Transfer Services

BSU welcomes approximately 1,500 transfer students each year — and we make every effort to streamline the process and get you settled in as a member of our community. At our dedicated Transfer Center, we’ll work with you to figure out how to transfer credits, which major to pursue and which courses to take next.
