Transfer Admission Requirements

As a transfer student, we know your situation is a little different than the average Lipscomb applicant. We welcome students who have previously attended community college, junior college or other four-year universities.

Whether you’ve learned all you could learn from your previous college or simply realized your last school wasn’t a good fit, we’re here to give you the support you need to finish strong.

Follow these simple steps to apply to Lipscomb. You’ll know within a few weeks whether you have been accepted to join the herd.


Step 1

Complete an application

Don’t worry about the application fee—we waive it for all transfers!

Step 2

Find out how your credit will transfer

At Lipscomb, courses are generally accepted for transfer if they were earned at a regionally accredited college or university with a final grade of C or higher. To get a better look at how your credits will transfer, visit our transferring credits page.

Step 3

Send us your official transcripts

Submit an official transcript from each college you’ve previously attended. If you are transferring with fewer than 60 credit hours, we also ask that you submit your ACT or SAT scores, as well as your official high school transcript sent to Lipscomb directly from the issuing school. Please send transcripts to:

Step 4

Set up an optional interview

We offer an admissions interview just in case you have any lingering questions you’d like to ask. Plus, we want to get to know you! Interviews usually take about a half hour and can be done either in person or by telephone. Just call us at 1-877-58-BISON to set one up.

If you have any remaining questions about the application process or run into any trouble while submitting your transcripts, don’t hesitate to contact your admissions counselor.
