Transfer FAQs

MMU offers generous academic scholarships ranging from $12,000 to $17,000 starting at a 2.0 cumulative college GPA. There are also opportunities for scholarships for athletics, talent, and more. MMU also offers need-based grants and honors all federal aid you are eligible and/or outside scholarships you have earned. When you file your FAFSA, be sure to list MMU (003465). 

Yes, while providing official transcripts can speed the admissions process, MMU will provide a free credit evaluation of unofficial transcripts if desired. 

A cumulative college GPA of 2.0 is the minimum requirement for admission to MMU. In addition to your application, official transcripts from your high school and all previous colleges are required. If you have a minimum of 20 transferrable college credits, the high school transcript requirement is waived. Be sure that all transcripts are sent directly from the high school or university to MMU. 

Absolutely! MMU loves visitors! Seeing the campus first hand and getting to know the MMU community is essential to the transfer planning process. During a campus visit, we will show you around campus, schedule an appointment with an academic advisor to plot out your program to graduation, review admissions and financial aid information. If interested in extracurricular activities such as athletics, fine arts, or campus ministry, you can also meet with representatives in those areas.

Don't be afraid to ask questions. Here is a list of the top 10 questions asked during a campus visit:

  1. What types of activities are available for transfer students to ease the transition to the four-year university? Is there a separate orientation for transfer students?
  2. Are there student organizations or specific programs for transfer students?
  3. Are there opportunities for transfer students to get involved in undergraduate research? Study abroad?
  4. Is there a specific transfer student advisor?
  5. Who evaluates transfer credit? Can you find out prior to enrolling how your credit will transfer?
  6. Are there certain levels of courses that will be off-limits to you as a transfer student, potentially coming in with junior standing? For instance, some universities limit intro level language courses to first and sophomore year students. If these courses are part of your degree requirements and you are not transferring them in, you will need to know how you will be able to get the credit.
  7. What percent of the student population are transfer students from community colleges?
  8. What is the housing situation like for transfer students? Is on-campus housing reserved for transfers? What kind of housing is available for undergraduate students with children and families?
  9. Is there an office for commuting students? Does it have a study space or an area that students can use between classes?
  10. Are child care services available for students?
  11. Does the school offer application fee waivers?
