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.

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.
