Transferring to ECU Made Easy!

We're happy that you've decided to continue your education at East Central University. We want this process to be as simple as possible.

To get started, you will need the following items:

  • Official High School Transcript (If less than 24 hours college credit completed)
  • College Transcript
  • ACT/SAT Scores optional
  • Immunization Records
  • $20 Application Fee

Once you have these items, get started!

1. Apply to ECU

  • Transfer students who have attempted 24 or more college credit hours will be required to submit all college transcripts and must have a retention GPA of 2.0 or higher to meet the transfer admission criteria.

  • Transfer students with fewer than 24 attempted college credit hours will be required to submit their high school transcript or GED/HiSET transcript. ACT and SAT scores are optional but can be used for admission consideration if supplied. These applicants will be reviewed utilizing the freshman admission requirements.

2. See What Transfers

To help ease the transfer process, ECU has articulation agreements with Eastern Oklahoma State College, Murray State College, Rose State College, and Seminole State College.

3. Get Enrolled

Once you have been admitted to ECU, it is time to plan your first semester of classes. The ECU Academic Success Center has an advising team ready to help you with this. You can call 580-559-5696 to schedule an appointment with an advisor. After your first semester, you’ll meet with a faculty advisor within your academic program. 

Curricular Deficiencies

Students must meet the basic academic curricular requirements for admission to Baccalaureate Programs. In order to satisfy these requirements, the applicant must have completed and passed one college-level English course, one college-level Science course with lab, one college-level Math course, two college-level history or economics courses and one college-level United States Government course. If the applicant has not satisfied these requirements at the post-secondary level, the applicant's high school transcript may be used to ensure that all basic academic requirements have been met (see Freshman Admissions for eligibility). The student's ACT scores may also be used to remediate curricular deficiencies. Subscores of 19 or above demonstrate proficiency in that subject area. Students who do not satisfy the basic academic curricular requirements will be required to remediate curricular deficiencies and will be instructed on how to do so.
