Transfer Student Admissions

Welcome to the Transfer Student Admission information section

Richmond welcomes applications from transfer students who have completed university-level work at an institution of higher education that is appropriately accredited or recognised by the relevant governmental agencies in its own country. Transfer applicants must usually have a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or higher and have been in good academic standing upon transferring out of their prior institution.

Please refer to the full Transfer Credit Policy:

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • When will I find out about my transfer credits?
  • How will I know which courses have transferred?

The Richmond Academic Registry carries out an evaluation of applicants' previous studies to consider all courses for possible transfer credit, and ensure that applicants receive the most useful and appropriate transfer credits – this will depend upon choice of major and point of entry on to the Richmond academic programme. An estimated length of time to graduation is calculated and the applicant is informed of the details by email.
