Transferring to Eureka College

We Understand the Need for a Change...

The Uniquely Eureka Promise offers qualifying transfer students an opportunity to obtain a Bachelor’s degree. This Promise will cover the base tuition charge for incoming transfer students for four semesters who are Illinois residents and meet the academic and financial aid requirements of the promise.



2024 Orientation


To make the transferring process easier, we have compiled a list of important guidelines to follow:

  • Students must submit official transcripts from ALL colleges or universities attended as part of the application process.  Final transcripts must be provided prior to registration for classes.
  • Transfer students should have transferable GPA of at least 2.0. A transcript evaluation will determine your transferable GPA.
  • Credits require a grade of “C” or better in transferable courses from recognized colleges and universities.
  • Transfer students who have earned less than 12 transferable semester hours will be evaluated based on high school work in addition to college work completed.
  • Transfer students who have earned more than 12 transferable semester hours will be evaluated for admission based on college work alone.
  • Eureka College will accept up to 68 hours of credit from two-year institutions. Students entering with 68 credits or a completed Associate’s degree will enter the Junior class.
  • Eureka College will accept up to 90 hours of credit from four-year institutions.
