Admissions Process

  • Application
    Complete the Application for Admissions. You should include transcripts of prior academic credit earned. If you do not have student copies of your transcripts, request them from the appropriate university or college and have them sent directly to SFU. If you will not be submitting transcripts from a University or College, you must include proof of a high school diploma. In addition, please include copies of your professional licenses as well as copies of professional certificates.

  • Application Evaluation
    SFU will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your prior academic credit, relevant educational training, and learning experiences. Within ten working days of receipt of your application, we will prepare a detailed Evaluation Report. This report will outline those courses we have determined you should take and those courses for which we have accepted transfer credit.

  • Transferring
    Undergraduate students may transfer up to 94 hours of credit from four-year, degree-granting institution. Graduate students may transfer a combined maximum of 15 semester hours of transfer credit and prior learning credit to be used on a master's degree program.

    You will first need to apply for admission to SFU. SFU requires one transcript from each institution you have attended.
