The University of Montevallo welcomes all students interested in transferring to UM from another collegiate institution. We are here to answer all of your questions as you make the transition.
Applying as a Transfer
- A minimum of a cumulative C average on all college-level study attempted must have been attained. This is a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better based on a 4.0 scale. Quality points from study previously attempted at Montevallo are not included in a transfer application review.
- A transfer applicant must be a student in good standing. Neither probation nor suspension can be in effect at the previous or current college or university attended.
- Transcripts of all previous study attempted must be submitted and evaluated before an application review can be conducted. It is the responsibility of the student to arrange for the transcripts to be mailed to the University. All academic records must be received at least one week (seven days) prior to the intended date of enrollment.
- Students who have completed fewer than 24 semester hours (or 36 quarter hours) of college-level study must also submit a secondary-school transcript and either an ACT or SAT I score report, and must satisfy all requirements for freshman admission.
- A maximum of 64 semester hours (or 96 quarter hours) may be transferred for credit from either a community or junior college.
