Transfer to Central
Transfer students are invaluable to our community and make up nearly half of our student population!
Transfer Students are undergraduate students who have attended an accredited college or university and have attempted more than 6 credit hours.
*Excluding developmental (pre-college) work or credit hours accumulated as a concurrently-enrolled high school student.
How will my classes transfer to UCO?
Students can use the online transfer guide to determine how courses will transfer to UCO. The Online Transfer Guide provides students with course equivalencies for previously reviewed courses from other institutions.
If you are searching for a course, or courses, that are not listed in the database, this does not necessarily mean you will not receive credit upon transfer. It simply means we have not had the chance to evaluate that particular course. Upon admission our articulation department will evaluate your course(s).
For additional assistance prior to admission, students can make an in-person or phone appointment with one of our Transfer Specialists. Contact the Transfer and Transition Support Office to schedule an appointment.
Transfer Student Scholarships
The admission application is for both admission & scholarship consideration. To be considered for scholarships, students must apply and ensure admission materials are received no later than the scholarship deadline. Students meeting the scholarship deadline will be considered for academic scholarships at Central.
Students must have 24 earned hours at the time of scholarship deadline to be considered for academic scholarships. Student seeking second bachelor degrees are not eligible for academic scholarships.
- Fall and Summer Terms – April 1
- Spring Term – November 1
*There is no deadline for admission consideration.
Transfer Student Campus Visits
A tour of campus is the best way to see first-hand the many opportunities UCO has to offer. UCO offers two options specifically designed for transfer students.
Our Transfer Campus Tours are designed to meet the needs of our transfer students. Tour the campus, meet with an Academic Advisor, and hear from current UCO students that have experienced the transfer process.
Transfer students are also invited to attend Transfer Central, a full day event for students to explore UCO. On the day of the event, guests will meet with academic departments, take a campus tour, and attend a session about admission and scholarships.
