How to Apply - International Transfer

Welcome! Transfer students are incredibly important to us at Greenville University. GU considers transfer credit from regionally accredited institutions. Details about transfer credit are found on the transfer website.

Submit official test scores using one of the codes below:

  • TOEFL – 1256

  • IELTS – Select GU from the institution list. Scanned score reports with TRF number can be uploaded through your self-service online application center.

Transfer credit from a U.S. institution

Unofficial transcript evaluations can be done by the GU Office of International Admissions for students attending Illinois community colleges and St. Louis area community colleges.

International Transfer Credit

Previous college coursework and transfer credits will be evaluated on a case by case basis to ensure that students get the most out of their program of choice. Applicants who wish to use university-level transfer credit for courses completed at an institution outside the U.S. are required to have their transcripts evaluated "Course-by-Course" through an accredited service (ex. Scholaro).

Scholaro is Greenville University's preferred partner, and students will automatically receive at 10% discount using the Greenville Scholaro website.

GU will use this evaluation of the Course-by-Course credits as a guideline and reserves the right to make decisions about awarding appropriate credit.

After Acceptance:

You will be asked to provide a 300 USD deposit/fee to secure your place at Greenville, 200 USD will be applied to your semester tuition bill, and 100 USD is the Immigration Document Mailing fee.
