To transfer to the University of New Orleans, you should apply for admission at least one semester before you wish to enroll. You'll need to submit your application fee as well as complete, official transcripts from each college and university you have attended. If you are enrolled at another college when you apply, follow up with final records at the close of the semester.
The Office of Admissions will evaluate your academic work taken at other institutions for general university purposes. A complete transfer credit evaluation will be mailed to you once you are admitted and all official transcripts are received. The dean of your major college will determine which credits will be accepted towards your UNO degree. If you receive transfer credit for English 1158, you will need to validate that credit by passing the English Proficiency Examination for transfer students. You must take the exam during your first two regular semesters of enrollment at UNO.
Effective Fall 2005, the minimum cumulative GPA required on 18 semester hours of non-remedial coursework will be 2.25. Not more than one-half of the credit required for your degree may be accepted from community or junior colleges. You may earn a maximum of one-fourth of your degree credit through a combination of CLEP, Advanced Placement Tests, Advanced Standing Exams, bypass credit, non-traditional credit or correspondence study.
