Thank you for your interest in transferring to Central State University. We look forward to having you join the Marauder family.
The following procedures must be met to be considered for admission as a transfer student:
- Complete an application online.
- Official transcripts (sealed envelope with the raised seal on the document) from all other institutions attended must be submitted to the Office of Admissions as part of the Central State University Application. Students attending public universities in Ohio should be advised that transcripts will be sent electronically from the institution's registrar. Typically, it takes 3 - 7 business days for transcripts to be generated and sent.
Failure to list attendance at a college or university on the admissions application may be grounds for revocation of admission or dismissal from the university.
- Additionally, if you have not completed 30 semester hours or 45 quarter hours, you must submit your final high school transcript.
Please have OFFICIAL transcripts mailed to:

Transfer of Credits/Transcript Evaluation
Central State University accepts transfer credit from colleges and universities accredited by regional accrediting associations. The registrar will determine whether the university accepts credit from other universities. Under state law, the university is required to accept grades of D or better for transfer credit from state assisted colleges and universities in Ohio. (Credits from “D” grade courses will count towards the 124 credits required for graduation. However, the student may still need to repeat the class if Central State requires a “C” grade in the course.) Grades of C or better are generally acceptable from out-of-state schools. Department chairs will determine whether credits accepted by Central State may be used to satisfy major requirements. Grades of “S”, “pass” and “credit” are considered for transfer credit.
The Office of the Registrar will evaluate overall transfer credit for acceptance by the University.
The Department Chair, of the department you are seeking entrance into, will evaluate credits for their applicability to program and degree requirements. How accepted transfer credits are applied toward degree requirements will take place within the first 30 days of your matriculation at Central State University. The student will receive a copy of the degree check sheet and if applicable, a course substitution form will be sent to the Registrar’s Office at this time.
