Transfer Applicants


An applicant who has studied at a recognized institution of higher education may apply for admission as a transfer student. They will be favorably considered for all academic work completed with a grade of “C” or higher at each prior institution for undergraduate programs; or a grade of “B” or higher for graduate programs.

A transfer applicant will not be considered if he/she is on academic probation, suspension or dismissal from the previous institution; if he/she would be on academic probation upon return to the previous institution; or if on disciplinary probation during or following the last term at the previous institution; or within one (1) year after dismissal. Applicants with less than the minimum GPA can request to the Admission Committee acceptance into the university on a conditional status. Final determination is at the discretion of the Admission Committee.

Any undergraduate student applying for admission to Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico (Orlando Campus) should know that only two thirds of the total number of credits required for the degree can be awarded as transfer credits, including no more than half of the specialization’s credit requirements. The courses and credits that will be transferred to a student for the program they are enrolling in will be based on the academic program requirement. Transferred grades will not be used for the evaluation of her/his Grade Point Average. All transfer students must approve at Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico no less than 65% of the credits required for graduation to be eligible for academic honors.

Any graduate student applying for admission to Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico (Orlando Campus) should know that only 18 credits required for the degree can be awarded as transfer credits, including no more than half of the specialization’s credit requirements. Graduate students requesting transfer credits from our institution MEM program to the MBA program, or vice versa, will be awarded with only the 18 credits of the core courses. Courses already taken and not transferred should be substituted by other program courses. All students must request their Bachelor degree transcript to be submitted to the PUPR-Orlando.
