Q: How many credits do I need before I can apply as a transfer student to Emory University?
A: You need a minimum of 28 credit hours of college work, which does not include AP or IB credit.
Q: Do I need to send my SAT or ACT scores to Emory?
A: Yes, we require that you send your SAT or ACT scores if you have taken them within the last five years. If you are a non-native English speaker you will need to send a TOEFL exam score if that was taken within the last two years.
Q: Do I need to send in all of my official college transcripts including classes that I took at a local college in the summer?
A: We require all official college transcripts from schools that you have attended including summer course work. That is the only way we can award you credit for those classes.
Q: Should I send in my high school transcript?
A: If you are applying and have been in college fewer than two years you will need to submit your high school transcript. Please note that at any time when reviewing your application, the admission committee can request additional information, which may include your high school transcript even if you have more than the required two years of college work.
Q: Will Emory University take all of my college course work if I am accepted?
A: We will review your official transcripts with the required accompanying descriptions of courses from your institution's course catalog only after you have been accepted. If the class description is similar to what we offer here at Emory, that course will count towards Emory graduation credit. We will award a maximum of 60 credit hours. To graduate from Emory you must have completed 64 credit hours on the Emory campus.
