Applicants seeking admission as transfer students must fulfill the following requirements. They must have official copies of all high school transcripts or GED results, and post-secondary transcripts forwarded to the Admissions office. An official transcript is one that has been issued by an institution and received by Methodist University in an envelope sealed by the issuing institution. The transcript will contain the official school seal or stamp and signature of the Registrar. Transcripts received from secure, recognized electronic document delivery systems are also considered official. Transfer students must show overall academic success at all former institutions. Standardized test scores (SAT or ACT scores) must also be provided unless the student will be over 21 years old prior to enrollment or the student has completed 31 semester hours of transferable course work. For students with more than 31 semester hours of college credit, the admissions decision will be based solely on collegiate performance. For students with less than 31 semester hours of college credit, admissions decisions will also take high school performance into consideration. All transfer students must be eligible to return to the last post-secondary institution attended. All transfer students must successfully complete the English Placement Examination before registering for classes. To schedule an appointment for the English Placement Examination, call (910) 630-7151.
A complete transfer admissions file includes:
Although Methodist University has a rolling admissions deadline, we encourage students to apply as early as possible. Once a file is complete it is typically read, and students are notified of their status, within seven to fourteen days. When all post-secondary transcripts are received by the admissions office, those transcripts are sent to the registrars office for evaluation of transfer credit. We welcome qualified applicants for the fall or spring semester.
ACT Code: 3127
SAT Code: 5426
Title IV Code: 002946
Once the student is accepted and the Office of Admissions has received official transcripts from all previous institutions, those transcripts will be sent to the Registrar’s Office for an official transfer evaluation. Typically, transfer evaluations are completed and mailed to the student within 10-14 days of the receipt of all official transcripts. No unofficial evaluations will be completed and all official transcripts must be received in order for an official evaluation to be performed. In determining the transferability of academic credit, the following minimum guidelines will be followed, with the understanding that Methodist University is at no time under any obligation, legal or otherwise, to accept the academic credits of any institution, except where provided for in reciprocal contractual agreements among colleges. The following guidelines apply to all transferable credits:
Financial Aid for Transfer Students
A private college education is no small investment, but it is probably the most important investment you will ever make. Methodist University is committed to helping defray the cost to as many of our students (and their families) as possible. After January you will be able to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the upcoming academic year. While the FAFSA form is the only application required for all need-based scholarship, grant, loan and work-study opportunities at Methodist University, it should not be the only scholarship application that you complete. We strongly recommend that each student search for outside scholarships through a number of resources, including online scholarship search programs, scholarship handbooks and information available in most high school guidance offices.
Students transferring from accredited institutions who have maintained a cumulative GPA of 3.1 or better (on a four point scale) on thirty-one (31) semester hours or more of college level work at the previous institution(s) will be awarded a Transfer Scholarship. Renewal of Transfer Scholarships is determined at the end of a two-semester period and is contingent on the student making satisfactory academic progress. Students seeking re-admission to Methodist University are ineligible to be considered for this scholarship.
Pay your enrollment deposit
Complete the Confirmation of Enrollment Form and submit this form and your enrollment deposit (if required…Your acceptance letter will tell you if you need to pay an enrollment deposit and how much to pay). The enrollment deposit is the “next step” once you have made the decision to attend MC. Housing assignments, class schedules and orientation require that you pay this deposit. It is important to remember that the enrollment deposit is non-refundable, so you don’t want to pay it until you are positive that you will be attending MC. May 1st is the priority deadline for the enrollment deposit; however, deposits will be accepted on a space-available basis after May 1st. Students accepted to the PGA Golf Management (PGM) program will be notified of the enrollment deposit deadline in their PGM acceptance letter.
Day transfer students who have paid the enrollment deposit will be contacted by an academic advisor to pre-register for courses.
