Transfer Admission Requirements

What do we mean by transferrable credit?

Admissions will use your total number of academic GPA credits completed after high school at an accredited college or university when determining whether or not you are a transfer student. Only credits completed at an institution accredited by an accrediting association recognized by Boise State will be used for admission review. Please visit the Registrar’s Transfer Credit Basics website for a complete list of acceptable accrediting associations. On occasion, credits that are not used by Admissions in classifying you as a transfer student might apply to your degree, depending on your major. There may be credits that are not listed that are considered non-transferrable by the Boise State Admissions Office.

The following credits DO NOT count towards the needed transferrable academic credits for admission purposes

  • Credit earned from AP and/or CLEP exam
  • Credit for prior learning
  • Credit from a college/university that is not accredited by an accepted accrediting association.
  • Credit from Joint Services Transcript or ACE Prometric
  • Credit with pass/fail grade
  • Dual/concurrent enrollment credit*
  • Credit earned from AP and/or CLEP exam
  • Religious course credit
  • Remedial credits and credits bellow 100 level (a 095 course, etc.)
  • Technical and Vocational credit

*Dual/concurrent enrollment credit is considered in your overall transfer GPA but does not count towards the credit that makes you a transfer student for admissions purposes.
