Transfer students from other accredited colleges and universities who are legal residents of Oklahoma may transfer to SWOSU under the following conditions:
- If the student originally met both the high school curricular requirements and academic performance standards of SWOSU, the student must have a grade point average high enough to meet SWOSU's retention standards; or
- If the student originally met the Oklahoma High School 15 Unit Core Curricular Requirements (see below) but not the academic performance standards of SWOSU, the student must have a grade point average high enough to meet SWOSU's retention standards, and must also complete the curricular requirements before transferring; or
- If the student originally met neither the high school curricular requirements and academic performance standards of SWOSU, the student must have a grade point average high enough to meet SWOSU's retention standards, based on at least 24 completed semester credit hours of regularly-graded (A,B,C,D,F) college work and must also complete the curricular requirements, as specified.

Transfer students who are not residents of Oklahoma may transfer from an out-of-state institution if they meet the following requirements: meet university admission requirements; have a cumulative college GPA of at least 2.0; and be in good standing at the institution from which they are transferring. Transfer students whose scholastic records do not meet minimum standards may be admitted on probation for a semester on the same basis as SWOSU students.
Once transfer students have been accepted to SWOSU they may contact the Admissions and Recruitment Office, at 580.774.3782 or firstname.lastname@example.org, for assistance with departmental advisement and enrollment. Transfer students will meet individually with an academic advisor to enroll in classes. The Admissions and Recruitment Office also schedules campus and residence hall tours on the day students visit SWOSU for academic advisement.
Many transfer students prefer an individual advisement session; however, transfer students are welcome to attend a New Student Orientation (NSO) session to enroll at the same time as a small group of incoming freshmen. Students may complete the online registration form or call the NSO office (580.774.3233) to sign up for a New Student Orientation session. There are six NSO dates to choose from beginning each spring through August.
Transfer students automatically will be enrolled in a free Transfer Student Orientation course on Canvas. Canvas is a web-based course management system. The course is designed to provide transfer students with additional information about SWOSU and university policies. The online course is strictly to provide information—there is no grade for the course.
If you have any questions about transfer orientation, contact the New Student Orientation office at 580.774.3233 or email@example.com.
The focus is you.
