Admission from Other Colleges

General Information

Transfer applicants for admission are students who have earned college credit at regionally accredited collegiate institutions and wish to transfer to SPSU to pursue a degree.

Students planning to transfer from another college must have transcripts sent directly from all colleges attended to our admissions office without regard to the applicant's wishes concerning transfer credit for courses.

The application deadline dates for each semester are as follows:


Deadline Date


April 1


July 1


November 1

Required Documents

Unless otherwise noted for a specific admission type/category, the application file is complete and ready for review when the Office of Admissions (Southern Polytechnic State University, 1100 South Marietta Parkway, Marietta, Georgia 30060-2896) has received the following:

  • A completed Undergraduate Application for Admission to Southern Polytechnic State University
  • A $20.00 non-refundable application processing fee (check made payable to Southern Polytechnic State University)
  • Some applicants may be required to present TOEFL scores, or COMPASS scores
  • College transcripts (mailed directly from colleges attended)

High school transcripts and SAT I or ACT scores are generally not required for applicants with 30 or more semester hours of acceptable transfer credit. If there is any doubt that you have the required transfer work, you should submit these documents as well.

Transfer applicants with international credentials may be required to send their educational credentials to an approved SPSU professional evaluation service before being considered for admission.
