Transfer Student Admission
Transfer students are students who have previously been enrolled at another college or university after high school graduation.
If you are considering transferring to Houston Baptist University, you are in good company. Each year, transfer students make up a large percentage of our entering class. They come for many reasons: the quality of our academic programs, our class size and student-to-faculty ratio, the welcoming Christian environment in which to learn, and our location in southwest Texas.

Interested in Nursing at HBU?
Acceptance into the School of Nursing and Allied Health is a “two tiered” process. The first step is to gain general admission to the University. The second step requires that you meet with a nursing advisor to learn about receiving a nursing application. Please visit the nursing webpage to learn about all the application requirements and deadlines.
Please review our course equivalency guide if you need help determining if you have met all the nursing prerequisite courses.
*Please note: If your cumulative Admissions GPA at the time of application is not 3.0 or above, your application will not be forwarded to the School of Nursing and Allied Health for consideration. However, it would be beneficial to meet with an Admissions Counselor to explore other opportunities and majors.
