Undergraduate Admissions
Transfer Students

Admission Requirements

  •  Ordinarily a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.75 (on a scale where an A is 4.00) is required for transfer admission consideration. Applications are reviewed carefully; primary consideration given to course selection and individual course performance. The average GPA of admitted transfer students (based on transferable credits alone) is 3.34.

    Additional requirements may apply for The College of Nursing. Please click here for a list of prerequisites.  

    Students in Washington State's Running Start program should visit this page to consult freshmen Admission requirements regarding Running Start and Nursing. 

     Diagnostic Ultrasound applicants must submit supplementary forms (sent upon receipt of the initial application) for their files to be complete.

    Gaps in Education

    If an applicant has a gap in education of 5 or more years, they may be asked to establish a current academic record at another college or university prior to applying for transfer admission at Seattle University.  In addition, recent prerequisite coursework may be needed to apply to specific majors.  Please contact a Transfer Admissions Counselor  for more information.

    Mandatory Immunizations for Undergraduates

    Seattle University requires all students/staff/faculty enrolled in undergraduate courses to provide documentation that they have had two doses of the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR), a Tetanus booster in the last 10 years, and the 3 doses of the Hepatitis B series.

    In addition to the above immunizations, it is strongly recommended that you complete the usual childhood vaccine series and consider the Meningococcal vaccine. Immunization experts have issued a new vaccination recommendation for meningococcal disease stating that all first-year students living in residence halls should be immunized against meningococcal disease, a rare, but potentially fatal, bacterial infection commonly referred to as meningitis. Seattle University, however, at this time does not require the vaccine. The Student Health Center, like other primary care clinics, offers all of the requied vaccines.

    Please enter your mandatory immunization records online after you have been admitted at SU Online Student Health. Once you enter your records please send us a hard copy for verification. We will also accept photocopies of official immunization records from your primary care health provider’s office or records from your high school. Many of you may be unaware that your high school already has this information and is an excellent resource for obtaining these records.
