Transfer Application

Select the following applications if you wish to transfer your credits towards an on-campus or online degree at Cal U. 



How to Apply?

How do I transfer? Here are the steps you'll need to take to apply to Cal U as a transfer student:

  1. Submit a completed application form.
  2. Send in your application fee.
  3. Mail an official high school transcript, which includes class rank or GED certificate and scores. (This requirement may be waived for students with an associate degree.)
  4. Send SAT or American College Test (ACT) scores (Optional for transfer students).
  5. Submit all official college transcripts.

Applying for Financial Aid

When completing the Cal U application form, check "yes" in answer to the question: Do you wish to apply for financial aid? You also must complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is available online, or from your local bank, public library, guidance counselor or Cal U's Financial Aid Office.

After you are accepted and your financial information has been reviewed, the University's Financial Aid Office will mail you an award letter detailing your financial aid package. For more information, visit our financial aid pages or call the Financial Aid Office at 724-938-4404. 

Next Steps

Your Cal U application goes to the Admissions Office, where it will be reviewed along with your test scores and transcripts. Once you have been accepted for admission, the Articulation and Transfer Office will evaluate your credits to determine how many credits will transfer to Cal U. 

Admission is granted on a rolling basis, and you should receive your admission notification within a few weeks.
