An applicant who has studied at a recognized institution of higher education may apply for admission as a transfer student. Transfer applicants must have passed no fewer than nine transferable college credit-hours. They will be favorably considered for all academic work completed with a C or higher grade at each prior institution. Transfer credit-hours are limited to work satisfactorily completed at an accredited college or university within a five year period immediately preceding application for admission.
A transfer applicant will not be considered if he or she is on academic probation, suspension, or dismissal from the previous institution; if he or 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 year after dismissal.
All students who have passed nine transferable credit hours at an accredited college or university prior to applying for admission to Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico must submit:
An application for admission. An application for admission will not be considered unless received on or before the application deadline indicated in the academic calendar. The institution reserves the right to refuse applications for admission once enrollment limits are reached.
An official transcript from each institution of higher education previously attended. The transcript should be sent directly from the institution(s) of origin to the Admissions Office. The transcript(s) must furnish a statement of good standing. Student copies of official transcripts are not acceptable. The applicant who is actively enrolled in another institution at the time of application should request a current official transcript to be forwarded immediately. An official transcript, including the final grades of the last quarter or semester of attendance, must be requested and sent to the Admissions Office.
A copy of the latest edition of the undergraduate catalog from each institution of higher education previously attended.
Payment of a thirty dollar ($30.00) application fee with the completed application form. The application fee is non refundable and will not be applicable toward the student's registration charges.
All transfer students must submit a letter of recommendation signed by the Dean of Student Affairs of the previous institution.
An Immunization Certificate (applies only to applicants under 21 years of age).
Aliens must submit a copy of immigration status.
Candidates from institutions of higher education who would have met the admission requirements of high school applicants prior to their university experience will be taken into consideration for transfer admission.
