Additional Information for Prospective Transfer Students

Prospective transfer students must carry a minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA in all previous coursework to be eligible to enter UNC Charlotte in the Belk College of Business.  All eligible transfer students, regardless of credit hours, are admitted as pre-majors and must participate in Student Orientation and Registration (SOAR). Transfer students with less than a 2.5 cumulative GPA will be admitted as Undeclared majors if they meet all other UNC Charlotte admission criteria. They may change majors to the Belk College after fulfilling the requirements above for Current UNC Charlotte Students.

UNC Charlotte’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions maintains an online service that can help future students determine which prior coursework has been approved for transfer to the University.  Business courses must have previously been evaluated by the Belk College to appear in this database, which means transfer students may need to seek a special evaluation of their prior business coursework to receive full credit. To do this, newly admitted transfer students should contact the Acadmeic and Career Coaching Office to receive assistance from their future Academic and Career Coach.  Transfer students must provide catalog course descriptions or syllabi in order to have credit evaluated for transfer.
