To be defined as a "transfer student" you should have earned 15 or more hours before starting at ORU from a regionally accredited or otherwise recognized post-secondary institution since graduating from high school or receiving your GED. If you do not have at least 15 hours, you will enter with as a freshman. To learn more about applying as a freshman, click here

If you qualify as a transfer student, you will need to meet the following requirements to be considered for full acceptance:

  • Cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale. 

If you have attended more than one institution, the GPA from each school will be combined to calculate your cumulative GPA. In addition to your college transcript, you will need to have the high school from which you graduated send a final official high school transcript or official GED score report to the ORU. This must come directly from the high school or issuing institution.


No need to worry. We understand that there are exceptions. If you're thinking about ORU but don't meet these criteria, we still encourage you to start the application process. You may be granted probationary and/or conditional acceptance. This means you can still be a student at ORU, along with receiving extra tools and resources that will help you succeed as a college student.
