Do you have what it takes?

If you’ve completed at least 12 credit hours of college-level work after graduating from high school, you’re considered a transfer applicant.

Which credentials are considered?

  • If you’ve completed more than 24 college credit hours at the time you apply, your previous college academic record is reviewed.
  • If you’ve completed fewer than 24 credit hours at the time you apply, your high school transcript, SAT and/or ACT test scores, and previous college academic record are reviewed. Emphasis will be placed on your college academic record.

In order to receive consideration for transfer admission to the University at Buffalo, it is recommended that students present a strong record of college study, earning a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. It should be noted, however, that requirements may vary depending on academic program.

Some departments have supplemental admission criteria, higher GPA requirements, departmental application deadlines, and limited capacity.
