Transfer Admissions

Approximately 40% of Southern’s student body consists of transfer students who already have some level of higher education experience prior to attending Southern. As a university, we are dedicated to making this transition a positive experience. We welcome applications from students who see great potential in themselves and are ready to make a change. We’ll help you reach your goals and offer you a rich experience along your educational journey.
