- Applications from transfer students can be from two-year colleges, four-year colleges, and universities accredited by their respective regional association.
- The cumulative GPA must be 2.0 or above.
- Official transcripts from all colleges or universities attended must be submitted for admission consideration.
- College course credits obtained within the last 10 years are not accepted automatically and will be at the discretion of the appropriate department.
- Courses to be transferred must be equivalent to respective CSU courses. Credits are evaluated according the specific academic program.
- Course grades must at least be a “C” in order for the transfer credit to count.
Students who have been dismissed from previous institutions within the last 12 months cannot be considered for admission to Central State University.
As a member of the University System of Ohio, Central State University offers students the ability to streamline credit transfer from state's public institutions of higher education and from adult/secondary career-technical institutions to find the best pathways to degree completion and launch successful careers.
Your college credit may apply to a degree in two ways:
1. General education requirements – academic courses in English and Oral Communications, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities, and Mathematics make up each institution's general education requirements, totaling 36-40 semester hours. A student with successfully completed general education courses at one Ohio public college or university listed can apply the credit similarly toward general education requirements at any other Ohio public institution of higher education.
2. Guaranteed transfer-to-degree pathways – allows you to transfer, in simple and direct ways, a core of credits that count toward your chosen major.
