Thank you for connecting with Valley City State University's application process. A transfer applicant is any student who has previously attended one or more post-secondary institutions after having completed high school. Transferring from one school to another can be easy - as long as you plan, prepare, and communicate. Research degree requirements, talk with your advisors, and ask plenty of questions. We are here to help you get the answers you need to make a smooth, seamless transition to VCSU!

Online Students

Due to individual state regulations we are not able to accept applications for online coursework delivered to Alabama, Arkansas and Maryland at this time.

Notice to Transfer Students

The admission standards for all NDUS institutions are under review by the State Board of Higher Education.
In order to be considered for admission, you must have a 2.00 GPA on a 4.00 scale. Applicants are reviewed and considered on an individual basis. Once you have been admitted to VCSU, we will mail you a graduation audit showing how previously earned credits have transferred to VCSU in your planned academic area. Because each transfer student is unique, contact a Transfer Specialist to address your concerns.

If you have completed less than 24 transferable credits, you must follow freshmen applicant requirements as well.

  • Application for admission
  • A non-refundable fee of $35
