Requirements for Transfer Students

Oregon Institute of Technology welcomes applications from transfer students who have previously earned college-level credit from regionally accredited institutions of higher education. At least 36 quarter credits (24 semester credits) are required to be admitted on the basis of college record alone.

  • Transfer applicants must have a cumulative 2.25 GPA or better in college-level classes unless they hold an associate's or bachelor's degree already, in which case, only a cumulative 2.0 GPA is required.
  • In order to be admitted to Oregon Tech, transfer applicants must complete the equivalent of MATH 95 Intermediate Algebra (or higher) and WRI 115 Introduction to Writing (or higher) with grades of C- or better.
  • Applicants who do not have an associate's or bachelor's degree must have at least 36 quarter credits. No more than three of these credits can be in Physical Education and no more than ten percent of an applicant's total credits may be in Physical Education.

Records from all post-secondary institutions must be submitted for consideration. Applicants who graduated from high school after 1996 must also submit official high-school transcripts, unless they have completed two terms of college-level study in a second language.

Students with international transcripts must also have transcripts translated into English and into US standards on a course-by-course basis by an approved transcript evaluation service. There are multiple transcript evaluation services that are acceptable:

Applicants who have earned 12 to 35 college-level credit hours must also provide high-school transcripts or GED scores. In some cases, these students must submit SAT/ACT scores. Admission will be based on both high school and transfer GPA & subject requirements.

A Transfer Evaluation Report acknowledging the courses accepted by the university will be available to the applicant after admission status has been confirmed, prior to the planned term of enrollment. Acceptance of vocational/technical courses may be granted after registration if the student's administering department determines the courses have satisfied certain baccalaureate requirements. In all cases, course and/or department pre-requisites will be enforced.
