Program Details

We welcome transfer students from regionally accredited community and junior colleges and four-year colleges and universities. If you’ve ever been enrolled in any such institution, you are a transfer student. To apply, we ask that you submit the following:

  • A formal application for admission
  • A non-refundable $30 application fee
  • Transcripts (official or unofficial) from every college previously attended. Attended the University of Mary before? Then we’ll get your transcripts for you! At most other schools, you can request transcripts by going to the National Student Clearinghouse or by contacting the registrar’s office. You can send transcripts to:
    Office of Admissions
    University of Mary
    7500 University Drive
    Bismarck, ND 58504

Prospective students with at least 24 transferable credits must have a cumulative college GPA of 2.0 or higher. If you have fewer than 24 transfer hours to evaluate, we also require the following to determine your opportunity for success:

  • Academic transcript(s) from high school or GED transcript (if applicable) and any college(s) concurrently attended during high school.
  • An official score report from the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) examination (if you are under 21).

Admissions and a free preliminary transfer credit review can be completed with unofficial transcripts from any previous colleges or universities you attended. Official, final transcripts must be submitted prior to enrolling in classes.
