Undergraduate Admissions

Admission Requirements

Ordinarily a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 (on a scale where an A is 4.00) is required for transfer admission consideration. Applications are reviewed carefully; primary consideration given to course selection, academic trend and individual course performance. The average GPA of admitted transfer students for 2015 was 3.44.

Prerequisite requirements may apply to all majors. Consult the Typical Two Year Program of Study for more information on specific major prerequisite requirements or email transfer@seattleu.edu to receive a checklist of requirements for individual majors.

Gaps in Education

If an applicant has a gap in education, they may be asked to establish a current academic record at another college or university prior to applying for transfer admission at Seattle University. Please contact a Transfer Admissions Counselor for more information.

Mandatory Immunizations for Undergraduates

Seattle University requires all students/staff/faculty enrolled in undergraduate courses to provide documentation that they have had two doses of the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR), a Tetanus booster in the last 10 years, and the 3 doses of the Hepatitis B series.

In addition to the required immunizations, it is strongly recommended that you complete the usual childhood vaccine series and consider the Meningococcal vaccine. The Student Health Center, like other primary care clinics, offers all of the required vaccines. Contact the Student Health Center for more information.
