Transfer Students

We Help You Transition Smoothly.


Creighton welcomes transfer students from around the world at the beginning of both our spring and fall semesters. Transfer students are those who:

  • Have been out of high school for at least one semester


  • Have completed at least 12 credit hours of college-level coursework

If you graduated high school before 2011, you are considered a ‘Professional Student’ and will be working with the College of Professional Studies.

As an admitted Creighton student, you’ll benefit from the full Creighton experience, including substantial merit-based scholarships and financial aid, personalized instruction, and opportunities to get involved through student organizations. Most importantly, you’ll hit the ground running thanks to our generous credit-transference policy and feel right at home in our tight-knit, supportive community.

Here’s a convenient checklist that tells you step-by-step what you have to do to join us on campus and when you need to do it:
