Helpful things to know about transferring to Maryville

Maryville welcomes and encourages adults to return to school. We prefer that transfer students have a 2.0 grade-point average on a 4.0 scale for all college work, but all students and their applications receive careful review in the admissions process.

  • High school transcripts  (or a GED) are required for transfers with fewer than 60 transferable hours or for admission to certain programs
  • A maximum of 68 credit hours from a two-year college will be counted toward the completion of a bachelor’s degree
  • Last 30 credit hours of your bachelor’s degree must be taken at Maryville
  • One half of  your major and minor (if required) must be taken at Maryville

Maryville University will accept transfer credits from regionally accredited institutions. Transfer credits from institutions and programs with other accreditations approved by the Department of Education will be considered, and acceptance will be decided by individual academic program processes. All transferring students with credits are advised to meet with their degree program advisers for planning the application of transfer credits toward a Maryville University degree.  Students who possess an Associate of Arts General Transfer degree from an accredited institution, which follows the Missouri Coordinating Board for Higher Education guidelines, or a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution have fulfilled Maryville’s general education requirement.
