Cheyney University welcomes students who want to transfer from another college or university.

Transfer applicants are:

Students who have attended a post-secondary institution after high school graduation/GED completion who have earned 12 or more college-level credits and wish to earn a degree at Cheyney University.

  • Submit a completed undergraduate admission application to the Office of Admissions along with a non-refundable $25.00 application fee (money order or cashier's check)
  • An official high school transcript SAT/ACT scores
  • Official transcripts from all institutions attended since high school

Transfer students who have completed 12 transferable credits and more are not required to have taken the SAT or ACT standardized tests.

Transfer students should possess a minimum of 2.0 in order to transfer to Cheyney University. Credits are transferable but grades are not. Credits will transfer only if the student has earned a “C” or better.

Students may transfer credits from regionally and nationally accredited institutions. Upon receipt of official transcript an initial evaluation is made at the office of Admissions. Students can be informed on request as to which courses will transfer to Cheyney University. However the final evaluation is done by the college dean of the student's major.
