Transfer Student Requirements

If you are applying for Gardner-Webb Online, no high school transcripts or test scores are required, only 24 hour transfer credit and official transcripts from previous college(s) is required.

The applicant’s record is evaluated by Gardner-Webb retention standards, or the applicant must be eligible to return to his/her previous college in order to be accepted.

How many credits can be transferred?

Students transferring from accredited two-year institutions may transfer up to 60 credit hours. Students transferring from accredited four-year institutions may transfer up to 90 credit hours. Students transferring from a combination of two- and four-year institutions may transfer a maximum of 90 credit hours with no more than 60 of the 90 hours coming from two-year institutions. All transfer students must complete at least the final 30 credit hours with Gardner-Webb.

Credit may be transferred only for courses in which the student has earned a C (2.0) or better. The student must meet graduation requirements for the total number of hours required.

Courses accepted as transfer credit are recorded with grades, grade points, and quality points. However, the grade point average for graduation is computed on academic credit earned at Gardner-Webb. The Registrar interprets the transfer policy and certifies students for graduation.
