Transfer Students Admission Standards

Transfer students applying to The University of Toledo baccalaureate colleges must be in good standing and have a grade point average of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale or the equivalent to a "C" average in all previous course work. Some colleges may have transfer policies that are slightly different. Students are advised to contact the college into which they are transferring for additional information.


Arts and Sciences

A transfer student needs at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA to be directly admitted into one of the Pre-Medical, Pre-Dentistry or Pre-Veterinary programs. Any transfer student who does not meet this minimum GPA will be accepted into the College of Arts and Sciences and referred to the Pre-Medical, Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Veterinary adviser, who will make the final decision as to the student's entry into the program.

Transfer students pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing are admitted into a pre-nursing curriculum in the College of Arts and Sciences. Upon the completion of the pre-requisite course work (the amount of which depends upon the transferable course work), there is a competitive admission process for the professional sequence of the Bachelor's degree program, which is housed at the Medical College of Ohio.


College of Engineering

Students who have attained a cumulative GPA of 2.75 with specific emphasis on course work transferable into undergraduate programs in the College of Engineering will receive admission into the Bachelor of Science in Engineering programs. Transfer students must be ready to enroll in Chemistry I and Calculus I.

Students who do not meet the minimum standards but have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 will be reviewed by the College of Engineering Admission Committee on an individual basis. Those who are not admitted into one of the Bachelor of Science in Engineering programs can be considered for one of the Bachelor of Engineering Technology programs.


College of Education and Allied Professions

Students who plan to enroll in the teaching programs in the College of Education and Allied Professions must meet the following cumulative GPA requirements depending upon class rank:

Freshmen: 2.2 or above

Sophomores: 2.3 or above

Juniors/Seniors: 2.5 or above overall and in their chosen major

Effective Fall 1998, the first professional degree for physical therapists will be awarded at the post-baccalaureate level upon the completion of the physical therapy program. The Medical College of Ohio will continue to house the professional sequence of what is expected to be a 3-plus-3 program. The College of Education and Allied Professions and the Medical College of Ohio are currently working collaboratively to restructure this program. Students interested in pursuing a career in physical therapy should contact the physical therapy adviser at (419) 530-2495. The adviser will have up-to-date information on the transition to this new program.


College of Pharmacy

Transfer students seeking admission into the College of Pharmacy are encouraged to apply for admission for the fall term. Application materials must be received by the Office of Admission no later than April 1, 1998, for admission consideration for Fall Semester, 1998. Transfer students must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5. Any transfer student who is not an Ohio resident and/or has completed course work at a non-Ohio institution will be considered on an individual basis. However, the College of Pharmacy Admissions Committee rarely considers out-of-state applicants with a GPA below 2.9.

Transfer students are admitted into a pre-pharmacy program and cannot automatically be admitted into the professional division, regardless of credits earned at other institutions. The College of Pharmacy considers applicants only from second-year students currently enrolled at The University of Toledo.
