Christopher Newport Transfer Admission Updates and Virtual Events

Below are some updates from Christopher Newport Transfer Admission and Enrollment.

Admission Information:

More information about Christopher Newport’s transfer application, process, and deadlines can be found online: Students can apply now through the Common Application or Coalition Application.  Our full transfer guide is located here! Our priority application date for Fall 2021 is March 1 with the application closing on July 17. We always encourage interested applicants to apply early or by a priority application date!

To be considered for transfer admission, priority is focused on those students presenting a minimum cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0, 15 hours of college level credit, a history of full-time enrollment each semester (12-15 cr) and completion of one class in college-level mathematics and a college-level English course.

We are requesting that students have their admission related documentation sent to us electronically during this time if possible (mail is ok, too). We accept transcripts and transfer college reports as official documents when they are sent directly from the school. Documents can be sent via email to or fax to 757-594-7711. Transcripts can continue to be sent via Parchment, National Student Clearinghouse, and E-Script if possible. Students can find the Transfer College Report and other admissions related documents linked on our website.
