Transfer Admissions

Applicants intending to transfer to University of Holy Cross from regionally accredited colleges and universities must be considered in good standing at the last school attended. Regardless of date courses were taken, credit may be transferred to UHC only for courses in which a minimum grade of “C” was earned, and which will apply directly to a program of study at University of Holy Cross, unless otherwise informed.  Official evaluation of transfer course work will be performed only upon the student’s first registration at UHC. 


Transfer students who attained a grade point average of 2.0 or higher from their previous institutions will be granted admission to the University.

If a student has not taken college level English and/or mathematics, with a "C" or better, at the previous institution, the ACCUPLACER Placement Test will be required prior to an application decision being made.

Suspension at another college or university will be honored at University of Holy Cross for the length of the suspension. Students on academic suspension may be admitted to the University only as non-degree seeking students. Under no circumstances will course work completed in a non-degree seeking status be applied to any degree or certification program at University of Holy Cross.


Transfer students who have attained a grade-point average of 1.75-1.99 at their previous institutions, may be granted conditional admission to the University.

If conditionally admitted the student will be allowed to take courses according to their individual abilities and needs as specified by the University; this may include a lesser course load, approval for online course registration, and required advising sessions, among other requirements.

Any applicant who does not meet the above requirements will be denied admission to UHC. The applicant may decide to request an Appeal to the Admission Review Committee by submitting a written statement and three letters of recommendation. The statement should address why the applicant should be granted admission to the university.


In addition to a completed application form, the following items need to be received by the University within the published deadlines:

  • official transcripts from all colleges or universities attended.
