Transfer Student Admissions Guidelines

Failure to disclose a complete collegiate record may result in the denial of admission to or the dismissal from Chadron State College. Students may not omit or disregard any part of their previous college records, whether part or full-time, with or without degree objectives, whether or not credit has been granted or whether or not they desire to transfer credit.

Prospective transfer students must be eligible to return to the institution last attended. Those who have been suspended or dismissed from another college or university for academic or personal reasons may not be considered for admission until eligible to return to their former institution, or until one full academic semester has elapsed.


One official transcript from each college attended must be submitted, even if no credit was earned at the institution. Students may not omit any part of their previous college record, whether part-time or full-time, with or without degree objectives, whether or not credit has been granted, or whether or not they desire to transfer credit. Failure to disclose a complete collegiate record may result in denial of admission or in dismissal from Chadron State College. One official high school transcript is required if the applicant has attempted fewer than 12 college credits, or at the discretion of the Admissions Office.

Grade Point Average

Transfer applicants must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of "C" (2.0) earned at institutions accredited by a regional higher education accrediting agency to be eligible for admission without qualification. If accepted, students with grade point averages below this level or who earned their credit from non-accredited schools are admitted on a probationary status.

Associates Degree & Essential Studies Waiver

Completion of specific lower division courses may also be required in individual degree programs.

Students enrolled in Associate degree programs are encouraged to complete their program requirements prior to enrolling at CSC to maximize credit transfer and to possibly qualify for the Essential Studies waiver. Students who are close to completion may be advised to complete any remaining hours toward their associates degree completion through reverse transfer.
