For Transfer Students (Fall 2023)

We welcome you to transfer to TCU. It’s important to note, though, that the application procedure is a bit different for transfer students.

First, we need a little information from you to determine whether you are eligible to apply as a transfer student. This information will help us to determine approximately how many credits you’ll be able to transfer if you do.

Check your eligibility to transfer to TCU by following these two steps:

Step 1. Complete and submit this form.

Step 2. Email a copy of your college or university transcript to this address.

We can accept unofficial transcripts or student grade reports. That is, you do not need to ask your school to send it. You can just send us a copy of what you already have. We prefer PDF or an image format such as jpg. (Note, however, that we need official academic transcripts only upon application for admission.)

Let us know if you have any questions. We’ll be glad to walk you through it.
