How to Apply

You're considered a transfer student if you have completed at least 12 credit hours at another college or university. To be considered for admission at Rockhurst, please submit the following:

  1. Apply online for free. 
  2. Send us your up-to-date transcripts from each college or university you've attended.
  3. If you have completed less than 24 hours of college coursework, you must also send us your high school transcript and ACT/SAT scores. Some high schools include test scores on their transcript.

Transcripts must be official and in a sealed envelope. Faxed transcripts are not considered official documents. An online transcript request process is often available, so check your school's website.
