Transfer Students

Students who have attended another accredited institution of collegiate rank may be considered for admission with advanced standing. College credits presented by transfer students will be evaluated in terms of the quality of the student's work and the relationship of the subject matter to Dordt's curriculum.

A minimum grade of C is required in each course to receive credit. A maximum of 61 semester hours of academic credit is granted to graduates of community colleges. After the application materials have been evaluated, students will receive notification of credits accepted, student classification, and academic status.

  1. Complete the application for admission.
  2. Have an official high school transcript of grades 9-12 sent to Dordt University. See the Transcript Request Form.
  3. Have an official academic transcript from each college you have attended sent to Dordt University.

    To have an official transcript sent to Dordt University, contact the registrar's office of any colleges you have attended and request that they mail a transcript to Dordt. Transcripts are not considered official if they are sent by the student.
