Georgian International University welcomes transfer students from other graduate universities of recognized standing. Transfer students may be admitted with such advanced credits as the previous record may warrant. Credit transfer to Georgian International University is a highly selective process. It does not follow automatically from admission to graduate program, but rests entirely on the Graduate Committee’s independent judgement of the applicant’s qualifications. A graduate student must have received at least 3 transferable credit hours and have a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of a 3.0 (B).
Transfer applicants must ask the institution(s) they attended to send a transcript of their academic records to the Office of Admissions at Georgian International University (mailing address provided below) for transcript evaluation. The fee for transcript evaluation is $225.00 for American students and $350.00 for international students payable by a U.S. check, money order or bank wire to Georgian International University. For bank wire information please contact the Office of Bursar, Tel: 1-302-366-0505, press option 3. The applicant must write a letter explaining the courses for which he/she is petitioning to get transfer credits, and indicate the academic program for which he/she is applying at Georgian International University. Our Office of Admissions in some cases may employ services of an independent organization which will make recommendations to the Office of Admissions and/or Graduate Committee at Georgian International University the standards of credits and the institutions attended.
