Transfer Student Admissions Guidelines

Failure to disclose a complete collegiate record may result in the denial of admission to or the dismissal from Chadron State College. Students may not omit or disregard any part of their previous college records, whether part or full-time, with or without degree objectives, whether or not credit has been granted or whether or not they desire to transfer credit.

Prospective transfer students must be eligible to return to the institution last attended. Those who have been suspended or dismissed from another college or university for academic or personal reasons may not be considered for admission until eligible to return to their former institution, or until one full academic semester has elapsed.


One official transcript from each college attended must be submitted, even if no credit was earned at the institution. Students may not omit any part of their previous college record, whether part-time or full-time, with or without degree objectives, whether or not credit has been granted, or whether or not they desire to transfer credit. Failure to disclose a complete collegiate record may result in denial of admission or in dismissal from Chadron State College. One official high school transcript is required if the applicant has attempted fewer than 12 college credits, or at the discretion of the Admissions Office.

Grade Point Average

Transfer applicants must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of "C" (2.0) earned at institutions accredited by a regional higher education accrediting agency to be eligible for admission without qualification. If accepted, students with grade point averages below this level or who earned their credit from non-accredited schools are admitted on a probationary status.

Health Form Requirement

All students entering any Nebraska State College institution must show physician-valuated immunization records. For more details on the health form requirements, please visit our Health Services page.

Associates Degree & Essential Studies Waiver

Students who have completed an Associate’s degree from a regionally accredited institution, which includes all Nebraska community colleges, will have met all Essential Studies requirements, if their earlier coursework includes 30 or more credit hours of general studies courses. Completion of specific lower division courses may also be required in individual degree programs.

Students enrolled in Associate degree programs are encouraged to complete their program requirements prior to enrolling at CSC to maximize credit transfer and to possibly qualify for the Essential Studies waiver. Students who are close to completion may be advised to complete any remaining hours toward their associates degree completion through reverse transfer. For more information, contact the START Office at

Students with an Associate of Applied Science, or an Associate of Occupational Studies degree should check with the CSC Records for specific details regarding additional Essential Studies credits that may be required for graduation.

Unofficial Credit Evaluation

Prospective students can request an unofficial credit evaluation by contacting the START office and submitting their transcripts. The transcripts can be faxed or emailed to 308-432-6058 or We require individual transcripts from each school and they must be sent in PDF format and include the name of the institution. Screen shots, JPEGS, Course History or Listings, will not be accepted.

Transcript Evaluation

Students are required to provide official transcripts, prior to enrollment. Once enrollment requirements are submitted, a student is assigned the "Ready to Register" form to complete to request enrollment for their first semester/session. Upon receipt of the Ready to Register form, the student's official transcripts are evaluated by the CSC Records Office and the student's Degree Audit within MyCSC is updated (in-progress transfer work is not reflected on the Degree Audit). This can take up to 7-10 business days.

If a student has in-progress work at the time the transcript was evaluated, the Degree Audit will be updated when the final, official transcript is received reflecting final grades and degrees earned.

Students who have questions or concerns about their Degree Audit should contact the START office at or 308-432-6311.

Course Study Planning Responsibility

Responsibility for planning one's course of study and the fulfillment of all requirements and regulations lies with the student. Faculty advisors are assigned to aid the student in understanding the requirements and in planning their academic program. The college catalog is the authoritative source of information on program and graduation requirements and regulations. Complete course prerequisites and other information is included in the CSC catalog under course descriptions.
