Each year over 3000 new transfer students choose George Mason University to complete their bachelor's degree. Students who have graduated from high school or earned a GED are considered transfer applicants. Qualified applicants generally have completed 30 or more transferable credits from a regionally accredited college or university. Applicants with less than 30 transferable credits must meet both freshman and transfer admission criteria. Admission is competitive and the University receives far more applications than spaces available in the transfer class. Applications received by the priority deadline are reviewed first. Late applicants are considered on a space-available basis.
