On-Campus Transfer Students

Take the Next Step




At DSU, we encourage you to begin the transfer process early. This will ensure a smooth transition and allow you to take the time to visit campus and meet with faculty and staff.

Please follow up with Enrollment Services for all aspects of your application, registration and payment especially if you apply within one month of the start of the semester. Dana Hoff is the DSU Transfer Coordinator and will help you with the process at anytime. You may reach her at 1 605 256 5139 or dana.hoff@dsu.edu


To begin the process of transferring to Dakota State, apply online or request an application for admission from the Enrollment Services office.

Make sure to submit these items to complete your application file:

  • $20 application fee (not needed if transferring from another regental institution within the last 3 semesters)
  • Official high school transcript
  • Official transcripts from all institutions attended
  • Official ACT or SAT scores (if 21 and under)
  • Copy of immunization record

**If transferring from another regental institution, you will not need to resubmit documents given to the previous institution. Please provide us with any new documents you have not submitted to a regental university.**

Admission Requirements

Transfer students with more than 24 semester credits or more are eligible for admission if they meet both standards below:

  • Have a cumulative college GPA of 2.0 or higher AND
