Transfer Admissions

Applicants intending to transfer to Our Lady of Holy Cross College 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 OLHCC only for courses in which a minimum grade of “C” was earned, and which will apply directly to a program of study at Our Lady of Holy Cross College, unless otherwise informed.  Official evaluation of transfer course work will be performed only upon the student’s first registration at OLHCC.

Transfer students with less than 12 credit hours of completed college level credit will be considered first time freshmen. Applicants in this category must refer to the policy for Freshman Admission.

Admission Requirements

Transfer students with 12 or more transferable college level credit hours, who attained a grade point average of 2.0 or higher from their previous institutions, will be granted admission to the College.

If a student has not taken college level English and/or mathematics, with a "C" or better, at the previous institution, the ACT COMPASS Placement Test will be required prior to registration.

Suspension at another college or university will be honored at Our Lady of Holy Cross College for the length of the suspension. Students on academic suspension may be admitted to the College 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 Our Lady of Holy Cross College.

Conditional Admission Requirements

Transfer students with 12 or more transferable college level credit hours, who have attained a grade-point average of 1.75-1.99 at their previous institutions, may be granted conditional admission to the College.

If conditionally admitted the student will be allowed to take courses according to their individual abilities and needs as specified by the College; 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 the college. 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 college.

Application Procedures

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

  • an application processing fee; and
  • official transcripts from all colleges or universities attended.
