Admission Tips

Students transferring to ERAU must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 at the last institution attended and a combined cumulative grade point average of 2.0 for all institutions attended to be considered for admission.  A grade of "C" or better is required to be accepted as transfer credit.  Apply for financial aid between January 1 and March 2 prior to transfer if you can. Start researching scholarships early. It is a good idea to see a ERAU admission advisor once you have completed 40-50 units.  

Allan Hancock College counselors are committed to providing students with quality transfer planning information. This pathway has been developed using a variety of resources provided by the four-year university. It is not an admission guarantee, but a recommendation intended to provide students with clear information about courses that they will need to take in order to successfully transfer. Every effort has been made to make this pathway as accurate as possible; however, it is ultimately the student's responsibility to stay aware of changes that may affect his or her transfer. Because of the dynamic nature of articulation information and admission policies, information provided within this pathway is subject to change.
