We are here to help students navigate the transfer admission process, understand how credits transfer, assist with solving transfer problems and participate in scheduling and advising for incoming transfer students.

What is a transfer student?

You are a transfer student if you are currently attending, or have attended, a community college or other four-year college/university after high school graduation or earning a GED. You are transferring to CMU from a different college/university.

Admission Requirements

Step 1


  1. Complete the Application for Admission

    Choose your application type and apply for admission.

  2. $40 Application Fee

    Your application to Colorado Mesa University requests an application fee of $40. Contact your admissions counselor to waive your application fee.

Step 2

Submit Transcripts

Electronic Transcript Services:

*Official college and high school transcripts must be sent directly to a CMU official or CMU office from your previous institution or an electronic transcript delivery service.

Official transcripts can be sent via electronic delivery service, by email to [email protected] or mailed to:

Colorado Mesa University Admissions Office
1100 North Avenue
Grand Junction, CO 81501

  1. Official College Transcripts

    Must provide official transcript directly from every college/university attended, regardless of the type or amount of credit, academic status, or time elapsed since credit was earned. CMU utilizes the National Student Clearinghouse to verify that all college transcripts are received for applicants. Failure to provide all college transcripts is grounds for rejection or dismissal.

  2. If you have NOT completed 24 college credits yet after high school, we also require official high school transcript or GED scores.

    Optional: SAT/ACT results can be used for Spring 2024 merit scholarship consideration. Results can also be used in the admission review policy.
