:
- Transfer applicants who have the associate of arts, the associate of science, or the associate of fine arts degree (institution may waive some of the minimum requirements for these applicants).

hours of degree-creditable work in each of these subject areas in an accredited institution of higher education: English, mathematics, the natural sciences, the social and behavioral sciences, and a second language).
- Applicants who do not meet all the minimum high school course unit requirements but who were awarded the high school diploma or a General Education Development certificate (GED) prior to the spring of 1988 (institution may waive some of the minimum requirements for applicants in this category).
