Transfer Students

Admissions Requirements

The Office of Admissions will only evaluate coursework completed at regionally accredited institutions. However, students must submit transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended, whether transfer credit will be awarded or not. If you have any questions regarding accreditation, please contact the Office of Admissions.

Freshman Transfers

Students who have completed less than 30 hours of college-level coursework must meet freshman admission requirements and submit official copies of the following documents: 

  • High School transcripts
  • SAT/ACT scores
  • College/university transcripts


Other Transfers

Admissions decisions for transfers with more than 30 hours of college-level credits will be based solely on college coursework completed.

Application Procedure

1. Submit an Application for Admission
The most convenient way to submit an application for admission is to complete the online application. Transfer students who have previously attended YHC should submit the application for re-admission.

2. Submit the Student Transfer Form
All students who have attended any post-secondary institution prior to enrolling in YHC need to complete the Student Transfer Form for the most recently attended institution. The Chief Judicial Officer can be a staff member from your institution's Registrar Office/Bursar. Once completed, it must be scanned and sent to or to the following address: 

Young Harris College
Office of Admissions
P.O. Box 116
Young Harris, GA 30582

Your application for admission will not be considered complete and an admissions decision will not be made until this form is submitted.

3. Submit Official College Transcripts

Transfer students with 30 or more hours of college-level work will need to provide transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended.


Transfer students who have earned more than 30 credit hours and have a 3.00 college GPA or higher are eligible to receive YHC's Miller Match scholarship, a $15,000 scholarship that goes directly to the cost of tuition. Students who have below a 3.00 college GPA will receive a $13,000 scholarship.

Students who have completed less than 30 hours of college-level coursework will be considered for freshman scholarships.
