Transfer Students

No matter where you started your education, FranU is a great place to continue it.

  • Minimum requirements for transfer students:
  • 2.0 GPA or better on all college-level coursework (excluding developmental/remedial courses) attempted at a regionally accredited institution
  • Applicants who have earned less than 30 semester hours or less than 46 quarter hours of college coursework must meet the requirements for freshman admission
  • Official transcripts from every college or university you’ve attended submitted to FranU
  • Eligibility to re-enroll at the last institution attended

Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to your intended program of study.

College Transcripts

Official copies of transcripts from every college or university you’ve attended must be submitted as part of your application. To be considered official, transcripts must be sent directly from the issuing institution either electronically or sealed in the institution’s official envelope. If your transcripts are under a different name such as a maiden name, please let the FranU Office of Admissions know in order to ensure your transcripts are recorded correctly.

If mailed, transcripts can be sent directly to FranU’s Office of Admissions:

Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University
Office of Admissions
5414 Brittany Drive
Baton Rouge, LA 70808

Applicants currently enrolled at another institution can be admitted provisionally based on in-progress transcripts. Complete official transcripts must be received within 30 days of the first day of class of the student’s first semester at FranU to continue enrollment and be removed from provisional acceptance. If not received on time, a hold will be placed on their account which will prevent registering for the next semester until the complete transcript is received.

Academic Probation or Academic Suspension

  • Applicants who are on academic probation and have not been dismissed from another college or university will be placed on academic probation at FranU.
  • Applicants admitted on academic probation must meet the academic policies of FranU (see Academic Standing)
  • Applicants on academic suspension or dismissed at another college or university will be denied admission to FranU until they qualify for re-admission at the previous institution

Transferring Credits from Other Colleges or University

FranU evaluates the transferability from other institutions after you’ve submitted an application and all transcripts from previous colleges and universities have been received. For an estimate of how many courses that you’ve already taken that may count toward your degree at FranU, check out our transfer equivalency guide.
