Transfer students make up a large part of the Columbia International University student body. Each year, we welcome many students from other institutions. Some students transfer because God has given them new direction for the future, while others transfer after attending a community college. Whatever your reasons for wanting to transfer to CIU might be, you’ll find lots of students like you on campus. When you enroll, you’ll attend an orientation session, and have a chance to connect with other transfer students.

Transfer students are those that have attempted 24 credit hours or more after high school at an accredited institution.

Although the University imposes no time limit upon the acceptance of college-level courses and SAT/ACT scores, the Academic Deans ultimately determine which transfer courses are credited in their programs.
