Admission to Degree Program

First-semester transfer students will be allowed to register without a degree hold, regardless of the number of transferable credit hours.  If the student has completed 75 or more credit hours, a "DG" hold will appear on the record prior to registration for the second semester.  If the student has completed 90 or more credit hours, a "DX" hold will appear on the record prior to registration for the second semester.  It is important to explain the purpose of the "DG" and "DX" holds to transfer students entering as juniors or seniors to stress the importance of timely admission into a degree program.   Here is additional information regarding the process to be admitted into the degree program
