The College encourages the competent student who has valid reasons for wishing to transfer, but cannot encourage the applicant with a history of academic or disciplinary difficulty.
Although there is no specific grade point average requirement; most admitted transfer students have a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or above. Grades earned at other institutions are not included in the computation of the student’s grade point average at Keene State.
