Transfer Students

Who is a transfer student? At Boise State, you’re considered a transfer student if you have completed at least one college class for credit after graduating from high school. If you took college level courses during high school you are considered a freshman student with transfer coursework.

Transferring to a new institution can feel complicated and stressful. Advisors are here to help you  successfully transition to Boise State.

For assistance, please contact your academic advisor.  Advisors can be found at https://aae.boisestate.edu/advisingcontacts/
