Information for Transfer Students

Rice admits transfer students for both the fall and spring semesters. To be eligible to apply as a transfer student, you must have completed at least 9 hours of college credit and have graduated from high school in 2002 or earlier. The minimum recommended GPA for transfer applicants is 3.2 in all college work.

The transfer application comes in two parts. The first part asks for biographical information, and the second part contains the forms necessary to complete your application. Please see Part I for the admission calendar and deadlines, as well as for admission requirements.

Because our transfer students come to Rice from many different colleges and universities, we do not have a standard list of classes that transfer. If you are accepted to Rice, the registrar’s office will complete an audit of your credits and inform you which classes will transfer. You may also refer to our course catalog for a description of classes offered at Rice.
