  4. PHONE REVIEW – A phone appointment will be set up with you to go over your degree requirements, how your credits will transfer and institutional policies. At the time of the phone evaluation, your schedule will be determined.

  5. FINAL STEPS – Once scheduled, the final steps are for you to make sure all required documents are submitted. For undergraduate students, be sure to register for one of our FIRE events (First-Year Interaction and Registration Experience)

We assess all transfer students individually, but here is what we recommend to transfer to TU:

  • A recommended minimum of a 2.0 cumulative GPA from the college you are leaving, or of combined credits if you are transferring credits from more than one school
  • Transfer Guides explain what credits will transfer to your Tiffin University academic record
  • You can receive transcript evaluations prior to enrolling—often immediately – so you know right away what transfer credits are awarded and what courses are required to complete your degree at TU
  • Transfer Scholarships are available to qualified students
